FIFTY-five windmills have been renovated in Majorca so that they have the facilities to produce electricity and they should be in working order towards the end of this year, said the Majorca Windmill Association.

Three months of testing is needed and then all that remains is to sign the purchase contract with the electrical company Gesa Endesa.
The Vicepresident of the association, Jose Pascual Tortella, yesterday met with the Leader of the Balearic Government, Jaume Matas, to inform him about the projects in progress.

Not only will windmills convert salty water, which otherwise could not be used, into electricity energy, but they will also add to the heritage of the countryside, said Jose Pascual Tortella. The association also asked Matas to approve the construction of two new windmills, as replicas of the characteristic windmills at Es Jonquet in Palma.
