At the beginning of the year, however, Spanish developer EHN ordered 100, 750 kW turbines from the company (main story), and this created a dilemma. EHN wanted a hybrid of the two turbines -- a mostly Zond machine incorporating Tacke's pitch and yaw systems. Technical co-operation between Enron's European and American engineering sectors has since flowed across the Atlantic and resulted in a 900 kW prototype, designed, built and managed solely under the name Enron Wind (Windpower Monthly, March 2001). The unit is on-line at an EHN plant in Navarre.
The decision to concentrate on the one brand name follows Enron Corp's acquisition of 100% of Enron Wind in March 1999, when it took over a handful of privately owned minority shares.
