The Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) is to build a 7.2 MW wind farm for construction in 1995-1996, according to Belgian wind company WindMaster which has received an order for 24 of its 300 kW machine. The machines are to be erected at an undisclosed site for which planning permission is being sought by IEC. One of the reasons for the choice of WindMaster machines, says the company's Michel Ardoullie, was the incorporation of locally manufactured components for over 50% of the value of the wind turbines. This allowed IEC to go ahead with the project, despite tight budgetary constraints. WindMaster is part of the Dutch Royal Begemann Group.
