Denmark's open criticism of China's record on human rights -- the subject of headline news across Europe two months ago -- is being felt by some members of the Danish wind industry. Nordtank's Vagn Trend Poulsen says his company can clearly feel a cooling in the relationship with its Chinese business contacts. He says the Danish-Chinese co-operation on wind projects using Nordtank turbines supported by Danida overseas aid could be delayed by several years. Micon's Ole Bøgelund Nielsen agrees there is tangible Chinese coolness, but says it has not influenced ongoing project negotiations. At Vestas, however, Johannes Poulsen says the company's China projects are proceeding as planned and relationships with China are unchanged.
