December 31 - The last five D8-2000 wind turbines for a wind power generation project in Chile have been moved to the Port of Houston by Composite Technology Corporation's subsidiary DeWind Inc.
They have joined five turbines transported previously to the port for the same project and will be shipped to Chile immediately.
The turbines were assembled in Round Rock, Texas by TECO Westinghouse, where DeWind's D8-2000 and D8.2 turbine assembly capabilities have been established under the terms of a commercial Manufacturing Agreement.
Robert Rugh, President of DeWind, stated, "This shipment successfully completes the assembly phase of this turbine supply contract. The nacelles and hubs will meet up with the blades already shipped from Germany and customer supplied towers in Chile. We now look forwardto the successful erection and commissioning per the customer schedule."
