EarthKind Energy wind purchase makes University at Buffalo #1 in EPA Green Power Partnership

62 Siemens-Windenergieanlagen des Typs SWT-2.3-101 drehen sich hier im Windpark West Wind nahe Wellington in Neuseeland. Aufgrund konstanter Windbedingungen und hoher Windgeschwindigkeiten eignet sich Neuseeland bestens für die Realisierung von Windenergieprojekten. West Wind ist der erste Windpark in Neuseeland, den Siemens im Oktober 2009 in Betrieb nahm. 62 Siemens wind turbines of the type SWT-2.3-101 turn here in the wind park West Wind near Wellington in New Zealand. The consistently strong wind speeds in New Zealand make the country ideal for wind power plants. West Wind is the first wind power plant Siemens commissioned in October 2009.

Off Shore Wind Energy is Back!

 

Der schwedische Offshore-Windpark Lillgrund im Öresund zwischen Malmö und Kopenhagen. Siemens hat im Projekt Lillgrund 48 Windenergieanlagen des Typs SWT-2.3-93 mit einer Leistung von jeweils 2,3 Megawatt (MW) installiert. Der Windpark mit einer installierten Gesamtleistung von 110 Megawatt (MW) wird vom schwedischen Energieversorger Vattenfall betrieben und wurde im Juni 2008 offiziell in Betrieb genommen. Der Offshore-Windpark Lillgrund produziert genug Strom, um 60.000 schwedische Haushalte zu versorgen. The Swedish offshore wind farm Lillgrund in the Øresund between Malmö and Copenhagen. For the Lillgrund project Siemens installed 48 SWT-2.3-93 wind power systems each rated at 2.3 megawatts (MW). The wind farm with a total installed capacity of 110 MW is operated by the Swedish utility Vattenfall and officially came on line in June 2008. The Lillgrund offshore wind farm produces enough electrcity to supply 60,000 Swedish households.

It’s looking like off shore wind projects are finally taking off.  For a while there it wasn’t looking very hopeful. This is great news for the renewable energy industry!   Read here for some of the exciting new projects!
