UK-based Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd (MTE) has won a contract by EEW OSB to fabricate 20 suspended internal support structures (SIPS) for the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm, which marks the company’s second contract for Ørsted’s project.
German investment company Aquila Capital has launched a EUR 750 million fund primarily seeking investments in onshore and offshore wind power, photovoltaics, hydropower, electricity grids and heat networks, as well as energy storage with an emphasis on greenfield projects.
Knowledge of impact forces is an important aspect in the design and subsequent operation of offshore wind turbines. Offshore wind turbines are typically monopile or space frame structures. In addition to their basic operational loading, these structures are designed to withstand the environmental loads experienced offshore from waves, currents and wind.
The long term employment prospects within the offshore wind industry lie with the Operation and Maintenance work that will keep the turbines producing electricity for the next 20+ years. Hundreds of men and women will be climbing up the towers from boats, or down from helicopter dropping areas, into the nacelles for a long time […]
Dong Energy has selected Danish contracting and engineering company Semco Maritime to establish a new offshore telecommunication infrastructure in the North Sea.
