German subsidiary to build three new plant

Brazil's Santa Catarina state distributor, Celesc, has signed contracts with Wobben Windpower for three wind plant with a combined capacity of 12.6 MW. Wobben Windpower is the Brazilian subsidiary of Enercon of Germany, owned by Alloys Wobben. The three wind plant, at Laguna in the south, Bom Jardim da Serra, close to the ridge of the inland plateau, and Agua Doce, in the mid west of the state, were selected on the strength of a wind measurement program started in early 2000. They are to start operations by mid 2002, according to Celesc. Wobben and Celesc will form a special purpose company in which Wobben will provide the investment and Celesc will buy the power, according to local press. The projects are Celesc's first incursion into wind power and it is reportedly seeking partners for further developments. Santa Catarina is one of Brazil's wealthier states, located in the heavily populated and industrialised southeast.
