Markham has sold the rights to its 600 kW VS45 wind turbine to WindMaster Nederland BV. The sale comes after Markham's parent company, Trafalgar House, was acquired by Kvaerner ASA -- an international group registered in Norway. According Markham's Peter Bate the decision to find a buyer for the turbine was taken within Markham. Bate explains that although there had been no shortage of interest in the machine Markham was stifled by a lack of finance that prevented the company moving into serious production. WindMaster expects to make the turbine in the UK and is concentrating its search for a manufacturing site in Wales. "We want it to continue to be a British made turbine," says the firm's Chris Glen in London. Markham will be the component supplier.
