Germany's federal environment ministry will contribute up to EUR 2 million towards a 6 MW wind project being developed in the Czech Republic by local company Green Lines. The Rusova project, planned for a site on the Czech side of the Erzgebirge mountains, will be the first in the country to use large turbines. The three Nordex 2 MW machines will save 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year. The project is the twelfth in a line of joint German and Czech environment protection projects, including a wind plant of three Dewind 600 kW turbines, commissioned in September 2004. It received a grant of EUR 0.81 million from Germany.
