Global Wind Power BV, a subsidiary of India-based Reliance ADA Group, has taken over Windbrokers New Equipment. Windbrokers will focus on its core business of selling used wind turbines.

Global Wind Power is expanding its activities to a worldwide level, with a special focus on the U.K., Ireland, Eastern Europe, and North and South America.

Global Wind Power recently opened a production facility with an annual production capacity of 600 MW. This facility will manufacture modern wind turbines with a capacity of 750 kW and 1.5 MW. The smaller wind turbine will be available from October onwards, while the latter is expected to reach the market in mid-2009.

The company is also developing a 2 MW wind turbine, designed by Lagerwey Wind. In 2009, a first prototype will be tested in the Netherlands, while a second one will be erected on a test field in India. Production is expected to begin in 2010.
