The German subsidiary of American-Danish wind power developer EnXco has sold its first two wind projects to a Luxembourg investment company owned by American investors. EnXco is now planning two large wind stations in the German state of Thüringia. The two projects, sold to CIC Luxembourg in the autumn, were the almost complete 13 MW Eckolstedt wind station near Apolda in Thüringia and the development rights to the 7.2 MW Kavelstorf wind station, due to come on-line this month. The last of the AN Bonus 1.3 MW machines at Eckolstedt was commissioned in January. The Kavelstorf plant uses Nordex technology, two 2 MW turbines and four 1.3 MW machines. EnXco's Lykke Hansen declines to give details of the new Thüringia projects, though says their planned commissioning dates are end 2001 and the start of 2002. He indicated that the combined capacity of the projects is around 150 MW and that EnXco will probably use Bonus 2 MW or Nordex 2.5 MW machines. EnXco's German subsidiary is based at Pinneberg near Hamburg.
