Tacke Windtechnik of Germany and Micon of Denmark report sales of 600 kW turbines to China.

Two European wind firms report sales of 600 kW turbines to China. Tacke Windtechnik of Germany says it has installed two 600 kW turbines at the Dabancheng wind turbine testing centre near Urumqi in the north west Chinese province of Xinjiang. And this month, nine 600 kW Micon units from Denmark are to go on line in Inner Mongolia, using towers manufactured locally. Last year Micon also installed nine 600 kW turbines in China, says the firm's Dieter Fris, while 16, 250 kW Micon units began operation this year at Dalian in Liaoning.

Tacke's Chinese partner in its project, which is receiving support under Germany's Eldorado programme, is the Xinjiang Wind Energy Company. It was responsible for the local logistics of the project and for manufacturing the towers. The site has good wind conditions with the 600 kW plant expected to yield around 2000 MWh a year. The region could eventually house several hundred megawatt of wind capacity, says Tacke.

The company has built on the success of this first project in China in closing a deal for the installation soon of 11 Tacke 300 kW units in the north west of Hebei province. This project is purely commercial with no state support. For both projects, Tacke is supplying its Cold Weather Modified model, tested in Canada, which operates at down to -20 degrees centigrade.
