Wind station operator Energiekontor Bremerhaven will install five Nordex Balcke-Dürr 1 MW machines at a lignite tip at Nierchen in North Rhine Westfalia before the end of the year. The company plans to add another four turbines to the site next year, along with around 50 Nordex machines to other sites in 1998 for a total of about 50 MW: 25 turbines will go to Holssel in Lower Saxony at a site between Bremerhaven and Cuxhaven; and 22, 1.3 MW turbines will form the wind station Krempel, located close to the Holssel plant. Overall, Energiekontor Bremerhaven expects to have 39.7 MW of wind energy installed by the end of 1997, compared with 24 MW at the end of 1996, says the company's Cerstin Lange.
