    Russia Will Invest in Renewables Next Year 10/12/2017
    ... of almost 1 GW are to take place in Russia Russia, wind energy, renewables, auction, tender, local content This was announced by the First Deputy Energy Minister Alexei Texler during the Russian Energy Week. “57 MW – by the sun, 899 MW – in the wind (wind farm), “he said, according to the Russian Wind Energy Association RAWI. When asked whether the entire capacity is to be put out to tender as early as 2018, he replied: "Probably yes." A first call for tenders was already held this year: In the years 2018 to 2022, wind farms with a capacity of 1,651 MW are to be built. The Russian Renewable Energy Act provides for the construction of wind farms with a capacity of 3,350 MW by 2024, with 65 percent of the parts required having to be produced within the country according to a' local content' regulation. ...

  • Newcastle yard awarded key contract for offshore wind farm 01/31/2017
    ... that with expanding our production platform with this new facility in Newcastle upon Tyne, we not only added local content in the UK and an additional production capacity within the Smulders group, but also have created an excellent base close to the renewable and offshore market within the UK. “In particular, for the Aberdeen Bay project, we are going to use this yard for the fabrication of the lower parts of the jacket structures and to do the final assembly of all associated parts. This has been made possible by means of the necessary investments in lifting facilities which we did on our yard.” North Tyneside MP Mary Glindon, who actively supported OGN’s call to Government to generate more UK content in offshore wind developments, said: “I’m really pleased Smulders has shown confidence in North Tyneside and invested in the former OGN site in Wallsend. The fact that they have already won a contract to provide employment is indeed good news. I look forward to working with them in the future, in any way I can, to help secure work in my constituency.” Smulders was awarded the EOWDC contract by Boskalis which is the overall Tier 1 supplier of the scheme’s offshore balance of plant (BoP) work for the construction and installation (EPCI) of the offshore infrastructure including the foundations and cabling. Taco Terpstra, project director at Boskalis, said: “The final assembly of the complete foundations at the site in Newcastle upon Tyne allows Boskalis a much shorter sailing distance from the load-out location to the site offshore with all benefits for our logistics chain.” Smulders’ contract for the EOWDC is the latest in a series that have been awarded over the past six months for the pioneering project with a considerable extent of UK supply chain success. Other Tier 1 contractors appointed were MHI Vestas to supply the turbines and which is fabricating the 80m blades at its Isle of Wight factory while London-headquartered J Murphy and Sons Limited is providing the onshore substation and associated cabling work. Hartlepool-based JDR is to deliver the 66kV inter-array and export cables, representing the first deployment of this innovative technology, and Babcock in Rosyth is deploying its floating LiDAR (light detection and ranging) technology to provide offshore wind data to the EOWDC. Vattenfall has also signed leases totalling 24 years with Aberdeen Harbour Board, becoming the first offshore wind operator to invest long term in the port’s facilities. ...

    ... keen to maximise the local content of their developments to increase local support and comply with planning requirements. “Offshore wind needs the skills of the offshore oil and gas supply chain,” added Valpy. “and oil and gas companies can generate much need new revenue from offshore renewables.” Valpy was keen to point out that there are some significant differences between offshore wind and offshore oil and gas. In particular, the procurement, working and investment strategies can be very different between the sectors. “Much of our current work with Oil and gas companies,” said Valpy, “is helping them understand the size of the opportunity in offshore wind and how best they can enter the supply chain”.   Such understanding, analysis and advice can help many UK companies start doing business much quicker than trying to go it alone. There is a significant opportunity in offshore wind for UK companies that can demonstrate their value proposition and long-term commitment to offshore wind customers. They will then help achieve the UK industry’s strategic intention of having over 50% local content by 2020. ...
