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.

GE Haliade-X Turbine Operating at 14 MW (Ind. Report, Int'l.)
GE Renewable Energy
Date: 2021-10-06
GE Renewable Energy is reporting its Haliade-X prototype in Rotterdam has begun operating at 14 MW -- the first turbine in the wind industry to operate a turbine at this power output. The Haliade-X 14 MW is an uprated version of the Haliade-X 13 MW, which received its type certification in January 2021. One Haliade-X 14 MW turbine can generate up to 74 GWh of gross annual energy production while saving up to 52,000 metric tpy of C02.

. The Haliade-X 14 MW will make its commercial debut at the Dogger Bank C offshore wind farm, which is located over 130 km off the north-east coast of England and, together with Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, is due to become the largest offshore wind farm in the world upon completion. GE Renewable Energy will provide 87 units of the Haliade-X 14 MW for Dogger Bank C.

Siemens Gamesa Ups Onshore Turbine Power Output (Ind.Report)
Siemens Gamesa
Date: 2021-09-27
Madrid-based wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa report it has increased the rating of its 5.X onshore platform output to 6.6MW. The new SG 6.6-155 and SG 6.6-170 turbines will now offer a higher unitary power while delivering a lower Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE).

Both turbines combine a flexible power rating from 5.6MW to 6.6MW with two of the largest rotor diameters in the market -- 155 and 170 meters. The new rating, together with the biggest rotor in the industry, configures the Siemens Gamesa 5.X as the highest yielding onshore turbine in the industry, according to the company release.

Siemens Gamesa Touts First Recyclable Wind Turbine Blades (Int'l.)
Siemens Gamesa
Date: 2021-09-13
Madrid-based wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa reports it has created recyclable blades that decompose relatively easily into constituent materials that can be reused.

The technology involves the dissolution of the bonding resin in weakly acidic solutions. In the manufacture of a blade, resin converts fiberglass and other polymers, as well as wood and metal parts of the blade structure into a monolithic product that can be used in the production of other commercial products.

In the process of disposal, the blade is immersed in a special solution and decomposes into primary materials, with the exception of the resin, which dissolves.

Using the new technology Siemens Gamesa manufactured the first 6 81-meter RecyclableBlade blades and signed three contracts for their use in wind turbine projects. The recyclable blades will be installed on the wind turbines of the Kaskasi power plant in Germany and on the offshore generators of the French EDF Renewables and German WPD projects.

An estimated 200,000 wind turbine blades will be buried in the ground or otherwise disposed of by 2050. (Source: Siemens Gamesa, Goa Spotlight, 12 Sept., 2021) Contact: Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Andreas Nauen, CEO, www.siemensgamesa.com ;EDF Renewables, www.edf-re.co

247Solar, STAG-Tech to Collaborate on Clean Power (Ind. Report)
247Solar, STAG-Tech
Date: 2021-08-04
Great Falls, Virginia-based 247Solar Inc and Bristol, UK-based STAG-Tech are reporting an agreement to combine STAG-Tech's innovative compact wind turbines with 247Solar's HeatStorE™ long-duration thermal battery to provide turnkey, round-the-clock clean power solutions for a wide range of off-grid applications such as mine sites.

STAG-Tech's tilt-up turbines capture the fastest wind speeds at significantly lower cost than conventional large turbines. Packed into a 40 ft shipping container, STAG-Tech's turbines can be truck transported to all but the most remote locations. Minimal concrete foundations make installation fast and affordable and easily relocated, according to STAG-Tech.

247Solar's HeatStorE operates almost like an electrochemical battery but has significant advantages at longer durations, according to the company. Electric resistance coils use electricity from wind or photovoltaic (PV) installations to heat inexpensive silica sand. Energy is thereby stored as ultra-high temperature heat -- up to 1,000 degrees C -- for up to 20 hours at a fraction of the cost of batteries. By adding an external combustor, the battery can produce fully dispatchable backup power, according to 247Solar.
