Berkeley, Calif.-based Nordic Windpower has announced that the first three of its two-bladed wind turbines, destined for community and distributed wind energy projects in North and South America, are headed for Rocha, Uruguay.
Nordic Windpower marked the event with a ceremony at its Pocatello, Idaho, facility, which was attended by state and local dignitaries. The company plans to deliver 16 additional N1000 wind turbines to community wind projects as well as a school system, a municipal utility and a military base beginning in early 2010.
The N1000 turbines, rated at 1 MW each, were purchased by Nuevo Manantial SA as part of the 13 MW Nuevo Manantial Wind Farm, located in Paraje Ojos de Agua, Uruguay.
