PowerWind GmbH, a German manufacturer of wind turbines, says it has erected its 50th wind turbine. The 900 kW machine was installed in Poland.
Earlier this year, the company announced that it plans to expand its presence in the U.S. community-scale wind market. The company installed its first wind turbine in the U.S. at the Berkshire East ski resort in Massachusetts.
Over the next 12 months, the German manufacturer plans to supply more than 10 wind turbines to local project developers in New England and the Midwest. The next two turbines will be delivered to Performance Services Inc.
The company says it anticipates installing its 100th wind turbine in summer 2012.
