The first wind turbine in the supply area covered by the Vienna municipal utility, WienStrom, is being planned by WindstroM Gerasdorf, founded at the end of January specifically to develop the project. With the help of Austrian wind consultancy company, Energiewerkstatt of Friedburg, WindstroM Gerasdorf has chosen the Micon 600 kW for the project. The next step, says WindstroM, is to tackle the official licensing procedure before preparation of the site. A prospectus for the project will be published soon, inviting investment at a guaranteed minimum interest rate and fixed date of payback, or as sleeping partners. WindstroM Gerasdorf hopes to have the turbine installed and operating by the autumn.
