The SG 8.0-167 DD turbine provides an increase in annual energy production of 20 pct compared to the previously certified turbine variant, the SWT-7.0-154,
and is suitable for both 50 Hertz and 60 Hertz grid operation, according to Siemens Gamesa. The turbine will be installed in offshore wind parks worldwide including the 1,400MW Hornsea Two project in the UK and the 900MW Greater Changhua 1 & 2 project in Taiwan, according to Diemens Gamesa.

DNV GL's technical due diligence reportedly helped secure the €60 million from the European Investment Bank so the project could become the world's first project-financed floating wind farm.
The project is being developed by Windplus and will incorporate three 8.4-MW MHI Vestas turbines, the largest and most powerful wind turbines ever installed on a floating foundation platform.
Windplus is a subsidiary of EDP Renewables, Repsol and Principle Power.(Source: DNG GL, Windpower Eng., 7 Nov., 2019)Contact: EIB, www.eib.org; Windplus SA, www.offshorewind.biz/tag/windplus; EDP Renovaveis, www.edpr.com;

In 2017, Cargill pledged to cut its CO2 per cargo-ton-mile by 15 pct by the end of 2020.The CO2 Challenge follows the latest round of talks at the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO) on how to curb emissions from the global shipping sector. The IMO announced a new target to cut shipping emissions 50 per cent by 2050 backed by an interim strategy to curb emissions and introduce new reporting-based measures designed to drive investment in greener shipping technologies and techniques.
Businesses and entrepreneurs who have a product in need of commercial assessment, testing, investment, and scaling are being invited to apply to participate in the CO2 Challenge before September 17, 2018.

The DNV GL certification framework enables verification of conformity with the new ISO standard, ISO 27914:2017 CO2 capture, transportation and geological storage. This standard represents an international consensus on the requirements for the safe and effective storage of CO2 in geological formations.
The DNV GL certification framework provides additional clarity about the requirements an operator should meet and offers a recipe for how to meet them at different points in the lifecycle of a geological storage project, thus improving investor predictability and decreasing both capex and opex risks.
The updated recommended practice for design and operation of CO2 pipelines helps implement the new ISO standard 27913:2017. It is based on new knowledge gained from the CO2PIPETRANS joint industry project, which was completed in 2016, with specific focus on dense phase CO2 model validation, fracture arrest and corrosion.
