More accurate North Sea wind information cuts cost of offshore wind energy

Rubrik: 

ECN, KNMI and Whiffle are working on a new atlas featuring accurate information about North Sea winds for use in wind energy applications. Clarity with regard to the average amount of wind and how often wind speeds reach extreme levels will enable a more accurate estimate of how much wind energy you can generate and how robust wind turbines need to be made to prevent damage or failure. Greater certainty about the potential performance of your wind farm also makes it possible to secure cheaper loans from investors. This reduces the cost of offshore wind energy, a key target set by the Dutch government.

First commercial charter in offshore wind sector

Rubrik: 

The Van Aalst Group with his headquarters in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, can look back on a very successful debut in the North Sea wind sector with the implementation of the project using the unique SafeWay motion compensated offshore access system. This follows the earlier operations in the oil and gas sector with successful transfers done at offshore platforms of Total E&P Netherlands BV and Oranje Nassau Energy (ONE). The design for transferring personnel and cargo safely and efficiently from an offshore vessel to a structure is so revolutionary that SafeWay believes the gangway will be a ‘game changer’ in the offshore oil, gas, wind and renewables industries. The unique 28 metre long walk-to-work Seagull-type is able to compensate for significant wave heights of up to 3,5 metre on a standard 75-metre long PSV hull, resulting in an operating window that can be significantly higher than other available systems in the market.

Wind Turbine Maintenance Market Predicted Double-Digit Growth Rate by 2021

Increasing demand foThe wind turbine is the device which converts kinetic energy of wind to electrical energy. It is majorly used for power generation. Small turbines are used for battery charging, traffic signals, auxiliary power for boats. Larger turbines generally used to a domestic power supply. Wind is a renewable, clean and free source of energy. A wind turbine can be the use of one of the alternatives for power generation.r power around the world is expected to drive the wind turbine maintenance market across the globe.
