As part of a review of the business’s resilience, the company, based in Great Yarmouth, UK, looked to move data storage from its main site to a more secure environment. A number of considerations led the company to choose MIGSOLV’s facility in Norwich.

“Having a secure data center with excellent connectivity less than 20 miles away is fantastic.” said a spokesperson for Seajacks. “We were looking to store our data offsite as part of our disaster recovery plan. We decided against a cloud solution so we could remain in control and maintain physical access to our hardware. For us, MIGSOLV was an excellent choice.”

GE Renewable Energy unveiled its plans last month to build the world’s largest, most powerful offshore wind turbine, known as the Haliade-X. The huge rig will be tested and developed over the course of next five years at the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult research centre.

 

The Haliade-X will feature a 12-megawatt direct drive generator and will produce 45% more energy than any other offshore wind turbine currently available. The plans include generating 67 GWh annually. This is enough to power 16,000 European households.

A team of researchers is working to complete the design for a novel 50-megawatt offshore wind turbine, nearly six times more powerful than a record-setting 8.8-megawatt turbine recently deployed off the coast of Scotland. Testing will begin on prototype blades this summer in Colorado.

The massive turbine marks an about-face from conventional wind turbine design. The standard wind turbine installed today is a three-bladed machine positioned with the blades facing incoming winds.

Enerpac has introduced a new portfolio of hydraulic bolt tensioners for offshore wind power fastening applications.

The PGT-Series Double Deck and Single-Stage Bolt Tensioners provide high performance in tight spaces typically found in wind turbines. Key features include auto-retract pistons, over-stroke protection and auto-engage nut rundown. The FTR-Series Foundation Bolt Tensioners are designed specifically for tensioning wind tower foundations bolts.The FTE-Series Elliptical Foundation Bolt Tensioners provide a fastening solution on wind tower foundation applications where limited space between the stud and wall prevent the use of standard tools. They feature an elliptical geometry, which enables fit in narrow access foundation applications without reducing load capabilities.

GE Renewable Energy has laid out plans to develop what it says will be the world's largest and most powerful offshore wind turbine, the Haliade-X.

The scale of the turbine is considerable. It will stand 260 meters tall and have a capacity of 12 megawatts (MW) as well as 107-meter-long blades. GE is to spend more than $400 million on the turbine's development and deployment over the next three to five years.

Newfoundland and Labrador company Kraken Robotics is among the winners of an international competition to find new ways to inspect offshore wind turbines.

The company's German subsidiary, KrakenRobotik, was one of only four companies that won the Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) competition, which was funded by nine offshore wind developers and the government of Scotland.

Satcom provider NSSLGlobal has launched a one-dome, two-connection connectivity service. The new device, called FusionIP, combines VSAT and cellular connectivity within one 60cm SAILOR dome, combining  LTE and satellite broadband in one. The firm says that it allows ships to automatically switch between 4G/3G and satellite networks to achieve optimum data speeds and cost efficiency.

NSSLGlobal says that its new product presents a convenient, all-in-one package that is easy to install and provides a global “one SIM, one contract” service with speeds up to 100Mbits.

Danish company Vestas Wind Systems is one of the biggest makers of wind turbines in the world, recently surpassing GE’s market share in the US. But as the wind industry becomes more competitive, Vestas appears to be looking for ways to solidify its lead by offering something different. Now, the company says it’s looking into building wind turbines with battery storage onsite.

American offshore-wind developer Deepwater Wind has proposed to build in Massachusetts a 144-MW offshore wind farm, paired with a 40-MW-per-hour battery storage system provided by automaker and technology firm Tesla Inc.

“People may be surprised by just how affordable and reliable this clean energy combo will be,” Deepwater CEO Jeffrey Grybowski said.
