New standard will increase confidence in floating offshore wind turbines –  DNV KEMA

DNV KEMA has released a new standard for floating offshore wind turbine structures which it says will give the nascent floating-turbine sector the confiden

Wind turbine developers will soon have open access to a £50mn testing facility in the U.K. based on unique and leading-edge technology.

The company says sensors in the blades will be able to predict weather conditions and calculate when they can harvest the most energy from the wind - while

At 200MW, the development will also be one of the biggest in Europe, according to the companies.

The following stories were the most popular with visitors to the Reinforced Plastics website last week.

2013 is expected to be a challenging year for the wind energy industry with global grid-connected installations set to be down 5% to 43.4 GW, according to

The 83.5 m long blade – said to be the world's largest to date – was commissioned by Samsung Heavy Industries and the first prototype was designed and manu

Vestas has manufactured the first prototype blade for its new V117-3.3 MW wind turbine at its factory in Brighton, Colorado, USA.
