First wind farm in Cyprus

This corresponds to almost 10 % of the island’s total energy generation capacity. Managed by DK Wind Supply Ltd, financing of the project was secured by Platina Partners LLP, a private equity fund advisor specialising in renewable energy, with the European Investment Bank (EIB) providing 50 % of the project’s credit.

More turbines for the "most beautiful end of the world"

The wind farm Te Uku is being built in the vicinity of the city of Hamilton on the North Island of New Zealand. When it goes into operation in 2011, it will have a capacity of about 64 MW and supply about 30,000 homes with regenerative electricity. For this wind farm, Siemens will deploy its 101 m diameter rotor, which sweeps an area of 8,000 m2, for the first time in the Asian-Pacific region.
