Made Tecnologías, the wind turbine division of Spanish utility Endesa, says it is working on contracts to supply 15 of its new 1.32 MW machine for a project in San Gorgonio, California, and nine of the same model for a project at Oupia in France. At home the turbine is planned for use in three new projects, the largest for 23 machines for developer Terranova's Tortosa plant in Catalonia, where Endesa affiliates control electricity distribution. Meantime the company has clinched its first deal to supply variable pitch wind turbines -- a departure from its fixed pitch models to date. Twelve AE-52-800 kW units have been ordered by developer Elecdey. The order is part of a turnkey contract to build the 9.6 MW Tarazona Sur wind plant in Zaragoza province, scheduled to come on-line in April.
