BayWa r.e.divests French wind farms

BayWa r.e.divests French wind farms
BayWa r.e. has sold Eole de Plan Fleury and Les Renardières wind farms to Innergex Renewable Energy , a developer, owner and operator of renewable energy projects, and Régime de rentes du Mouvement Desjardins, a Québec-based private pension plan. This follows the sale of the Montjean Theil-Rabier wind farm to the same partners last year and continues the successful relationship between the companies.

Bishopthorpe windfarm sold to renewable infrastructure fund

Bishopthorpe windfarm sold to renewable infrastructure fund
BayWa r.e. has sold its 16.4MW Bishopthorpe windfarm to the renewable infrastructure fund Greencoat UK Wind, managed by Greencoat Capital. The windfarm, located South of Grimsby, was originally acquired by BayWa r.e. following a competitive tender. Delivered to a strict timeline, there was significant interest in the sale. BayWa r.e’s new dedicated UK service business, BayWa r.e. Operation Services, is continuing to provide ongoing operations management.

Solar and wind power reinvented: latest news

Virtually all of the grid capacity being added in the world is renewable or nuclear nowadays. Solar and wind met 10% of electricity demand in March 2017 in the USA. Hydro electricity from a wet spring season on the West Coast, which alone provided more than 10% of the nation’s electricity, as well as biomass and geothermal power, all renewable energy sources combined met 24% of electric demand in March and if we add in the 20% we get from nuclear power, 44% of electricity demand in the USA was met with non-fossil fuel electrons.

REG Power Management lift construction safety standards

REG Power Management lift construction safety standards
  REG Power Management (RPM) is deploying ZephIR Lidar systems to achieve the highest levels of safety within their wind farm constructions projects. The device measures wind speed and direction from 10-200m to advise and assist with the planned and ongoing construction activities at a site.

EU funded project develops future offshore DC grids

EU funded project develops future offshore DC grids
Having made some important advances towards future offshore DC grids, a European Union-funded project that has trained the next-gen of offshore wind experts has just concluded. ‘MEDOW’ was an ‘Initial Training Network’ funded by the EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme. It aimed to provide a ‘training through research’ approach to the exciting new field of multi-terminal DC grids for offshore wind power by appointing and training 17 promising young power systems engineers.

A change is in the air for offshore wind turbines

A change is in the air for offshore wind turbines
A new offshore windfarm capable of meeting the electricity demand of well over 230,000 homes, Burbo Bank Extension, was officially opened at a ceremony in Liverpool on 17th May. The wind farm is a joint venture between DONG Energy (50%) and its partners PKA (25%) and KIRKBI A/S, parent company of the LEGO Group (25%). It is the first offshore wind farm in the world to make commercial use of the MHI Vestas V164-8.0 MW wind turbines.

Using drones to harness the power of the wind

Using drones to harness the power of the wind
A new report has been published by IDTechEx Research into the feasibility of Airborne Wind Energy (AWE), a system that uses UAVs, or drones, to capture wind energy at heights higher than standard wind turbines. The concept began with kites flying in a figure of eight trajectory to create electricity from heights where winds are much stronger and more consistent than those tapped by conventional wind turbines on land or even offshore.

Solution provides effective wind measurements in complex terrain

Solution provides effective wind measurements in complex terrain
In order to produce a packaged 'white box' solution, where the different stages of processing are clearly visible to the user, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) provider Meteodyn has collaborated with wind lidar company ZephIR Lidar. This addresses the challenge of taking lidar wind measurements in complex terrain. Data from lidars are now widely considered as being bankable for use in wind resource assessment campaigns.

GMS UK wins contract for world’s biggest wind farm

GMS UK wins contract for world’s biggest wind farm
In order to provide offshore accommodation for workers on what will be the world’s biggest offshore wind farm, DONG Energy has chosen Gulf Marine Services UK, based in Aberdeen. Hornsea Project One will be capable of meeting the electricity needs of well over one million homes. It will be located 120km off the Yorkshire coast, so when work begins offshore in 2018, the team will stay out at sea rather than make the journey back and forth each day.
