LEITWIND has announced that one of its LTW77 1.5 MW wind turbines will be erected in Bayonne, N.J. According to the company, the turbine will be visible from Battery Park in Lower Manhattan, as well as from many other locations in the metropolitan area.

The wind turbine is being installed together with LEITWIND's Colorado-based sister company, Leitner-Poma of America. The hub, generator and main-frame components were manufactured in LEITWIND's production facility in Austria. However, domestic supply is guaranteed, as the rotor blades, electronic components and tower were manufactured in the U.S.

The installation of the turbine is under contract with the Bayonne Municipal Utilities Authority by local company FAI-GON ELECTRIC, with support of LEITWIND. The clean energy produced by the wind turbine will be supplied to the Oak Street Pumping Station, the main sanitary storm-water pumping station serving the City of Bayonne.

The wind turbine is expected to produce approximately 3.3 GWh of electricity per year, the company adds.
