A report published yesterday by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) highlights the fact that traditional power stations use vast amounts of water to generate power – and calls for this to be taken into account by Governments when they set energy and climate change policy. EWEA’s report “Saving Water with Wind Energy” says nuclear, […]
HUSUM Wind remains the unconventional meeting place for the wind industry that it has been since it was established in 1989 on the German North Sea coast – literally in the middle of what is a regional wind farm. And nothing has changed, even after it was announced in April 2013 that Messe Husum & […]
The Dutch IHC IQIP is investing in the BLUE Piling technology for driving the foundation piles of offshore wind turbines into the seabed. IHC IQIP has decided to join forces with Jasper Winkes, the developer of the BLUE Hammer, as it believes this technology “has a big future” and is a logical step in the further development and growth of offshore wind. […]

A new UK consortium is developing a self-installing scour protection system said to be able to save an average offshore wind farm approximately GBP 8.6 million over its lifetime. The Self-Installing Scour Protection for Offshore Wind Farms (SISProtect) project is being led by Seabed Scour Control Systems (SSCS), who will carry out the design of the prototype Frond […]
Artificial intelligence and 3D printing can help in solving the problem of erosion on wind turbine blades, according to a project conducted by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The antiAGE project saw VTT develop an optimized solution to the material problem through a design process using virtual testing and machine learning in less than a […]
DOCK90 The maritime & offshore industry has invested heavily and successfully in its development. It is powerful, innovative and has a strong position today. However, this is no guarantee for success in the future. The conventional, commercial processes and the role of communications have changed. Today we deal with more digital processes, with a new generation at the helm, with more transparency and wider globalisation. The […]
The Danish Energy and Climate Academy (ECA) and the University of Delaware have developed the Offshore Wind Skills Academy (OWSA) to provide education for the U.S. offshore wind market. The aim of OWSA is to prepare professionals from traditional energy industries, supply chain companies, regulators, investors, consultants and others who may be new in the offshore wind sector. […]
