Francop inaugurated


Hamburg's largest wind station of six 600 kW turbines at Francop was opened by environment Senator Fritz Vahrenholt last month. Costing DEM 8.5 million, the plant received DEM 120,000 from the Hamburg environment ministry. Vahrenholt stressed the environmental advantages of wind energy but also pointed out that 40 schools participating in an energy saving project had saved around one million kilowatt hours in a single year, or more than the annual production of a wind turbine, simply through changing habits of energy use.
