TEN 250 KW TURBINES ORDERED FROM ZEPHYR

Ten Zephyr 250 kW turbines have been ordered by the community of Falkenberg and a group of private investors. The machines will be installed in the county of Halland. The Zephyr 250 kW is the first Swedish-made turbine to be certified for use in Sweden and the manufacturer is based in Falkenberg. Swedish energy authority Nutek is providing an extra 15% subsidy for technical development in addition to the standard wind subsidy of 35%. Other communities in Halland are negotiating for installation of a further five Zephyr turbines. The Falkenberg authority has reserved land just outside the city limits and adjacent to the new E6 highway for 15 turbines. There are already several on a coastal site near Falkenberg next to the city refuse dump. Falkenberg also has an array of solar collectors for heating buildings, a power plant fired by locally grown biomass, and hydropower.
