"The nacelles of the 80 turbines will be assembled in Husum, bringing benefits to the port and surrounding region of North Frisia," says Butendiek's Wolfgang Paulsen. Management of the project, located about 35 kilometres west of the island of Sylt, will also take place from Husum, says Butendiek. The EUR 400 million wind station is scheduled for completion in 2005.
Vestas promoted its entire family of V90 turbines, with ratings of 1.8 MW, 2 MW and 3 MW, at last month's Husumwind trade fair. Series production of all the turbines will start early next year, says the company. Vestas is promoting the 3 MW as a technology breakthrough (Windpower Monthly, July 2003).
