Ampyx Power Airborne Wind Energy Tests Set for Ireland (Int'l.)
Ampyx Power
Date: 2021-05-19
RWE, a global renewable energy deeloper, reports it will establish its first test center in County Mayo, Ireland, to investigate the potential of innovative airborne wind energy technologies in partnership with The Hague-headquartered Ampyx Power. Construction of the testing site infrastructure is expected to begin later this year.

Ampyx Power's device to be tested has a 12-metre (40 feet) wingspan and is tethered to a ground mounted generator that produces electricity. Current Airborne Wind Energy Systems demonstrators have power output capacities between 100 and 200 kW, according to the release.

RWE's test centre is supported by the Interreg North-West Europe funding programme. The company has been active in Ireland since 2016.

UMaine Joins $147Mn Floating Offshore Wind Effort (Ind. Report)
University of Maine, Aqua Ventus
Date: 2020-08-07
The University of Maine (UMaine) reports it will collaborate with New England Aqua Ventus LLC, which includes Diamond Offshore Wind, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corp., and RWE Renewables , that are investing $100 million in a project aimed at showing the feasibility of a full-scale, floating wind turbine in deep water. The $100 million investment is in addition to $47 million in grants already awarded by the U.S. DOE.

Using a floating concrete hull designed to last 100 years the project will support a 10- to 12-MW wind turbine 2 miles south of Monhegan Island and 14 miles from the Maine coast. Three mooring lines will anchor the hull in 300 feet of water.

UMaine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center will continue with design and engineering, research and development and post-construction monitoring. So far, the VolturnUS technology has been issued 43 patents and is being licensed by UMaine to New England Aqua Ventus for this project. Aqua Ventus will own and manage permitting, construction, assembly, deployment and ongoing operations. Following extensive permitting, deployment is expected by 2023.
