Another 6 MW of wind plant will be up and running in Tarifa possibly before Christmas, says the Spanish agent of Danish company Nordtank. Nordtank is supplying the 12, 500 kW machines which make up the project, six of which were already connected to the grid last month. The project is owned by Peesa, a company Nordtank owns in partnership with an offshoot of the Danish Elsam utility, Elsam Projekt, and Spain's Sevillana utility. Sited on cliffs overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar, the wind farm is practically hidden from most vantage points and, according to Nordtank's agent, offers little danger to the stable and migrant avian population in Tarifa because of the slow speed (30 rpm) of the 37 metre rotor. Peesa was apparently one of the first few wind farms to be approved in Tarifa, but was held up over financing problems and not over environmental concerns as had been speculated in the past, claims the agent.
