RWE Innogy testing second metocean buoy after promising first trial

metocean buoy

RWE Innogy, in partnership with the operator of Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm, has successfully completed the trial of an innovative offshore buoy for measuring wind and wave data in the Netherlands. The floating measuring platform demonstrably fulfilled the requirements with regard to availability and accuracy. For the purpose of testing further technical configurations with various manufacturers, an additional floating LiDAR was installed off the Dutch coast mid-March. The research project’s objective is to develop a cost-effective alternative to fixed met masts. Floating LiDAR systems are expected to only cost 10 to 20 percent of a conventional measuring mast, indicating huge potential to make a considerable contribution to cutting development costs of offshore wind farms.more

RWE starts construction of Sandbostel onshore wind farm

Today, RWE has started construction of the Sandbostel wind farm in the rural district of Rotenburg in Lower Saxony. Altogether five wind power turbines with a capacity of 2.35 megawatts (MW) each will be manufactured by the German company Enercon and installed at the site. With an installed capacity of altogether around 12 MW, the wind farm is expected to be fully operational at the end of 2015. The wind farm will then generate enough green electricity to supply an equivalent of 6,000 households every year. The wind turbines will have a total height of 150 meters.more
