December 08, the Bahrain World Trade Centre wind turbines were put into automatic operation. The turbines were inaugurated in April 2008 and commissioned in June 2008, but could not be put into automatic operation because the advanced communication system between the buildings and the turbines was not ready. This system will automatically ensure that the building and the turbines “talk” together and that the condition is “OK” for turbine operation.
October 08, the final step in Reliance ADA acquiring 33% of the shares in Norwin A/S was taken. As a part of the agreement, Mr. Sudhindra Rao of Reliance ADA and CEO of Global Wind Power Ltd. took the position as Vice Chairman in Norwin.
We are very happy to have Mr. Rao on the board and we believe that he will be a great asset to our company.
Global Wind Power Ltd., a group company in Reliance ADA, has an exclusive license for manufacture of the Norwin 750 kW wind turbine in India.
Mr. M.N. Sudhindra Rao
