German Fuhrländer plans factory in Brazil with high hopes for market
1 June 2001
German wind turbine manufacturer Fuhrländer has such high hopes of the wind power market in South America that it is already planning a production facility for its 1 MW turbine in Brazil. The plan has been sparked by progress on a 25 MW wind power project which Fuhrländer's Brazilian agent, George de Melo Lima, is trying to get off the ground. Pending government approval, rights to the project will be sold to three wind investment funds in Germany run by ProVento, Windwelt and an unnamed third fund owner. Windwelt is an 80% subsidiary of German renewables developer SolarWorld, which holds 6% of Fuhrländer.
