Siemens Gamesa to Install Wind Turbines in Morocco (Int'l. Report)
Siemens Gamesa,Enel Green Power
Date: 2020-09-04
In Madrid, Spanish wind energy giant Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy reports it will install 87 wind turbines covered by a 5-year service agreement at a 300-MW wind farm north-east of the city of Boujdour in southern Morocco. The roughly $435.4 million project is expected to come online in Q3, 2022.

The Boujdour wind farm, which is owned by a consortium of Moroccan energy company Nareva and Italian Enel Green Power, was acquired by the consortium in 2016 as part of an 850-MW tender under the Moroccan Integrated Wind Power Project.

Morocco aims to source 52 pct of its installed electrical capacity from renewable energy sources by 2030. Siemens Gamesa presently operates eight wind farms totaling 856 MW in Morocco representing over 72 pct of the local market share, according to the company.

Ocean Renewables Touted as Climate Change Solution (Ind. Report)
Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition
Date: 2020-06-12
The attached report from the Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition's (OREAC) Ocean Panel has found that ocean-based renewable energy, such as offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power, could meet nearly 10 pct of the global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions needed to remain on a Paris-compliant 1.5 degrees C pathway in 2050.

The report estimates that up to 85 pct of this decarbonization potential will come from offshore wind. 1,400 GW of offshore wind would power one-tenth of global electricity demand while saving over 3 billion tpy of CO2 -- equal to taking 800 million cars off the road.

OREAC is spearheaded by Orsted and Equinor, and includes other major players in the global offshore wind industry: CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, MHI Vestas, MingYang Smart Energy, Mainstream Renewable Power, Shell, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, TenneT, and GE Renewable Energy. Additional partner organisations include Global Wind Energy Council, World Resources Institute, UN Global Compact, the Chinese Wind Energy Association and Ocean Energy Systems.

Date: 2019-06-14
Wind energy giant Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) is reporting the official launch of its Electric Thermal Energy Storage (ETES) pilot project in Hamburg, Germany.

The SGRE system heats volcanic rocks to 750C using a resistance heater and blower, which can be powered by wind turbines. The heat can then be used to generate steam. SGRE notes the pilot can store 130 MWh of energy for up to one week. SGRE claims the technology offers a second-life option to existing power plants as it uses standard components.

SGRE is partnering with local utility Hamburg Energie -- which will market the stored electricty -- and the Hamburg University of Technology on the pilot, which received funding from the German government.

German Q1 Onshore Wind Installations Becalmed (Int'l Report)
FA Wind
Date: 2019-05-01
Fachagentur-Windenergie (FA Wind), the German onshore wind agency, is reporting onshore wind installations in Germany dropped 87 pct in Q1 of 2019. The agency reported only 41 turbines totaling 134MW went online -- 13 pct of the average first quarter performance for between 2016 and 2018 period.

Thirteen Vestas turbines, 11 Enercon, seven Nordex, six Senvion, three ENO Energy and a single Siemens Gamesa model were spread across seven of the country's 16 states, with 13 turbines in the western state of Rhineland Palatinate alone. Eight turbines were part of repowering projects meaning net capacity growth was lower than 134MW.

Out of 730 turbines that won an allocation in 2017, only 35 have been commissioned, five of them in the first three months of 2019. The permitting situation has slightly improved with 111 turbines (413MW) getting the green light in the first quarter, a third more capacity than the average of the same periods of 2017 and 2018.
