Twenty-four Danish Micon wind turbines, 8 MW installed capacity, are going up in Germany this autumn in a period of just eight weeks. Half of the turbines are being erected in eastern Germany, including the first Micon 600 kW to be installed at a low wind, inland location. The machine is going up at Thüringia in Weissbach for a private operator. Last month a second wind station for Hessen-Wind was installed at Flechtdorf consisting of six M700 225 kW turbines. The first wind station for Hessen Wind, three Micon 225 kW machines, was installed at Ulrichstein at the end of July. The M700 is a further development of the M600, of which more than 500 are already in operation. Hessen Wind is an agency set up by the Hesse state to promote the use of wind energy.
