  • ESS Clean Up On Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm Project 11/18/2017
    ...ESS Clean Up On Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm Project ESS Finishes Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm Project ahead of Schedule ESS technical director... a seabed clearance and trenching scope on the Wikinger offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea for the Prysmian Group. The campaign over 116 days deployed ESS’s SCAR1 Seabed System and dealt with extremely varied seabed and shallow soil conditions. The route preparation phase involved thousands of boulders being cleared over a total distance of 34km covering 45 inter array routes, followed by pre-cut trenching over a length of 83km in single and multi-pass modes. ESS was awarded the contract by Prysmian Group, one of the key contractors for the Iberdrola-owned Wikinger offshore wind farm, the 70-turbine 350MW facility, located off the German coast, which will generate enough energy to power more than 350,000 homes. ESS technical director, Michael Cowie, said: “We are pleased to have successfully completed another seabed clearance and trenching work scope and look forward to supporting Prysmian Group on further offshore wind projects. Our SCAR Seabed System is now a well-proven and versatile technology which is ideally suited to the requirements of the offshore wind sector. The Wikinger project adds another successful campaign to our credentials as a provider of cost-effective cable protection services which minimises disruption to the critical path of the overall project.” The Wikinger offshore wind farm is an Iberdrola flagship project which represents a €1,400 million investment. Construction is well under way and Iberdrola has successfully installed 70 wind turbines on the open sea after laying the foundations, cables and installing the substation of the large-scale offshore complex. David Rayner, Project Manager of Prysmian Group, said: “The cable laying phase of the Wikinger offshore wind farm project was completed ahead of schedule which is quite uncommon in the offshore wind market. This highlights our ability to manage turnkey inter-array projects and we appreciate the valuable contribution made by Ecosse Subsea Systems in achieving this important milestone as we progress towards project completion.” ...

    Onshore Giant Up in the North 11/17/2017
    ... years a new cluster of onshore wind farms will be built high up in northern Sweden - the largest one in Europe. GE Renewables, Svewind, Sweden, cluster, onshore, MW, GW, WindEruope, Giles Dickson, PPA Water and nuclear power in particular still account for the largest share of Sweden's energy mix at present - despite the fact that the decision to phase out nuclear power was already taken at the end of the 1970s. After this decision had been reversed in the meantime and the performance of the remaining three nuclear power plants had been continuously increased, Sweden's state-owned energy company Vattenfall took the matter seriously in 2015 and finally decided to phase out - at least for the time being. At the same time, the government announced that it intended to entirely phase out all fossil fuels in all consumption sectors, i.e. electricity, heat and transport. By 2040, the Swedes want to obtain their entire energy supply from renewable sources. To this end, onshore wind energy in particular is now being massively expanded. The planned Markbyden wind farm, which will combine a cluster of smaller wind farms into an onshore giant with an output of up to 4 gigawatts in three phases, is part of this. The Swedish project developer Svewind has been working on the project for more than 15 years and the first phase of it, Markbyden ETT (= One), has now been started. Europe's largest onshore wind farm with 650 megawatts is being built on site. Wolfgang Kropp, CEO of Svevind, commented: "Having worked on the development of the Markbygden cluster of wind farm projects since 2002, Svevind is very excited to see this partnership with GE Renewables, GE Energy Financial Services and the Green Investment Group come to fruition." German company 4initia GmbH and Fieldstone completed the sale of the project to the partners at the beginning of November. A European banking consortium, including the HSH Nordbank, is contributing to the financing. The project in northern Sweden is a logistical challenge. Although there are hardly any residents who could delay the construction of the cluster due to protest actions, the site is also located far away from the big cities with their logistics hubs. Next largest town is Piteå, with a population of almost 20,000. Subarctic climate: Winters are long and cold. (Image: Svewind) In addition, the climate is harsh and the winters are long. GE Renewable Energy will supply 179 of their 3.6 MW turbines with 137 meter rotors, a turbine ideally suited for the project site's wind speeds and climate. The turbine blades will be equipped with an innovative ice mitigation system by LM Wind Power, ensuring a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. In addition, GE will be responsible for maintenance for the next 20 years. Meanwhile, construction work has begun on the huge wind field. For this purpose, a separate gravel and a concrete plant was built, and 130 km of internal wind farm paths are being built on site, as reported by 4initia. This should make it possible to have up to 1,101 wind turbines installed once the entire cluster has been completed. Markbyden ETT alone increases the share of wind energy in Sweden's electricity mix by 12.5 percent. The partners have already found a buyer for their electricity: Norsk Hydro, one of the world's largest aluminium producers, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) to supply its aluminium smelters in Norway with energy. This is the largest contract of its kind in the world to date. Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope, the European wind energy association, recently expressed his support for this type of contract: “These latest PPA deals are a significant vote of confidence in the PPA model. PPAs all started with the ICT sector sourcing renewables for their data centres. Now energy-intensive manufacturing sectors such as aluminium are buying wind. European industry has signed 2.6 GW of PPA deals in wind energy over the past four years, 1.3 GW of which were in 2017 alone. PPAs provide clean, reliable and competitive power for the corporate off-taker. What these deals also show is that countries like Sweden, the Netherlands and Norway that position themselves as ‘PPA-friendly’ are increasingly attracting major industrial investments on the back of that. We hope major countries like Germany, France, Italy and Spain, will take note and change regulations in a way that will allow corporates to procure more green electricity.” Giles Dickson calls for more courage from European companies to get involved in PPAs. (Picture: WindEurope) Wind energy has meanwhile established itself as the cheapest form of the new electricity generation. It is therefore not surprising that the recently published IEA ( International Energy Agency) World Energy Outlook shows that wind is well on the way to becoming Europe's leading power source shortly after 2030. In order to achieve this, however, individual national governments must ensure a legal framework in the long term, in particular through ambitious national energy and climate action plans that provide clarity on volumes and auctions after 2020. ...

    84% of people surveyed in favour of Wind Energy use in Ireland 11/16/2017
    ... to power their home with renewable energy over fossil fuels 45% of people surveyed would be in favour of a wind farm development in their area 25% said they were likely to consider visiting a wind farm in the future Adam Ledwith, Head of Communications and Public Affairs with IWEA said “Wind is the world’s fastest growing renewable energy source and this survey clearly shows that the development of wind power is welcome and communities in Ireland want clean, renewable energy sources, including wind, to play an active role in powering Ireland’s future. In Ireland we currently have 200 operational wind farms which regularly power 60% of Ireland’s electricity needs. This is clean, reliable indigenous energy source generated in a country that otherwise relies on imports for 88% of its energy needs at an estimated cost of €15 million a day. “The survey also shows that there is an overwhelming majority of people who would prefer to power their homes with renewable energy rather fossil fuels.  Renewable Energy is critical to Ireland’s long term economic growth and energy security and wind can rightfully play a central role in this. Ireland has a huge natural advantage to develop wind and other renewable energy sources, including solar and biomass, and we have the capability and capacity to be the 21st-century clean energy innovator of Europe.” The survey also captured the perceived benefits of wind power among the public. Of those surveyed three quarters selected good for the environment and reduced CO2 emissions while fewer people, just over two in three, cited cheaper electricity.  Mr. Ledwith continued “It is absolutely clear from this survey that the environment and air quality is front and centre of people’s mind when they consider the benefits of wind.  Four deaths per day in Ireland can be attributed to air pollution and wind power offers a clean source of renewable energy that produces no air or water pollution. Our energy use relates directly to the quality of air we breathe daily, and we believe the increased use of renewable energy will continue to off-set harmful emissions from fossil fuels, an operational 50MW wind farm off-sets the emission of harmful greenhouse gases, such as 74,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.” ...

    Repowering Europe's Highest Wind Farm 11/15/2017
    ...Repowering Europe's Highest Wind Farm Vestas is to repower the Tauernwindfarm in Austria - a task that requires special solutions Vestas, repowering,Austria, wind farm, ImWind The Tauernwindfarm is located in the Styrian Niedere Tauern massif at an altitude of 1,900 metres above sea level. This makes it one of the highest wind farms in Europe. Currently, the wind farm consists of 13 wind turbines with a capacity of 22.75 megawatts. After the repowering has been completed, nine V112-3.45 MW turbines will be left in place of the existing V66-1750kW turbines, which will significantly increase the capacity of the wind farm. A wind power project in such an environment is challenging, not only with regard to the turbulences caused by the mountains, but also with regard to the logistical challenges of the remote location. “Vestas has a highly versatile product portfolio that made it possible to develop a solution that is customised to the specific characteristics of our wind farm in this really unique location”, says Johannes Trauttmansdorff of wind farm owner ImWind. ”The tailor-made solution enables us to achieve the lowest cost of energy at the Tauernwindpark; to us, one of the most important aspects of this project.” ...
