SAN DIEGO, Sept. 4 /CNW/ -- Helix Wind, Inc., a San Diego, CA based
manufacturer of small wind turbines, today entered into a firm sales agreement
with EDAL RE, Inc., (Energy Development Argentina Limited), a leading cell
phone tower construction and services provider and renewable energy
distributor in Argentina.
EDAL is a leading developer of distributed power generation solutions for
wireless communications towers in remote areas and in regions with unreliable
power supplies, as well as for irrigation and liquids pumping applications.
The company plans on targeting markets in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile,
Brazil, Aruba and the Antilles. The Agreement, which provides for the purchase
of at least 1,500 units over the next three years, reflects the growing demand
for renewable energy solutions in South America, and the increasing cost of
petroleum based mobile power generation.
"The flexibility of the Helix platform makes it ideal for a diverse range
of applications, from distributed off grid power generation to water pumping
for irrigation and drinking," says Helix Wind CEO, Ian Gardner. "We're pleased
to be partnering with a leader in this field in the South American markets."
Javier Wolcoff, President and CEO of EDAL, adds, "We evaluated a number of
vertical axis wind turbines before selecting Helix for our customers. The
flexibility of the platform, aesthetics of the design, efficiency and
durability, and the ease of installation were all factors that contributed to
our decision. We're excited about bringing such an iconic and innovative
product to South America."
