Dutch wind looks as if it will once again book a bumper year for new wind power capacity, having installed 222 MW (171 units) between January and November 2003, according to Wind Service Holland (WSH). The eleven month total already exceeds the 216 MW built in 2002, which was more than double the previous all-time best. Holland now has some 900 MW installed capacity provided by 1579 turbines. The average rated capacity of new turbines, as of November, remains at 1.3 MW -- the same as for 2002 -- while annual production averaged 3.2 million kWh.
