Plans for wind plant on Karmoy island

Norsk Hydro has unveiled plans to build a wind plant at Karmoy, an island just off Stavanger on the south-west coast of Norway. Karmoy has good wind conditions, a good infrastructure, sufficient net capacity and it has a high local energy consumption, according to Hydro. It hopes to install up to 30 turbines in the south of the island in a joint venture with Haugaland Kraft. Today the island gets its electricity from the mainland. Hydro says it has won local support for the project, though it is unlikely the project will be built before 2007, at the earliest. Norsk Hydro sees the project as further evidence of its commitment to renewable energy and wind power in particular.
