The risk of seabirds colliding with offshore wind turbines is less than half of what would be expected based on current understanding as seabirds have been witnessed to exhibit avoidance behaviour and change their flight path to avoid the turbines, a recent study has shown.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has launched a suite of next-generation SMART tools to enhance design assessments, turbine monitoring, and real-time decision-making.
Two Towers B.V., the consortium developing the 19MW Borssele V demonstrator wind farm in the Dutch North Sea, has selected MHI Vestas Offshore Wind as the preferred wind turbine supplier.

Offshore WIND Expertise Hub interview with Rene Bos, Project Engineer at Eneco.
First wind turbines could be installed offshore India by as early as 2020, however, several pre-conditions must be met for this to be achieved, Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said.
Power is now being generated from the final phase of Walney Extension which will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm on completion later this year, Ørsted, the developer of the wind farm, said.
Following multiple not yet realised 10MW+ concept plans, there is already much wind industry talk about the next-generation 12-15 MW turbines. The question is whether especially new concepts in the latter category will be mainly evolutionary scaling of current technology, or a radical departure to new concept solutions.
Wind farms across Denmark, both on land and those in Danish waters, broke record in 2017 by producing electricity equivalent to 43.6% of the country's total consumption. Until the end of 2017, the record year was 2015, when wind power delivered an equivalent of 42% of Danish electricity consumption, according to Dansk Energi.
