The Danish parliament will discuss the expansion of the Høvsøre and Østerild wind turbine test centers on 5 April, according to DTU Wind Energy.
DTU Wind Energy and Vattenfall are working together to investigate how offshore wind farms should be positioned so they do not “steal” the wind from each other.
Denmark’s DTU Wind Energy and Norway’s Sintef Energi A/S have signed a Memorandum of Understanding as the first step towards a strong partnership on offshore wind energy R&D.
The Carbon Trust has announced Wind Farm Control Trials (WFCT), a new project designed to demonstrate how effective implementation of control strategies can reduce the cost of offshore wind.
German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has partnered with EnBW and R&D institutes such as DTU, ECN and Fraunhofer IWES to jointly develop a 10MW+ offshore wind turbine.
DNV GL has published a position paper on artificial intelligence (AI) in solar and wind energy industries, saying AI will increasingly automate operations over the next several years and boost efficiencies across the renewable energy sector.
The TetraSpar floating wind foundation, brought forward by Henrik Stiesdal – a Danish inventor and former Chief Technology Officer at Siemens Wind Power – has won a DKK 9 million grant (approx. EUR 1.2 million).
On 9 September, a new visitor centre was opened in Østerild, where some of the largest offshore wind turbines are being tested. The visitor centre will open the doors annually for up to 50,000 visitors, according to the Danish Wind Energy Association (DWIA).
DONG Energy has completed the decommissioning of the world’s first offshore wind farm, the 4.95MW Vindeby built in the Danish Baltic Sea near the island of Lolland in 1991.
DTU Wind Energy, DHI and Stiesdal Offshore Technology A/S are currently testing Henrik Stiesdal’s TetraSpar floating foundation concept in the DHI offshore wave basin.
Researchers from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have developed a simple method for monitoring wind turbines using the symmetry created by the wind turbine when the blades rotate.
Danish Government has approved the expansion of the national wind turbine test centres in Østerild and Høvsøre. Four new sites will be added, facilitating testing of turbines of up to 330 metres.
DONG Energy has started dismantling the world’s first offshore wind farm, the 4.95MW Vindeby located in the Danish Baltic Sea near the island of Lolland.
The Danish government is expected to propose new test sites for large wind turbines before Christmas, according to Danish media. The government will thus be following up on the work that took place in 2011, when the test centre comprising seven sites was established in Østerild. Since then, all the sites have been sold or rented, […]
Wind energy can be converted into methane gas and stored in a natural gas grid, eliminating carbon emissions from biogas plants which use this method, a research project carried out by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Lemvig Biogas Plant has shown. Through the MeGA-StoRE project (Methane Gas Storage for Renewable Energy), DTU and Lemvig Biogas […]
Oldbaum Services has deployed two 3D WINDCUBE 400S Scanning LiDARs as part of the wind resource assessment campaigns the company is currently conducting at two French offshore wind sites. It is the first time that such long range scanning systems are deployed for operational campaigns, after having completed third party validation tests with DTU and […]
The following article, which discusses the growing use of drones in the wind energy industry, is published on Offshore WIND with permission from the author, Pieter Jan Jordaens, Business Development & Innovation manager at OWI-Lab, an offshore wind R&D initiative coordinated by Sirris, a collective centre of Belgian technological industry. More significant role for drones in wind turbine inspections Thanks […]
