Newbuild Walk-to-Work Vessel VOS Stone Finds Work at German Offshore Wind Farm

September 13, 2017 by gCaptain

SNIPPET:

The state-of-the-art vessel is a subsea-support walk-to-work vessel. Its sister vessel VOS Start is currently employed at the Walney Extension Offshore Wind Farm in the Irish Sea. Both vessels have been purpose-built to support operations in the renewable energy industry and walk-to-work projects in the oil and gas industry.

Like with the VOS Start, VOS Stone will be fitted with motion-compensated offshore gangway and a 50T active-heave-compensated crane. The vessel can provide accommodation for up to 60 personnel, not including crew.

GE Targets Low-to-Medium Wind Speed With Newest 4.8-MW Wind Turbine

September 12, 2017

By Renewable Energy World Editors

         
GE Renewable Energy this week unveiled its new 4.8–158 onshore wind turbine, the company’s largest high efficiency turbine to date.

The wind turbine is equipped with a 158-meter rotor and a range of tip heights up to 240 meters. The combination of a larger rotor and tall towers enables the turbine to take advantage of higher wind speeds and produce more energy, said the company.

According to GE the turbine’s 77-meter high-tech carbon blades, improved loads and controls, and taller, more cost-effective towers were developed thanks to close partnerships with LM Wind Power, Blade Dynamics and GE’s Global Research Center. The blades also feature one of the industry’s smallest Bolt Circle Diameters, keeping manufacturing and logistical costs to a minimum, said GE.

The company said that it took input from more than 30 customers around the world and also leveraged the intelligence gathered from across the company’s 30,000+ fleet of wind turbines to create this new generation asset.

Pete McCabe, President & CEO of GE’s Onshore Wind Business said, “The 4.8–158 design…is well suited for low-to-medium wind speed regions worldwide — examples include Germany, Turkey and Australia — as well as for mechanisms like auctions, as countries around the world are putting an increased emphasis on lowering the cost of energy.”

Agelbert NOTE: If the following news meant that automobile manufacturers where going make more EVs with 100% renewable energy electricity, I would consider it progress. Unfortunately, these brain dead car executives will use the wind power mostly to make more polluting gas guzzlers.   Go figure.   ::)

GM to run Ohio, Indiana factories with 100 percent wind power

SEPTEMBER 21, 2017 by  GREG ALVAREZ

SNIPPET:

Last week I predicted it wouldn’t be long before we had more news on Fortune 500 wind power purchases. Well, a whole seven days passed before there were new deals to report.  ;D

WIND POWERS THE OPEN ROAD FOR GM

GM just announced wind power purchase agreements with projects in Ohio and Illinois. The automaker is buying enough wind-generated electricity to power the Ohio and Indiana factories that build the Chevrolet Cruze and Silverado, and the GMC Sierra.

“Technology is driving solutions for mobility and safety in our vehicles, as well as the new energy solutions that build them,” said Gerald Johnson, GMNA vice president of Manufacturing and Labor. “This is the way we do business: offering vehicles that serve our customers’ lifestyle needs while providing sustainable solutions that improve our communities.”

GM already has plans to soon power 100 percent of its Arlington, Texas, plant using wind, where over 100,000 SUV’s are made every year. Wind’s low cost, down 66 percent since 2009, has made it an attractive option for GM as it works toward meeting its 100 percent renewable goal.

OTHER BUYERS JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON

GM isn’t alone in the headlines this week, however. Kimberly-Clark, maker of products like Kleenex and Huggies, also announced a new wind deal in recent days. The company will soon source about 33 percent of its electricity needs from wind farms in Oklahoma and Texas.

“It’s a powerful demonstration of sustainability initiatives having both great environmental and business benefits,” said Lisa Morden, Kimberly-Clark’s global head of sustainability.
