Auch im Offshoregeschäft: Hyundai Heavy Industries has completed installation of a 5.5MW offshore wind turbine prototype at the Kimnyeong wind farm off Jeju Island in South Korea.
The company said it will start a test run on the turbine (pictured), which has a hub height of 100 metres and a rotor diameter of 140 metres, from March for certification within this year.
HHI said the prototype is designed to withstand the ?strong wind of 62.5 metres per second and to be protected from corrosion caused by the sea water?.
An official for the company added that it intended to ?accelerate (its) marketing campaign overseas?.
Vestas V164 prefered turbine:
Vestas' V164- 8.0 MW turbine preferred for DONG Energy?s Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm
DONG Energy has conducted a competitive tender for the supply of turbines, where Vestas Wind Systems as a result of the tender has been chosen as the preferred supplier with a proposal to deliver the V164-8.0 MW turbine for the Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm.
The choice of Vestas is subject to the windfarm being awarded a Contract for Difference under the EMR FID-enabling regime, and to the parties agreeing on a detailed supply agreement which is expected to be signed later this year.
With the V164-8.0 MW turbine Vestas Wind Systems has increased the competition in the multi-MW offshore turbine market. DONG Energy welcomes the competition as this will be an important factor in DONG Energy's ambition to reduce the cost of electricity for offshore wind by 35-40 per cent for projects sanctioned in 2020. http://www.dongenergy.com/EN/Media/Newsroom/News/...horeWindFarm.aspx
Ireland?s Mainstream Renewable Power (MRP) has lined up Siemens as turbine supplier to its 450MW Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm in Scottish waters. MRP plans to use SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines at the project, it said as it announced preferred suppliers.
The company also named a consortium of Technip and Marubeni as preferred supplier of balance of plant EPC services.
Marubeni brings with it Seajacks, the Great Yarmouth-based offshore installation specialist, notes Adam Bruce, MRP?s global head of corporate affairs.
?This gives you an indication of the kind of alliance we?d like to bring together?, comprising both UK and non-UK players, Bruce tells Recharge.
Goldwind 6MW turbine installed 18 February 2014 by Mao Pengfei
CHINA: Goldwind has installed the prototype of its 6MW offshore turbine, over six months beyond the company's original development schedule.
The Goldwind 6MW nacelle in the Dafeng factory The Goldwind 6MW nacelle in the Dafeng factory Goldwind said the 6MW machine is now operating at a test site in Dafeng, Jiangsu Province on the country's eastern coast.
Originally, the company had planned to have the design for the new turbine finished in 2011 and a prototype operating by the middle of 2012, but numerous delays pushed back the installation date.
Last March, Goldwind decided to accelerate the pace of the 6MW turbine development. The company closed its MW-level turbine development company in Nanjing city, to shift all of the CNY 26.9 million ($4.3 million) funding to its Dafeng manufacturing base, tasked with building the larger turbine. http://www.windpoweroffshore.com/article/1281373/...turbine-installed

London Array phase two a no-go , February 19 2014 The consortium behind the UK?s London Array has decided it will not proceed with the development of phase two of the offshore wind farm in the Thames Estuary.
A statement said the decision follows a review by the consortium members of their respective portfolios, the technical challenges and the environmental uncertainties surrounding the site, which requires a wait of at least three years until phase two?s potential impact on birds could be completely assessed. http://www.rechargenews.com/wind/offshore/article1352651.ece
February 19 2014 Consortium Forewind has downscaled earlier targets of the capacity potential of its giant Dogger Bank wind power mega-development, after resource assessments led to the decision to drop two of the eight gigawatt-plus projects in the UK offshore zone....The consortium ? made up of RWE, SSE, Statoil and Statkraft ? said the zone?s remaining six 1.2GW wind farms would together be ?better aligned? with the UK government's aspirations for offshore wind deployment of 8-15GW by 2020.

First Foundation Installed at Westermost Rough GeoSea Innovation has kicked off offshore construction at Dong Energie?s Westermost Rough offshore wind farm by installing the first of 35 foundations. The Innovation carried out the first five foundations to the site from the load out port in Aalborg, Denmark. The monopiles ? which have a diameter of 6.5 metres and a weight of up to 800 tons ? provide the base for the 6 megawatt (MW) turbines which will be installed later this year. http://www.offshorewind.biz/2014/02/25/...talled-at-westermost-rough/
Offshore Wind Turbines Can Reduce Impact of Deadly Hurricanes Like Sandy and Katrina By Hannah Osborne , February 26, 2014 12:40 PM GMT 38 6 + Wind turbines are seen at Thanet Offshore Wind Farm off the Kent Wind turbines are seen at Thanet Offshore Wind Farm off the KentReuters Offshore wind turbines are able to reduce the impact of deadly hurricanes, such as Sandy and Katrina, by reducing wind speeds, wave heights and flood-causing storm surges, researchers have said.
Published by Nature Climate Change, a research team from the University of Delaware and Stanford University have shown for the first time that wind farms have the ability to weaken hurricanes and buffer damage to coastal cities during hurricanes.
Cristina Archer, co-author of the study, said: "The little turbines can fight back the beast ... This is a totally different way to think about the interaction of the atmosphere and wind turbines. We could actually take advantage of these interactions to protect coastal communities." http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/...act-hurricanes-like-sandy-katrina-1437993

Contact Us RELATED Dong 'more confident' in UK offshore IN DEPTH: Goldman goes green By Karin Jensen in Copenhagen Friday, February 28 2014 US investment giant Goldman Sachs has told suppliers to Dong Energy that it expects them to help deliver big cost reductions in the offshore wind sector ? or it is ready to tap into source new sources in Asia who will. Martin Hintze, Goldman Sachs? newly-installed representative on the board of the world?s biggest offshore wind developer, told newspaper Borsen that it is fully behind Dong?s stated aim to drive costs down by up to 40% by 2020.
Speaking a month after Goldman finalised its purchase of a 19% stake in Dong for DKr8bn ($1.5bn) ? amid controversy in Denmark ? Hintze told the Danish daily that cost reduction is a top priority for the investment bank. ?That?s what we bought into as an investor,? he said. http://www.rechargenews.com/wind/offshore/article1353846.ece
Na dann mal los....Kosten runterschrauben,und die Offshorebranche wird explodieren(Ist ja jetzt schon auf dem besten Weg)... Einige Hersteller haben ja schon die Bücher rappelvoll die nächsten Jahre....
Some 25km off the storm-scoured coast of northeast Scotland, where the seafloor drops away from the continental shelf into the sub-zero darkness of the North Sea deeps, Norwegian energy giant Statoil is planning a world first: an array of floating wind turbines.
The five-machine 30MW Buchan Deep project, set to be anchored off Peterhead by 2016 in more than 100 metres of water, could be a commercial launchpad for a sector that saw its maiden full-scale prototype ? the developer?s own Hywind 1 ? switched on less than five years ago off western Norway.
For if the trials of the grid-connected quintet ? consisting of bottle-shaped spar-buoy foundations topped with 6MW turbines ? are successful, it would clear the way for Statoil to begin serial production for wind developments of over 500MW by 2020.
?Buchan Deep has a lot to recommend it as a demonstration site [for the second-generation Hywind],? states Statoil?s head of floating wind business development, Trine Ingebjørg Ulla. ?It is quite close to shore, so we can get out to [the array] and back relatively easily, the metocean conditions and water depths suited us, it has a [suitable onshore] grid connection ? and there is a well-developed supply chain from the offshore oil industry in the area.
?And having the very large turbine size that is now available, we see a tremendous reduction in cost ? by two thirds per megawatt to begin with ? and more cost-reduction possible,? she says, adding that floating wind turbines could soon be cost-competitive with those on fixed foundations.
?This is a big leap forward. Buchan Deep is to reduce risk, to demonstrate that the costs are sufficiently reduced before starting commercial production. This is where the Hywind proves that it is more than a clever technology, that it is one that can be commercially viable.?

.....We turn to less positive developments, specifically Iberdrola's decision late last year to stop work on the 1.8GW Argyll Array offshore project off Scotland's west coast. That announcement came only a few days after RWE Innogy dropped its 1.2GW Atlantic Array proposal and shortly before the same company scaled-down its Triton Knoll plans. The UK may be the world's leader in offshore wind, but the cancellation and downsizing of so many projects in quick succession made the outlook for future growth look anything but optimistic.
"The big issue with Argyll Array was the volcanic rock on the seabed," says Cole. "It was simply impossible to drive piles into it. The sea there is very energetic and the conditions are very challenging. All current foundation techniques were going to be a struggle.Then we discovered that the area had very large numbers of basking sharks, much more than we originally thought. We had to be environmentally responsible and we had to consider the needs of local stakeholders."
Siemens baut Rotorblatt-Fabrik in Großbritannien ? Deutsche Offshore-Branche enttäuscht Hamburg ? Siemens investiert mehr als 190 Mio. Euro in neue Offshore-Produktionsstätten in Großbritannien. Geplant ist eine Fertigung von Rotorblättern für Offshore-Windturbinen der Sechs-Megawatt-Klasse sowie ein neues Logistik- und Service-Zentrum in Hull. 1.000 neue Arbeitsplätze sollen entstehen.
Der britische Premierminister David Cameron und Michael Süß, Mitglied des Vorstands der Siemens AG und CEO des Sektors Energy, bekräftigen das gemeinsame Engagement am Dienstagnachmittag in Hull. Dass der deutsche Konzern sich für eine Produktionsstätte außerhalb von Deutschland entschieden hat, sieht die deutsche Offshore-Branche als Folge der unsteten und kurzatmigen Energiepolitik seitens der Bundesregierung. http://www.iwr.de/
DONG Energy"s offshore wind farms have set a new record in January ? and then again in February.
With a capacity factor of 70% in January and 71% in February, DONG Energy"s fleet of offshore wind turbines had the highest production ever. Even though the winter months usually are more windy than the summer-months, the figures are extraordinary and it falls back on the work done by the DONG Energy employees working offshore.
