Baltic-1 wind park online in OSM, too

Hi,

I got in contact with EnBW, the operator of the new wind park in front of the coast of Germany. They donated me the exact positions of the generators, so now they are visible for Wikipedia and flight simulators, too :)

Using Area around power generators is not a good idea. You can add all power generators to a relation and add tags to a relation (name, operator, source, wikipedia, power rating, etc.) Although I don't know what type to use for this kind of relation http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation .

Yes, this was my opinion, too. But this was done by another mapper, and I doesn't think that it's that bad to delete it. So it's visible even on low zoom levels.
