  • World's largest floating offshore wind farm to be built off the coast of Scotland - TomoNews

    PETERHEAD, SCOTLANDScotland's notoriously strong winds could pan out to be a blessing in disguise after the Scottish government recently approved plans for a floating wind farm right off of the Scottish coast. According to the Guardian, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017. The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings. Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually ...

The world's first offshore wind farm was a great success, but after more than 25 years of operation, the Vindeby wind turbines were worn down, and DONG Energy therefore decided to decommission the wind farm.

    A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012[1] with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest...

Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually attached to the seabed, these types of wind turbines are cheaper than traditional ocean turbines and can be placed in deeper waters. Existing offshore wind turbines, which need to stand on concrete or steel foundations, are expensive if anchored to depths greater than 40 meters, reported the Guardian. Statoil's goal with this $232 million pilot project is to demonstrate a way to harness wind power that can increase the global market potential for turbines. Offshore wind is a key component of Europe's plan to source 20 percent of its total energy consumption from renewables, reported the Independent. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity.

A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012[1] with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest offshore wind farm in the world, followed by the 504 MW Greater Gabbard wind farm in the UK.

Smart grids will control the power supply and demand thus ensuring a reliable flow of current.

The largest wind farm in the world is being constructed in China's Gansu Province, and is one of six mega-farms going up across the country.

So the fact that China is building the world’s largest Wind Power Farm too shouldn’t surprise you. The Gansu Wind Farm Project will produce 20 Gigawatts of power by 2020, and will cost nearly $20 billion to build. Turbines are going up at the staggering rate of 35 per day across the three areas that make up the power base. In 2012, Gansu’s capacity surpassed the total wind-generated-electricity produced by all of the United Kingdom, and it’s just the largest of six mega-wind farms currently under construction throughout China. But China isn’t embracing wind just to reduce its carbon emissions, it’s doing everything it can to simply keep the lights on. Some parts of the country with booming middle class populations suffer persistent electricity shortages because, just like us, people want refrigerators, dishwashers, washer and dryers, and computers in their homes, but there’s only so much energy to go around. So China’s State Council is pushing for an across-the-board renewable strategy to reduce its dependence on oil, coal and gas, the finite resources of the 20th century whose extraction and consumption are subject to constant geopolitical tensions. As a result, since 2013, China has led the world in renewable energy production, with a total capacity of 378 installed Gigawatts, coming from projects as wide-ranging as Gansu to hydroelectric power plants like the Three Gorges Dam, which spans the Yangtze River and is the world’s largest power station of any kind. In just the last 10 years, China has increased its solar panel production 100-fold to become the world’s leading manufacturer of the technology. With China now pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere than the number two and three emitting countries - the US and India - combined, it’s vital for the future of the planet that it continues using MegaProjects to create a lot more Megawatts of clean, green power.
