TRAMONTANA NAME CHANGE

Wind plant developer Tramontana -- which owns the largest commercial wind plant in France at Port-la-Nouvelle on the Mediterranean coast -- is changing its name to La Compagnie du Vent (LCV). The ownership of the company remains the same, though, with equal shares held by Jean-Michel Germa and IDEX, an energy and waste conglomerate.
