First local wind turbine

CAMBODIA unveiled it’s first-ever wind turbine Wednesday in the port of Sihanoukville, in a pilot project designed to show the benefits of renewable energy. A statement by the European Commission, which contributed 24 percent of the cost of the US$1.74 million project, said the turbine would contribute to the energy needs of the port, which funded 48 percent. The remainder of the capital was provided by the government of Flanders, Belgium, according to the statement, which will provide additional contributions to help monitor the return. The turbine is part of a European scheme aimed at demonstrating green energy use in the region.
