Kaliningrad, RUSSIA 2002-03-06 [SolarAccess.com] Russia’s first wind farm is under construction. A wind energy plant is nearing completion in the Kaliningrad Region of Russia on the northern coast of the Semba peninsula, one of the area’s windiest spots. A total of 20 turbines will be installed at the facility-five of which are already producing electricity with the remaining set for completion this spring. The turbines are being installed by Danish experts working in conjunction with Kaliningrad builders. Both groups hope to continue working together in the wind industry. The sides have signed a letter of intent to build a 50 MW facility at sea near the town of Baltiysk and Cape Taran, where wind is strong. Each turbine is equipped with onboard computers and can be controlled remotely from a dispatch center.
