Danish company Wind World has announced the signing of its first contract for a wind station in Germany since opening a German division at Osnabrück in September. The company will supply and install 16, 600 kW W-4200 turbines at a site in Schleswig Holstein in the first half of 1997. A second project is in the pipeline for eight 250 kW turbines in east German Saxony, says the company, adding that it is also "firmly committed" to installing a prototype 750 kW unit in North Rhine Westfalia. Wind World considers its ten year guarantee and insurance package to be a major selling point. It has 500 turbines already running under this deal worldwide. The firm also believes its "optimal speed controller," developed by West Control, to be a major advantage. The device is described as a pulse width modulated frequency transformer with a high frequency filter for production of quality power under variable speed operation.
