Vestas Commissions Extreme Voltage Turbine Test (Int'l. Report)
Vestas
Date: 2021-11-17
Danish wind energy giant Vestas Wind Systems A/S reports it has commissioned a new R&D FRT Test System that allows turbines to be tested directly at the operating voltage of 66 kV, avoiding any set-down transformer converting the test setup to 33 kV.

Denmark-based R&D Test Systems installed the world's first fault ride through (FRT) test system at the National Test Centre for Large Wind Turbines operated by the Danish Technical University (DTU) facility, Osterild.

FRT testing is intended to prove that wind turbines are resilient to grid power quality issues such as when power transmission cables are damaged in a storm. The test is designed to ensure that the generating units, increasingly located out at sea, do not fail due to voltage variations in the power transmission network -- a scenario that could lead to costly downtime, maintenance and, in extreme situations, power outages, according to the release.

X1 Wind Touts "Downwind" Floating Offshore Wind Platform (Int'l.)
X1 Wind
Date: 2021-10-18
Barcelona-based X1 Wind reports it has completed the rotor assembly for its prototype X30 floating wind platform which is now fully assembled in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, ready for installation. Fitted with a specially adapted V29 Vestas turbine, the unique "downwind" system is able to "weathervane" and orientate passively with the wind to maximise energy yields.

The novel tripod-like platform also features greater structural efficiency with a lighter and more scalable design while minimizing environmental impact on the ocean. The X1 Wind platform incorporates the best features of a semi-submersible -- with a low draft -- and the ability to reach deeper waters by a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) mooring system -- with a small seabed footprint.

X1 Wind's X30 deployment is in conjunction with the PivotBuoy Project backed by a pan-European consortium including leading companies EDP NEW, DNV, INTECSEA, ESM and DEGIMA and world-class research centres WavEC, DTU and PLOCAN.
