Data centre in a wind turbine unit wins award

Data centre in a wind turbine unit wins award
Constructing power-intensive data centres where electricity can be obtained on a climate-friendly basis, for example in wind turbines, has been the idea for ‘WindCORES’ for a couple of years now. A new project called ‘WindCORES++’, which was developed in cooperation between WestfalenWIND IT, Rittal and SICP, won in Category 1 of the German Data Centre Award in the ‘Ideas and research in relation to data centres’ for cloud hosting.

Major power export cable contract for wind farm won

Major power export cable contract for wind farm won
Today many nations are harnessing renewable energy sources with the aim of counteracting climate change. In 2017, Europe installed 16.8GW of additional wind power capacity making it the second largest form of power generation in the region. One of the latest most prominent wind power developments is Ørsted’s Hornsea two project.

Multimillion-euro contract for Wind Farms off the Netherlands Coast

Multimillion-euro contract for Wind Farms off the Netherlands Coast
The Netherlands is planning to increase its use of renewable energy to represent 14% of its energy mix in 2020 and 16% in 2023. Offshore wind energy is a vital element in this transition and a major milestone will be reached in 2020 when Ørsted brings its Borssele 1 and 2 wind farms online. Nexans is playing a key role in the project by supplying a total length of between 170 km and 190 km of subsea cable rated at a maximum operating voltage of 72.5 kilovolt (kV) to provide the inter-array connections between the turbines and the offshore substations in the framework of a multimillion-euro contract.

Keeping wind turbines cool

Keeping wind turbines cool
Wind turbine manufacturers face a continuous battle to improve output and efficiency, both of which are affected by heat generation and the ability to keep the equipment in the nacelle at optimum temperature. While several solutions are available, some manufacturers are looking for a simple approach that will deliver performance while minimising the complexity of maintenance procedures for operators.

Cables supplied for 66KV offshore wind farms

Cables supplied for 66KV offshore wind farms
As offshore wind turbines continue to grow in size and power output, wind farm developers and operators are preparing to switch over to 66 kilovolt (kV) technology. This is because operating at the higher voltage offers important lifecycle cost-efficiency benefits such as the possibility of reducing the number of substations required as well as reducing the length of cables that need to be installed.
