Vestas
Date: 2020-10-07
Vestas is touting its new V155-3.3 MW wind turbine will initially target low and ultra-low wind condition projects in India and USA. It increases the turbine swept area by 67 pct in comparison to V120-2.2 MW, and with a large rotor to rating ratio, it significantly improves the partial load production in low-wind conditions. The V155-3.3 MW improves the annual energy production (AEP) by more than 3 pct for a 300 MW wind park with 46 fewer turbines, creating an improved level of business case certainty.

Built on the globally proven 4 MW platform, the V155-3.3 MW features a full-scale converter delivering excellent grid compliance, faster active and reactive power during dynamic frequency and voltage events. Prototype installation is planned for Q3, 2021, while serial production is expected by the first quarter of 2022, according to the release.

Wind World's Third-Largest Renewable Energy Employer (Int'l.)
IRENA,Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2020-10-02
In Abu Dhabi, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is reporting wind energy was the third-largest renewable energy employer in 2019 -- accounting for 1.17 million jobs worldwide.

Almost 23,000 wind turbines were installed in 2019. The Chinese market has been (and remains) almost entirely supplied by domestic companies, which account for around 510,000 jobs or 44 pct of the global number. European countries where wind giants Vestas and Siemens Gamesa alone account for one-third of global turbine production dominate the rest of global production, with 127,000 jobs.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) estimates that 344 GW of new offshore and offshore wind power capacity may be installed globally. New installations could potentially create an addition 2.4 million job-years, up from 395,000 job-years created in 2020 to 542,000 in 2024.

Shetland Viking Wind Project Construction Underway (Int'l. Report)
Scottish and Southern Energy
Date: 2020-09-14
Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) is reporting construction is underway on the £580 million, 103 Vestas turbine equipped Viking Wind Farm which received planning consent eight years ago.
