What do these countries have to do with each other? Well, last week you could have run into employees of Business in Wind there, just like that. That’s why we collected some postcards that we’d like to share with you here. But first, I list of our activities in these countries: 
> Albania: Business in Wind was asked to investigate the possibilities to transport and install a windfarm in Albania. The transport has to go through a mountain ridge with several hairpins and the plan is to install 2MW or bigger wind turbines. Together with Vlastuin Transport Wim went by van through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro to Albania. They have investigated the routes and discussed technical solutions on their way to minimize civil works for road adjustments. In the coming weeks solutions including costs will be summarized and shared with the developer to see if it is a feasible project to be realized as soon as possible to get renewable energy also in Albania.
> Northern Ireland: Transport company Vlastuin transported a number of tower sections and blades of the Enercon E70 E4 wind turbines from Biddinghuizen to Northern Ireland. Coming summer three Enercon’s will be re-installed there. 
Austria > In Austria, Weeversloop is demolishing two foundations and getting out the insert rings to be re-used somewhere else in Europe.
> The Netherlands: Last week Koppejan Wind Service and Barneveldse Kraanverhuur taking care the last three of a row of six Enercon E70 E4 wind turbines from Windplan Groen in Oldebroekertocht disappeared from the horizon. All these turbines will be rebuilt elsewhere to provide power for many years to come.
> Media: Business in Wind also certainly had no shortage of media attention together with Pure Energie last week. Omroep Flevoland, NOS NPO 1 news, RTV Oost and NOS radio 1 news gave attention to the dismantling in Flevoland.
