Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] German wind turbine manufacturer PowerWind GmbH has completed the installation of five PowerWind 56 wind turbines in Poland and Romania, the company’s first machines in the region.
Near Toplet, a Romanian town situated in the south western foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, two turbines were installed for Monsson Alma Srl. They are expected to go into operation this month. In Poland, three wind turbines were installed in Ludkowo and Chelmiczki. Both sites are located about 120 kilometres east of Poznan and in total, the turbines have a rated capacity of 4.5 megawatts.
Dr.-Ing. Rainer Kniehl, advisor to Monsson Alma, one of Romania’s leading wind farm developers said: “Besides the technological concept of the turbine, we were impressed by the fact that the PowerWind 56 is particularly well-suited to logistically challenging sites.”
Stefan Heczko, MD of PowerWind added: “Poland and Romania are two of our key markets. We are convinced that these countries have considerable growth potential.”
