The move to LNG as fuel in the maritime sector picks up steam, as CMA CGM announced plans to outfit nine of its new 22,000 TEU containerships with LNG fueled engines.
 
A trend that started in the United States is spreading to the world, as global container shipping giant CMA CGM announced its intention to outfit its series of new 22,000 TEU containerships with LNG-fueled engines. The move to ‘clean fuel’ in the maritime sector has been rapid, spurred by new rules from the International Maritime Organization set to enter force in 2020 which drastically reduces the amount of allowable sulfur in marine fuel. As ship owners mull options, the move by CMA CGM is a watershed moment in the large containership sector.

Russia Announces Plans for Space-Age Icebreakers

Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s colorful deputy prime minister, has again made headlines by claiming the country will build a series of advanced nuclear icebreakers that have long been considered a mere fantasy.

Speaking to Tass, the official state newswire, before the end of the year, Rogozin said that Russia would build three Lider class nuclear icebreakers between 2023 and 2025, which would make navigation for commercial traffic in the Arctic possible all year long.

These new icebreakers, dubbed project 10510, would follow on three other nuclear ice-traversing vessels that Russia is already building to the tune of nearly $2 billion a piece: The Arktika, the Sibir and the Ural, the hulls for two of which have already been floated at the Baltic Shipyard in Saint Petersburg – and which were until recently billed as the biggest icebreakers ever.

The waste-to-energy facility is due to begin operation in 2018. The building was completed with University of Hull input in the hopes of increasing access to education about renewable energy.

A key element of the new, £200m energy from waste power plant ‘Energy Works’ has been completed, paving the way for new research into renewable energy technologies.

Spencer Group, a multi-disciplinary engineering business, has steered the Energy Works scheme in Hull from concept to delivery and the company is now playing a part in construction of the vast green energy facility.

Up to 150 Spencer Group staff and sub-contractors have been delivering the £35m package of civil and structural works for the green energy power plant. The team has now completed the Energy Academy, a learning, research and development facility created in partnership with the University of Hull.

Over the last year, cities and towns throughout the United States have assumed a new mantle of leadership: establishing bold commitments to move away from dirty fuels and repower their communities with 100 percent clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar.

Community by community, local leaders are demonstrating that a transition away from dirty fuels like coal and fracked gas and toward 100 percent clean energy is already happening.

UK engineering consultancy Atkins is to design the monopile foundations for Innogy’s 860MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm off the UK east coast.

Atkins has been subcontracted by the foundation supplier – a joint venture between Smulders and Sif – to design 90 monopiles for the MHI Vestas V164-9.5MW turbines and two structures for the offshore substations.

Proposal for turbines in 30 m/s winds

Posted by Charles Decuir on November 10, 2017 9:40 AM EST

The power produced by any given wind turbine varies with the third power of the wind speed. Therefore, an 8-MW turbine designed for the North Sea would theoretically produce over 140 MW if taken into the Roaring Forties. It would obviously have to be strengthened considerably (Wilson proposed a new type of wind turbine that should be more reliable in high winds) but if we lower the power output to 50 MW per turbine there would still be vastly more available energy to power all the earth’s needs almost forever.
