NATIONAL WIND POWER CHANGES HORSE TO BONUS

National Wind Power (NWP) is understood to be changing horse in mid contract and choosing Bonus machines from Denmark for its wind farm at Trysglwyn on Anglesey in Wales. If industry rumours prove correct this would clearly be a blow for British wind turbine manufacturer the Wind Energy Group which fronted the application for a NFFO-3 contract for the site. Trysglwyn is one of a number of schemes in which NWP was involved, but which were submitted by other companies for NFFO contracts. This provided a means for NWP to circumvent the developer capping imposed by the Department of Trade and Industry in awarding contracts. The capping was to encourage a diversity of developers by preventing one walking away with all the contracts by offering exceptionally low bids. In the case of Trysglwyn, placing the NFFO-3 bid using another company was a fairly transparent ruse since NWP had already carried the project through the planning stage. NWP will not confirm if Bonus is the supplier for the project. "We will be placing an order to construct the wind farm in September," is all the company's David Lindley would say.
