The 79,350 acre site, secured by Statoil in a federal auction in December 2016, has the potential to generate up to 1GW of offshore wind power, making it a key part of New York State’s plan to deploy renewable energy sources to meet the state’s electricity needs.
The initiative is using the expertise from Lloyd’s Register in the testing and development of internationally recognised standards and certification schemes for the sector against new marine technology, enabling confidence to private and commercial investors seeking to invest in marine energy projects.
ABS has completed the design review of the Front End Engineering and Design documentation for the University of Maine developed floating offshore wind turbine concept, the VolturnUS, which is based on a concrete four-column semi-submersible hull concept.
The facility connects physical power plant controllers to a real-time simulator, allowing the controller to be fully tested and validated without the need for an actual generation facility or power grid. This enables cost-effective, low-risk testing under realistic conditions for all forms of renewable energy control systems.
DNV GL issued its Energy Outlook report for 2017, to provide an understanding of the energy future, emphasizing that, over the next three decades, the world’s energy system will decarbonize and change in many ways.
Adding energy storage to renewable energy installations such as solar plants or wind turbines, is becoming more interesting every day. On this context, DNV GL participated in the WindStock project for Topsector Energie, that focused on feasibility of combining wind, solar and storage.
Eco Marine Power announced that it has begun preparing for sea trials of its Aquarius Marine Renewable Energy solution, in co-operation with strategic partners and ship owner Hisafuku Kisen K.K. of Onomichi, Japan.
DP World and Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, to explore areas of collaboration on clean energy solutions for DP World’s portfolio of ports and freezones in the Middle East and Africa.
Prysmian Group announced that it entered in a partnership with the research institute CEA Liten, to provide cables on the Energy Observer, the world’s first catamaran powered solely by renewable sources. The vessel is committed to a six-year trip around the world, building a consensus about new solutions for a cleaner future.
