At the end of November a 500 kW Wind World turbine from Denmark was erected on the tip of a pier making up part of the harbour of Klintehamn on the island Gotland in the Baltic. The turbine has been bought by a farming co-operative, Lantmännen, which owns a huge fodder factory at the harbour. The wind turbine is directly connected to the factory by a 690 V industrial voltage line. Although the animal feed stuff factory is not truly a mill, it serves the same function as old fashioned windmills of yesteryear. The co-operative believes it could now own the first of a totally new concept of electric-wind-mill.
