PETERHEAD, SCOTLAND — Scotland's notoriously strong winds could pan out to be a blessing in disguise after the Scottish government recently approved plans for a floating wind farm right off of the Scottish coast. According to the Guardian, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017. The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings. Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually ...
A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012 with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest...
150MW BURGOS WIND FARM EDC Wind Power Corporation A timelapse documentation prepared for Energy Development Corporation (EDC). However, this presentation represents the author's own edit. It is not the approved version of EDC. Featuring 50 units of Vestas V90 3MW wind turbines. Commissioned last November 5, 2014. The estimated cost for the construction of the wind farm was US$450 million. Coverage commenced from the arrival of turbine components last October 2013, with the blades, nacelles and tower segments arriving at Omnico Port, Ilocos Norte. These parts were later transferred to Burgos through barging. Significant stages of the construction were covered: from Foundation Preparation up to Tower Erection. Hundreds of thousand still shots taken using CANON 5D Mark3 with various Cano...
This film offers some insight into the exciting and challenging process it has been to construct Denmark's largest offshore wind farm, Anholt, with a site approx. 20km long and approx. 5km wide and covers an area four times the size of the island of Anholt. More than 100 vessels were involved in the construction, and more than 3,000 people have been working offshore at the construction site.
China's largest offshore wind farm in eastern Jiangsu Province was officially put into operation on Saturday. The wind farm, located in Rudong County of coastal Nantong City, will generate 820 million kilowatt hours of electricity every year, saving about 270,000 tons of coals in thermal power generation and cutting nearly 500,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The farm, with an installed capacity of 300 megawatts of power, was constructed by China Huaneng Group. Construction began in April 2016. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20171002/8062333.shtml#!language=1 Subscribe us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CCTVPlus CCTV+ official website: http://www.cctvplus.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS ...
http://www.infineon.com/energy-efficiency - Energy means life: It heats houses, powers cars and lights megacities. The global appetite for energy is voracious, while resources are dwindling. One third of the energy consumed worldwide is electricity and the trend is rising. The name of the key energy source of the future is energy efficiency. Optimal electricity use is achieved by harnessing smart semiconductor technology: Innovative chip solutions fine-tune cars, industrial plants, consumer and household electronics to use less energy. And smart meters permit evaluation of every kilowatt hour with to-the-minute accuracy, helping to save electricity. The future of Wind Energy can be identified in offshore areas worldwide. Looking just at the North- and Baltic Sea, around 30 offshore win...
In the U.S. today, wind power accounts for about five percent of all electricity generation, but a new project aims to change that. A $300 million installation off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, takes the renewable energy technology out to sea. Gov. Gina Raimondo anticipates the project is the beginning of a new industry, but some locals are skeptical. Mike Taibbi reports.

Nuon has dismantled four offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 2 MW at the Lely wind farm in Ijsselmeer, some 600 metres off the port of Medemblik. The wind farm has been in service for 22 years and is the first offshore wind farm operated by Nuon to be decommissioned and dismantled. Nuon decided to decommission the wind farm as it was approaching the end of its operating life and was becoming less profitable. Watch the time lapse video of the dismantling which was completed in three weeks.
