Utility privatisation leads to sell off

Thirty per cent of a Brazilian wind plant operator Centrais Eólicas do Paraná is caught up in the huge privatisation of Paraná state utility Copel. The remaining 70% is owned by Wobben Windpower. Centrais Eólicas do Parana owns a 2.5 MW wind plant of five Enercon turbines at Palmas in Paraná, which thus also comes under the hammer on October 31. As well as the Palmas plant, Wobben has wind stations at Taiba and Prainha in northeast Brazil's Ceara state, as well as a 1.2 MW plant at Pico Truncado in Argentina's Patagonia that uses Brazilian made turbines from Wobben Windpower.
