Narec, the national centre for the UK dedicated to advancing the development, demonstration, deployment and grid integration of renewable energy and low carbon generation technologies, is developing an offshore wind farm site in the North Sea comprising up to 20 pre-consented “pods”, at which tenants may deploy their prototype or pre-commercial turbines and foundations. As […]
The global ocean energy sector is at a turning point, with over 45 wave and tidal prototypes expected to be ocean tested in 2010 and 2011, after only a dozen were installed in 2009, according to a new IHS Emerging Energy Research market study. If these initial projects are successful, the global ocean energy project […]
Vestas Towers America, Inc., today announced the grand opening of the world’s largest wind tower manufacturing plant. The new Pueblo, Colorado facility features nearly 13 million square feet of space and eight miles of on-site railway tracks for the transport of materials and finished tower components.

Offshore wind turbines could be sited in deeper water, closer to the shore off the UK coast to take advantage of stronger, more consistent wind speeds, according to the Energy Technologies Institute. Project Deepwater, a consortium led by Blue H with BAE Systems, the Centre for the Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture (CEFAS), EDF, Romax Technology […]
We pioneered the use of wind lidar in the industry some eight years ago. With more than two a hundred and fifty ZephIR deployments globally we remain the market leader.
FusionDriveTM integrates a highquality gear, traditionally the largest component in a turbine, manufactured by Moventas and a reliable permanent magnet generator by The Switch in an innovative way – together smaller in size and lighter in weight than any other solution in the market. “The lower the nacelle weight, the more cost competitive the turbine. […]
The world’s largest networking event for the international offshore wind industry takes place on November 17 in Denmark.
