Hvide Sande Port to Serve Vattenfall Wind Farms

Vattenfall has chosen Hvide Sande Harbour as its service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms. Hvide Sande will to be the service hub for Vattenfall’s Danish offshore wind operations in the northern part of the North Sea and benefit from the creation of about 50 jobs. The choice of Hvide Sande as the service port for Vesterhav Syd and Nord wind farms means that three offshore wind farms will be serviced from the Port of Hvide Sande. In 2019, Hvide Sande was selected as Vattenfall’s service port for the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm. As a result, once Vesterhav Syd and Nord come on-line, the Port of Hvide Sande will service a total of 90 offshore wind turbines and a fossil-free electricity production matching the consumption of approx. 800,000 Danish homes.

This choice represents a milestone in the development of Vesterhav Syd and Nord offshore wind farms. Vattenfall will design and develop new facilities at the port for operating offices and warehousing, and it is expected that the new hub will make a positive contribution to the town in many ways.

Facts about the Hvide Sande Offshore Service Hub

Hvide Sande service hub will service a total of 90 offshore turbines spread over three offshore wind farms – Vesterhav Syd and Nord, and Horns Rev 3.

The service hub will employ about 50 workers locally, once Vesterhav Syd and Nord come on-line.

The total production of 757 MW from the three wind farms will be enough to supply about 800,000 homes with electricity

Horns Rev 3 has been in operation since 2019, and Vesterhav Syd and Nord are expected to come on-line by the end of 2023.

Aker Solutions Completes First Phase of Hywind Tampen Construction

Aker Solutions’ contract with Equinor on Hywind Tampen includes construction of 11 floating concrete foundations for windmill turbines. The scope covers engineering, procurement and construction of the foundations, as well as marine operations. The first 20 meters of the foundations was built in the dry dock at Aker Solutions’ yard in Stord. Once the foundations are moored at Dommersnes in Vindafjord, the concrete slip-forming will continue to a height of 107 meters. The scope at Dommersnes includes mechanical outfitting of the foundations before they are transported to Gulen for installation of the wind turbines. The last phase of the project is tow-out and installation offshore, which will be carried out in a 50/50 partnership with DOF Subsea.

The Hywind Tampen foundations are the first concrete structures for an offshore project on the Norwegian continental shelf since Troll A in 1995. The concrete technology developed for the petroleum industry is now utilized in a renewable energy project. Hence, Hywind Tampen represents a direct transfer of technology from oil and gas to renewables.

The project has an estimated contract value of NOK 1.5 billion and will provide work for about 250 employees in Aker Solutions. Including ripple effects to subcontractors and the public sector, the project will involve around 800 work-years in total. The project has already resulted in several sub-contracts to Norwegian suppliers, particularly in the Rogaland and Vestland regions.

Equinor’s Hywind Tampen is the world’s largest floating offshore windfarm and an important project for competency development and industrialization of offshore wind in Norway. The project is of great importance to secure access to electrical power offshore and reduce CO2 emissions from the Norwegian continental shelf. It is also a contribution to the positioning of the Norwegian industry for a growing international market.

Vattenfall Gets Permit for Swedish Kriegers Flak

The County Administrative Board of Skåne has granted Vattenfall a Natura 2000 permit to build wind power on the Swedish section of Kriegers Flak. The decision is a step toward achieving Sweden's climate goals and makes a long-awaited contribution to energy supply in southern Sweden. "The decision shows that it is possible to find ways for environmental considerations and wind power to coexist in the Nordvästra Skånes Utsjövatten Natura 2000 area. With this, we are taking a long-awaited step towards more renewable electricity generation in the region of Skåne," says Johnny Ståhlberg, Vattenfall project manager.

In order to achieve their goals, Region Skåne, the County Administrative Board and Kommunförbundet Skåne intend to increase renewable electricity generation by 3.0 TWh by 2030. Generating between 2.3 and 2.8 TWh annually, corresponding to approximately 20 per cent of Skåne's electricity consumption, the Swedish wind farm Kriegers Flak will be important for Skåne's energy and climate transition.

In recent years, parts of the Kriegers Flak wind farm area have been classified as a Natura 2000 site. To minimise impact, the turbines will therefore be placed at a sufficient distance from sensitive habitat types. As part of the Natura 2000 evaluation, Vattenfall has conducted thorough environmental studies in the area covering reef, bird, fish and porpoise nature types. This is to enable finding alternatives, taking appropriate protective measures and using methods to facilitate coexistence between wind power and environmental considerations.

Facts on Swedish Kriegers Flak

Kriegers Flak is located in the Baltic Sea 30 kilometres south of the city of Trelleborg.

Vattenfall's application pertains to 40-50 wind turbines with a maximum height of 280 metres.

The maximum output of the facility is about 640 MW.

With an annual generation of 2.3-2.8 TWh, Kriegers Flak is important for Skåne's electricity supply.

On the Danish side of Kriegers Flak, Vattenfall is already building a wind farm that will be the country's largest. On the German side there has been a wind farm since 2015.

Swedish Kriegers Flak is in the planning phase and can become operational sometime around 2027-2028.

RWE to Launch Airborne Wind Energy Testing Site in Ireland

RWE, one of the world’s leading renewable energy players, is to establish its first test centre to investigate the potential of innovative airborne wind energy technologies. Planning permission to build the new facility in County Mayo, Ireland, has now been granted and construction of the site infrastructure is expected to begin later this year. RWE is delivering the test site in partnership with Ampyx Power, a Dutch company that is developing the innovative wind energy technology. RWE’s test site will first undertake testing, verification and demonstration of a 150 kilowatts (kW) demonstrator system, followed later by a larger commercial-scale 1 megawatt (MW) system. RWE will also test systems from other AWE developers during the eight year operational lifetime of its test centre.

Airborne Wind Energy Systems harness the strong and steady winds at altitudes greater than several hundred metres, and with reduced infrastructure costs. The system being tested by RWE consists of a ground-based winch generator, a launch and land platform, and small, aircraft-shaped device.

The device, which has a 12-metre (about 40 feet) wingspan, is connected to the generator by an ultra-strong tether. It draws the tether from the winch and produces electricity by acting against the resistance of the built-in generator. Once the tether is fully extended, the device glides back towards the winch, as the tether is reeled back in. Retrieving the tether requires just a fraction of the electricity generated, resulting in net power production. This cycle is performed repeatedly, producing clean, low-cost electricity.

Current Airborne Wind Energy Systems demonstrators have power output capacities between 100 and 200 kW. Developing this technology further could increase the potential output to megawatts, making it attractive for use at large wind farms.

RWE’s test centre is supported by the Interreg North-West Europe funding programme, which was set up by the EU. Its MegaAWE project, of which RWE and Ampyx are partners, was set up to support technology development and commercialization within the airborne wind energy sector.

EDP Unveils Energy Transition Plans for Asturias in Spain

EDP announced the first floating wind farm in Spain for Asturias and promotes projects related to green hydrogen and energy storage in the Principality. The plan includes the first floating wind farm in Spain for Asturias and Soto de Ribera as the green battery of the region. It also promotes projects related to green hydrogen and energy storage. These are EDP's plans for the autonomous community, where it wants to contribute decisively to promoting the generation of 100% renewable energy and favoring industrial decarbonization.

EDP has ambitious energy transformation plans for Asturias, where it could develop projects worth 470 million euros, mainly at its Soto de Ribera and Aboño sites, as well as at the first floating wind farm in Spain.

EDP's plans in Soto de Ribera, for which group 3 has already requested closure authorization, also involve renewable energies. The company could turn this site into a reference center for the storage of renewable energy and new uses of green hydrogen.

With regard to renewable generation, EDP has already started the processing of a mini-hydraulic power plant with hydroscrews that would take advantage of the waters of the Nalón, as it passes through the plant. This installation will be added to a photo-voltaic park that the company plans to start on the site's grounds.

The renewable energy generated by both facilities would be poured into the grid to meet demand. It would allow the production and storage of green hydrogen, and the surplus would be stored in two types of batteries: Lithium Ion and a combination of RedOx and second-hand batteries - for example, of vehicles. In addition, EDP is working on various other projects for the storage of liquid air to generate electricity.

As for the new uses of green hydrogen, the company proposes different projects. It plans to build a hydrogeneration station -hydrogen gas station- with the aim of contributing to the decarbonization of passenger and freight transport; it will promote the decarbonization of the surrounding industries; and it will carry out tests in combined cycles, in a scenario that would facilitate the replacement of natural gas currently used by green hydrogen.

Aboño, valley of green hydrogen

The Aboño thermal power plant has been, for almost 50 years, a guarantee for the stability of the electricity supply of Asturian industry. EDP's plans include maintaining this role in the energy transition.

Ørsted Commits to Sustainable Recycling of Wind Turbine Blades

On Ørsted's Capital Markets Day, Ørsted announced its new commitment to either reuse, recycle, or recover all of the wind turbine blades in Ørsted's global portfolio of onshore and offshore wind farms upon decommissioning. The commitment comes as a part of Ørsted's new company strategy which includes an ambition to expand its leading sustainability position and as part of the work towards achieving a carbon-neutral footprint by 2040.

Today, between 85 % and 95 % of a wind turbine can be recycled, but recycling of wind turbine blades remains a challenge, as the blades are designed to be lightweight, yet durable, making them challenging to break apart. Consequently, most decommissioned blades are landfilled today. Should the challenge with recycling blades take longer to solve than anticipated, Ørsted will not use landfilling for decommissioned wind turbine blades, but will instead temporarily store the blades.

In the coming decade, wind turbines will be deployed at an unprecedented pace, delivering clean renewable energy to industries and to several hundreds of million people, making it even more important to decommission the blades in a sustainable way.

Ørsted is already contributing to advance the technologies that can recycle wind turbine blades in a sustainable way as a founding partner of the cross-sector DecomBlades consortium consisting of wind industry companies and research institutions. The consortium seeks to investigate and develop solutions to recycle the composite material in wind turbine blades. The consortium recently received a three-year funding from Innovation Fund Denmark for its work.
