A newcomer to the wind turbine market -- Autoflug Energietechnik of Rellingen -- is progressing to the point where it can offer a machine for sale. Autoflug Energietechnik is a subsidiary of the well established safety systems company, Autoflug. A prototype 1 MW turbine will be in the ground in May 1995. In the meantime, the first Autoflug 100 kW turbine is due to be installed at the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog wind test field. A wind station consisting of ten 100 kW machines is also planned for a site in Saxony later this year. "The best market for 100 kW machines is now abroad," says Uwe Witt from Autoflug Energietechnik. "We made several foreign contacts in Cuba, India and China at the recent Hannover industry trade fair. We were the only wind company with a [shared] stand, so anybody interested in wind came to speak to us. "
