The first NedWind 40, 500 kW turbine from the Netherlands is now turning in Germany near Zobes in the eastern state of Saxony. The operator is a waste disposal and processing company based in Vogtland. The project was completed in record time, in just three months, largely thanks to the co-operative attitude of the local utility, Energieversorgung Sachsen, of Dresden. The German market is likely to see more of the Dutch make. A NedWind 40 machine, sited at Middelharnis in Holland, is currently being tested by German wind institute, DEWI of Wilhelmshaven, for noise levels, output and grid compatibility.
