By Mr. Javier Lanfranchi – Sales Manager – Faccin SPA Nobody can deny that the demand of more energy is increasing on a global scale. Over the last two decades we’ve seen different solutions to tackle this issue where renewable energy stands out mainly because of the need to reduce the impact fuels have in […]
SeaRoc Group has launched a new, fully portable communications solution that allows technicians to communicate from within a wind turbine. As radio signals are not able to be detected from within the confines of the turbine because of the metal structure, this can create a challenge for offshore wind farm maintenance. SeaRoc’s new solution enables […]
The implementation of U.S. offshore wind targets will not be as simple or, potentially, as green as it may seem since certain issues can "cause a bottleneck in the supply chain", according to research by Yale University. Researchers from Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies challenged the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) offshore wind plans, focusing specifically […]
