WIND ENERGY PROJECT.

Delta Caribbean NV, a Curacao company, is exploring the possibility of Guyana generating sufficient electricity from wind at commercial levels by 2003, reports CMC (Oct. 30, 2001). The Guyana Government has given Delta exclusive rights to conduct feasibility studies for a wind-energy farm on a 40 km stretch of the coast on the edge of the Atlantic ocean. "There is potential to the extent that we could set up large scale commercial wind energy farms in Guyana," said Prime Minister Sam Hinds after signing a memorandum of understanding with Ronald Kolader, managing director of Delta, which is financing the studies to the tune of US$100,000 in the hope of developing an initial capacity of seven megawatts to be sold to the national grid, controlled by the Guyana Power and Light Inc. (50% owned by the Commonwealth Development Corp. and managed by the Electricity Supply Board of Ireland (ESBI). Delta currently has a 15-year maintenance and management contract for a wind farm it established in Curacao.
