  • Measure Improves Wind Farm Productivity with New Drone-Based Inspections 09/22/2017
    ...Measure Improves Wind Farm Productivity with New Drone-Based Inspections Measure offers new drone-based inspections for wind farms 75% faster turbine inspections Turnkey solution delivers 75% faster turbine inspections & thousands of dollars in improved asset productivity annually Measure, drone, wind farm, inspection, downtime Measure, the largest U.S. provider of drone services to enterprise customers, today announced the addition of turnkey wind farm inspection capabilities to its portfolio of aerial data collection solutions. Wind farm operators can now outsource preventive maintenance inspections to Measure's drone pilots and data analysts for fast, accurate, safe and timely problem identification. The service helps avert critical turbine failures and efficiency losses while reducing repair downtime and its associated revenue impact. The company's drone inspection solution has already been used to successfully examine more than 400 MW of wind farms. The package spans all inspection and reporting functions, including state-of-the-art drone equipment, safe and insured flights by experienced drone pilots, efficient data processing that pinpoints both blade damage and severity, and damage reports and analytics available through a secure online portal. Benefits of Measure's drone-based blade and tower inspections include: 75% faster inspections than other methods, averaging 30 minutes or less per turbine compared to as much as two hours for manned inspections. This reduces excessive time commitments and allows large wind farms to be inspected more frequently. It also reduces labor costs for inspection and frees employees for other tasks. Decreased injury risk in the field, with no threat of falls to inspectors climbing turbine structures or blades. Better defect and damage detection because drones get closer to turbine blades than ground cameras, capturing clearer images. Undetected defects on the blades can result in continuous efficiency losses as high as 6% and associated revenue loss of up to $10,000 annually per turbine.   Maximized turbine availability and revenue generation through early problem detection that helps prevent critical failures and associated downtime for repairs.     Actionable data, including classified damage reports and historical portfolio analysis documenting turbine defects, failure rates and efficiency losses over time. Damage reports can be customized to display only the information needed by blade repair technicians with a few clicks.   "Many wind farms don't inspect their turbines on a preventive maintenance basis, and those that do use ground crews with conventional cameras and zoom lenses. Under both conditions, there is a risk of failing to detect turbine damage or structural defects on blades that can worsen over time and lead to a catastrophic failure," said Harjeet Johal, Measure Vice President of Energy Infrastructure and a 10-year veteran of the renewable energy industry with a PhD in electrical engineering. "Our drone-based inspections provide multiple advantages that can help wind farm operators operate at peak capacity."  "Our global wind portfolio is currently 1,033 MW with 877 MW in the US alone. Knowing the health of our wind assets is essential for us to provide reliable power to our customers," said Adam Brown, US Drone Program Lead at The AES Corporation, a Fortune 200 global power company. "Using drones to inspect the blades and towers makes it safer for our people as they can stay firmly on the ground while still being able to inspect, at scale, hundreds of wind turbines to ensure they have the highest availability." Measure's new wind farm inspection solution expands the company's services to the renewable energy sector, which also include a robust suite of drone inspection solutions for solar plants that was announced in July. The suite includes solar panel inspections, drone-based site overview and maintenance, site shading and terrain analysis, thermal inverter scans, tracker misalignment detection and vegetation management analysis. ...
  • GM’s Ohio and Indiana Plants to Meet Electricity Needs with Wind 09/22/2017
    ... percent renewable energy. GM is buying a total of 200 megawatts of wind energy from Ohio and Illinois wind farms. Once the turbines come online by the end of 2018, renewable energy will power 20 percent of GM’s global electricity use. “Congratulations to GM on this huge progress leap – a fantastic show of commitment at Climate Week NYC, and all achieved in just a year since the company joined RE100,” said Helen Clarkson, CEO, The Climate Group. “GM vocally champions the compelling business case for renewables and shares learnings with other companies. It shows other companies what’s possible.” The new wind deals are enough to meet the electricity needs of Fort Wayne Assembly, Marion Metal Center and Bedford Casting plants in Indiana and Lordstown Assembly, Defiance Casting Operations, Parma Metal Center and Toledo Transmission plants in Ohio. “Technology is driving solutions for mobility and safety in our vehicles, as well as the new energy solutions that build them,” said Gerald Johnson, GMNA vice president of Manufacturing and Labor. “This is the way we do business: offering vehicles that serve our customers’ lifestyle needs while providing sustainable solutions that improve our communities.” GM is leveraging energy efficiency and a mix of onsite and offsite renewable energy solutions to reach its 100 percent renewable energy goal. The company’s four-part strategy acknowledges how its energy and product strategies intersect. As GM works toward advancing zero emissions vehicles, it makes business sense to create a cleaner grid on which to drive them. The company uses EV batteries in tandem with a solar array to power an office building at its Milford Proving Ground in Michigan and is researching the use of fuel cells as energy storage in the future. “We’re helping provide solutions to green the grid through these new renewable energy deals and sharing best practices with other companies so they too can reduce risk and energy costs,” said Rob Threlkeld, GM global manager of renewable energy. “With a pragmatic strategy, companies can turn ambitious renewable energy goals into action and scale quickly.” Altenex, an Edison Energy Company and independent renewable energy advisor, supported GM in the negotiation of the power purchase contracts. GM will be the sole user of the Northwest Ohio Wind farm, a 100 MW project owned by Starwood Energy Group. Swift Current Energy will provide 100 MW from its HillTopper Wind Project in Logan County, Illinois. GM has used renewable energy for decades, saving about $5 million annually as a result. Renewable energy use supports a resilient grid while offering more stable energy pricing. GM made its first wind purchase in 2014 for several of its Mexico operations, followed by deals supporting Texas wind farms for 30 and 50 megawatts of energy. The company uses solar power at 26 facilities and generates electricity from landfill gas at two assembly plants. For more information, visit GM’s sustainability report or environmental blog. ...
  • ACCIONA opens the first plant with storage of wind energy using batteries in Spain, in the region of Navarra 09/22/2017
    ...-president for Business Development of the Government of Navarra / Technical solutions will be applied in the plant for use in commercial wind farms, with the aim of increasing the contribution of renewables to the grid and optimising the management of the energy produced Acciona, Spain, storage, wind, turbine, battery Manu Ayerdi, Vice-president for Business Development of the Government of Navarra, and ACCIONA Energía CEO Rafael Mateo have opened the wind power storage plant with batteries that ACCIONA has put into service in Barásoain (Navarra). It is the first facility of its type incorporated into a grid-connected wind farm in Spain, with the idea of applying technical solutions to increase the penetration of renewable energy-based systems in the transmission system and optimise the management of the energy produced. After visiting the plant, an institutional ceremony was held in which Rafael Mateo referred to the key role that storage will play in a low-carbon transmission system. “Renewables will make up the energy model of the future, and in this irreversible process storage will be a major ally in facilitating the complete – and early – disappearance of fossil fuel-based energies”. Previously, Vice President Ayerdi has stressed the Government of Navarra's commitment to innovation and has valued such an innovative project that falls within the priority areas defined in the Strategy for Intelligent Specialization such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. Battery system The plant in Barásoain is equipped with a storage system that consists of two batteries located in separate containers: one fast-response battery of 1 MW/0.39 MWh (capable of maintaining 1 MW of power for 20 minutes) and other slower-response battery with greater autonomy (0.7 MW/0.7 MWh, maintaining 0.7 MW for 1 hour). Both have Samsung SDI Li-ion technology connected to a 3-MW AW116/300 wind turbine of ACCIONA Windpower (Nordex Group) technology, from which they will capture the energy to be stored. The wind turbine is one of five that make up the Experimental Wind Farm at Barásoain, operated by the company since 2013. The facility has another three units, one for medium voltage cells and analysers, another for inverters/chargers and a transformer (installed by Ingeteam, a company that has worked with us on the project), and a third for control and monitoring equipment. Storage solutions will be applied in the plant aimed at improving the quality of the energy sent to the grid. Other functionalities will also be analysed, such as the provision for ancillary services to the grid – needed to maintain a constant balance between supply and demand – or the postponement of the entry of power into the grid to times when demand is higher, to improve the economic performance of the installation. ACCIONA has developed its own control software for the plant, plus a simulation program that can dimension and optimise storage systems for integration into wind farms, for which it was awarded the ‘Eolo’ Prize for Innovation 2017 by the Spanish Wind Power Companies’ Association. The project has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which manages the Centre for Industrial Technological Development in Spain (CDTI). Future prospects The application of electric storage systems with batteries linked to wind farms and solar power plants is a field with enormous growth potential, thanks to the strong development of renewable energy sources worldwide, lower battery technology costs and improvements in their efficiency. Analysis predict strong growth in storage systems over the coming decades. Just in projects at the utility level, the construction company Navigant forecasts revenues of 18 billion dollars in 2023 against 220 million in 2014. During this period, annual storage capacity in batteries will rise from 360 MW to 14,000 MW. ...
  • Technology advances enable Triton Knoll to remove Intermediate Electrical Compound from final design 09/22/2017
    ... planned IEC There will be no Intermediate Electrical Compound (IEC) for Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Use of latest power flow management techniques will further minimise costs at wind farm / Removal of the Intermediate Electrical Compound is welcomed by Orby Parish Council Triton Knoll, offshore, locals, IEC, technology The team behind the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm have confirmed that they have been able to remove the Intermediate Electrical Compound (IEC) from their final design. The IEC, which was originally planned to be built near Orby in Lincolnshire, would have had a footprint of around 1.8 hectares and was considered necessary to manage power flows along one of the longest, high voltage, underground cable routes in the world. But based on technical modelling and subsequent collaboration between the project team and contractors, the IEC has now been designed out of the electrical system altogether and will not be built. The CfD winning project, marked as one of the best low-cost offshore wind farms in the UK, is being developed as a joint venture between innogy (50%) and Statkraft (50%), with innogy managing the project on behalf of the partnership. Triton Knoll said that removing such large infrastructure has helped further reduce the cost of generating energy from the wind farm, and would also remove a key concern for local people, raised during the planning process. Project director James Cotter said: “We are so pleased to be able to announce this. It’s great news for local people in Orby; the change in design addresses issues raised during the planning process, and will reduce the overall visual and construction impacts of the project in the local area. “It’s also great news for UK energy consumers as the removal of the IEC helps the project make significant cost savings which in turn is helping drive down electricity bills.” Executive Councillor, Economy and Place at Lincolnshire County Council, Colin Davie said: “I warmly welcome the announcement that the visual impact of an Intermediate Electrical Compound at Orby has been removed, and also the continued commitment of Triton Knoll to keep traffic disruption in the area to a minimum. “Lincolnshire County Council will continue to work closely with the Triton Knoll project team and Orby Parish Council to help ensure that this beautiful part of Lincolnshire remains exactly that.  In addition, we will work with the Local Liaison Committees to ensure that the communities between Anderby and Bicker that host this major UK infrastructure project are kept informed of developments.” Locally, the change in design will reduce the level of construction traffic required to build the IEC.  A smaller haul road than originally planned will also now be possible, reducing the width of the cable route between the A158 and IEC site by 6 metres. This design change means that project infrastructure in the proximity of Orby (the works are located 3.5km away from the village) is now expected to be limited to the underground cables and joint bays. Triton Knoll remains committed to ensuring that no construction vehicles will travel through the village of Orby. The innovative thinking behind the redesign is due to the technological expertise and experience that exists within the Triton Knoll project team, coupled with the expertise of its contractors who confirmed the feasibility of removing the IEC during initial detailed design works. Electrical System Lead Engineer Mick Chowns explained: “We utilised our internal expertise and access to advanced power system modelling software, to challenge everything from the cable capacity, design and manufacture, its installation and the dynamics of the power network. This meant we could optimise the power flows without the need for an IEC. Then we applied a collaborative strategy with our contractors, and challenged them to demonstrate that they could deliver such a solution.” ...

    ... plans to use 90 of its latest, ground-breaking 9.5 MW turbines to generate power for the east coast offshore wind farm. Triton Knoll will be one... at preferred supplier stage, the wind farm project will now work with MHI Vestas to maximise and build on the manufacturer’s already strong UK footprint, which includes an industrialisation plan which will safeguard or create 800 UK jobs and investments of over £200m. Triton Knoll Project Director James Cotter said:  “We achieved a successful result at the CfD auction, thanks to a business case that was designed through collaboration with the supply chain and which puts cost reduction, low cost generation and UK content at the forefront of our project. “MHI Vestas is absolutely central to our business plan, which aims to deliver at least 50% UK content over the lifetime of the project, while creating significant value for the UK and energy consumers from the delivery of our wind farm. As one of the world’s leading wind turbine companies, we are delighted to have MHI Vestas on board and look forward to working with them to further maximise innovation and value in all aspects of the project.” An integral part of MHI Vestas UK infrastructure is a state-of-the-art blade factory on the Isle of Wight which opened in 2011. The large-blade competence centre produces the turbine’s 80 metre blades for projects in the UK and throughout Northern Europe. The continued investment in the UK by the company is a significant factor in the selection of MHI Vestas as a preferred supplier to the project. Triton Knoll is a circa 860MW (4) East coast offshore wind farm project, and expects to trigger a capital expenditure investment of around £2billion into much needed UK energy infrastructure. This will enable the delivery of some of the lowest cost energy generation for UK consumers. The project is now progressing towards a financial investment decision likely in 2018 with full onshore construction starting shortly after, and offshore construction starting in 2020. First energy generation could be as early as mid-2021, with the project expecting to begin commissioning in 2021. Regionally, preparations for Triton Knoll’s start of onshore work are well underway, and a full programme of onshore survey works is being completed, while some key early works are being prepared to pave the way for construction later. ...
