The government of Ontario is subsidizing the project with the same amount. This investment will create a total of 174 new jobs by 2012. The company says it will produce wind turbines for commercial and private use in Windsor and run a research and development department there.

The first wind turbine to be produced in Windsor will be of the type WT 6000 Honeywell. According to manufacturer information, this turbine generates about 2,000 kWh of electricity per year. Due to its special design, which reduces air resistance, it can produce electricity already at a wind speed of only 3 km/h. Large turbines need a minimum speed of 13 km/h, Windtronics says.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.

Twenty years does not have to mean the end. Many wind-energy converters (WECs) can continue to feed power into the grid far beyond their original service life. TÜV SÜD experts know what is important in the Assessment and Verification of the Lifetime Extension of Onshore Wind Energy Converters (LTE) and how to leverage opportunities.
