GAMESA TO INSTALL NINE TURBINES TO REPOWER A WIND FARM IN THE UK
Monday, July 27, 2015

Source: Gamesa

MADRID - Wind energy specialist Gamesa has been contracted to supply nine wind turbines to repower the Ovenden Moor wind farm in the UK, developed by a joint venture between utility E.ON and renewable generator Energy Power Resources Ltd (EPRL). By replacing the old turbines, the facility - in operation since 1993 - will be refitted with modern technology and produce twice as much power using less than half as many turbines.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission nine of its G80-2.0 MW wind turbines at the Ovenden Moor wind farm located close to the town of Halifax, in the county of West Yorkshire.

This repowering project, which is due to commence generation in 2016, will enable the replacement of 23 turbines that are 22 years of age and present aggregate capacity of 9 MW with nine Gamesa turbines that will produce twice as much power (18 MW).

The wind farm's installed capacity, once upgraded to 18 MW, will enable the supply of renewable energy to close to 12,000 homes in the UK and displace the emission of 21,000 tons of GHG per annum.

ABB HANDS OVER GERMANY'S DOLWIN1 OFFSHORE WIND ENERGY LINK
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Source: ABB

ZURICH - ABB has commissioned and handed over the DolWin1 offshore wind grid connection to the Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT.

The 800 megawatts (MW) High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) link connects offshore wind farms around 75 kilometers off the German coast in the DolWin cluster, with the country's transmission grid. The DolWin1 grid connection can integrate 800 MW of offshore wind power, enough to supply around one million households with clean energy.

The DolWin1 grid connection is part of Germany's ambitious energy transition roadmap, called "Energiewende," which foresees the generation of more than 6.5 gigawatts (GW) from offshore wind by 2020 and 15 GW by 2030.

ABB deployed its Voltage Source Converter (VSC) technology, called HVDC Light®, for the project and was responsible for the design, engineering supply and installation of the offshore and onshore converter stations, as well as the submarine and underground cable systems.

The wind farm Borkum West II and the wind farm Borkum Riffgrund I are connected via submarine cables to DolWin alpha, the offshore converter station. Here the alternating current from the wind farms is converted into direct current before being transmitted at a voltage of +/- 320 kilovolts (kV) via 165 kilometers of extruded DC submarine and underground cables to the grid connection point at the Dörpen West substation in Heede, northern Germany.
