Date: 2021-12-08
Bremen, Germany-headquartered wind and solar energy developer wpd AG is reporting an agreement with Nordex Group for the supply of turbines for wpd's 47 MW onshore wind project in Stollsaterberget in Sweden. Nordex will supply eight "cold-climate variant" N163/5.X turbines along with a 15-year premium service agreement.

Preparatory construction work on the wind farm access roads began in October, 2021. The turbines are scheduled to be installed in mid-2023.

With the Stollsaterberget project, wpd and its Swedish national subsidiary wpd Scandinavia AB, is expanding in Swedish market following commissioning of the 17 WTGs, 71.4 MW Aldermyrberget project.

wpd develops and operates onshore and offshore wind farms and solar parks, and is actively engaged in 28 countries. The company has already realized wind energy projects with around 2,400 wind turbines and an output of 5,150 MW, and is planning further projects with a total of 12,300 MW onshore, 13,800 MW offshore and 1,650 MWp solar energy, according to the company website.

Taiwan's Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm Generates First Power (Int'l.)
TotalEnergies, wpd
Date: 2021-12-01
Paris-headquartered TotalEnergies is reporting the first of 80 wind turbines turbine of the 640 MW Yunlin offshore wind farm in Taiwan is now generating power. When completed and fully online, the Yunlin facility will generate 2.4 TWh per year of renewable electricity -- sufficient to serve the power needs of 605,000 households.

TotalEnergies joined the Yunlin project, operated by wpd, with a 23 pct interest in May 2021 alongside EGCO Group and a consortium of Japanese investors led by Sojitz.

According to the release, TotalEnergies is already developing a portfolio of offshore wind projects with a total capacity of more than 6 gigawatts, of which 2/3 are bottom-fixed and 1/3 are floating. These projects are located in the United Kingdom (Seagreen, Outer Dowsing and Erebus projects), South Korea (Bada project), Taiwan (Yunlin project), and France (Eolmed project).

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
