  • Offshore Wind Power - Short Documentary

    A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012[1] with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest...

According to the Guardian, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017. The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings. Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually ...

Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually attached to the seabed, these types of wind turbines are cheaper than traditional ocean turbines and can be placed in deeper waters. Existing offshore wind turbines, which need to stand on concrete or steel foundations, are expensive if anchored to depths greater than 40 meters, reported the Guardian. Statoil's goal with this $232 million pilot project is to demonstrate a way to harness wind power that can increase the global market potential for turbines. Offshore wind is a key component of Europe's plan to source 20 percent of its total energy consumption from renewables, reported the Independent. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Wave power is the transport of energy by wind waves, and the capture of that energy to do useful work – for example, electricity generation, water desalination, or the pumping of water (into reservoirs). A machine able to exploit wave power is generally known as a wave energy converter (WEC). Wave power is distinct from the diurnal flux of tidal power and the steady gyre of ocean currents. Wave-power generation is not currently a widely employed commercial technology, although there have been attempts to use it since at least 1890. In 2008, the first experimental wave farm was opened in Portugal, at the Aguçadoura Wave Park Physical concepts Waves are generated by wind passing over the surface of the sea. As long as the waves propagate slower than the wind speed just above the waves, there is an energy transfer from the wind to the waves. Both air pressure differences between the upwind and the lee side of a wave crest, as well as friction on the water surface by the wind, making the water to go into the shear stress causes the growth of the waves. Wave height is determined by wind speed, the duration of time the wind has been blowing, fetch (the distance over which the wind excites the waves) and by the depth and topography of the seafloor (which can focus or disperse the energy of the waves). A given wind speed has a matching practical limit over which time or distance will not produce larger waves. When this limit has been reached the sea is said to be "fully developed". In general, larger waves are more powerful but wave power is also determined by wave speed, wavelength, and water density. Oscillatory motion is highest at the surface and diminishes exponentially with depth. However, for standing waves (clapotis) near a reflecting coast, wave energy is also present as pressure oscillations at great depth, producing microseisms. These pressure fluctuations at greater depth are too small to be interesting from the point of view of wave power. The waves propagate on the ocean surface, and the wave energy is also transported horizontally with the group velocity. The mean transport rate of the wave energy through a vertical plane of unit width, parallel to a wave crest, is called the wave energy flux (or wave power, which must not be confused with the actual power generated by a wave power device). Wave power formula In deep water where the water depth is larger than half the wavelength, the wave energy flux is[a] P = \frac{\rho g^2}{64\pi} H_{m0}^2 T_e \approx \left(0.5 \frac{\text{kW}}{\text{m}^3 \cdot \text{s}} \right) H_{m0}^2\; T_e, with P the wave energy flux per unit of wave-crest length, Hm0 the significant wave height, Te the wave energy period, ρ the water density and g the acceleration by gravity. The above formula states that wave power is proportional to the wave energy period and to the square of the wave height. When the significant wave height is given in metres, and the wave period in seconds, the result is the wave power in kilowatts (kW) per metre of wavefront length.[5][6][7][8] Example: Consider moderate ocean swells, in deep water, a few km off a coastline, with a wave height of 3 m and a wave energy period of 8 seconds. Using the formula to solve for power, we get P \approx 0.5 \frac{\text{kW}}{\text{m}^3 \cdot \text{s}} (3 \cdot \text{m}^2) (8 \cdot \text{s}) \approx 12 \frac{\text{kW}}{\text{m}}, meaning there are 36 kilowatts of power potential per meter of wave crest. In major storms, the largest waves offshore are about 15 meters high and have a period of about 15 seconds. According to the above formula, such waves carry about 1.7 MW of power across each metre of wavefront. An effective wave power device captures as much as possible of the wave energy flux. As a result, the waves will be of lower height in the region behind the wave power device.

Chen W, Gao F, Meng X, et al. W2p: A high-power integrated generation unit for offshore wind power and ocean wave energy. Ocean Eng, 2016, 128:41-47. ocean engineering Abstract Energy resources of offshore wind and ocean wave are abundant, clean and renewable. Various technologies have been developed to utilize the two kinds of energy separately. We present a high-power integrated generation unit for offshore wind power and ocean wave energy (W2P). The unit includes that: (1) The wind wheel with retractable blades and the 3-DOF (degrees of freedom) mechanism with the hemispherical oscillating body are used to collect the irregular wind and wave power, respectively; (2) The energy conversion devices (ECDs) are utilized to convert mechanical energy from both the wind wheel and the 3-DOF mechanism into hydraulic energy; (3) The hydraulic energy is used to drive the hydraulic motors and electrical generators to produce electricity. Some analyses and experiments have been conducted to obtain the performance of the key components of the unit. Based on the layout method, the single row wind-wave power plant is established.

Advanced scientific buoys are being readied in Sequim Bay for deployment to measure the strength of winds off U.S coasts. The buoys are equipped with highly sophisticated meteorological and oceanographic equipment that will provide important data about the potential for development of offshore wind turbines to generate massive amounts of electrical power - equivalent to 25 nuclear power plants. The wind buoy research project is operated by the Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Sequim, WA. A report from Ed Evans of KSQM FM in Sequim.

Dong Energy recently completed the installation of Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm, the biggest Offshore Wind Farm in the UK and the first in the world to make commercial use of giant 6MW turbines with 75 metre blades. The whole project was a huge feat of engineering, that had taken years of planning and will provide 1000’s of homes across the UK with electricity. The Wind Farm was to be officially inaugurated on the 1st of July 2015. To mark this huge occasion STANDBY were approached by Counter Context, a communications agency based in Sheffield and asked to produce a film to mark the completion of the project. We were really excited to get stuck into the creative process for this project - creativity is at the heart of everything we do at STANDBY! We knew that their needed to be a huge focus on the visual spectacle of the Wind Farm, the location itself called for some stunning aerial shots to show off the scale of the project so we got in touch with the best in the business. We were also really keen to show the individuals who had worked to make this project become a reality, so therefore wanted to take an almost documentary style approach to the film, we chose to follow Ashley, a Wind Turbine engineer throughout a whole day maintaining the turbines from waking up in the morning, to returning home at night. The filming for this project took place over a number of days and took place across Hull and Grimsby on the East Coast where the Wind Farm is situated. This was the first time that Standby had completed an offshore shoot. After the shoots were complete, we set about the post production stage of the film and liaised with Counter Context on a number of different edits. We’re thrilled with how the whole project looks and feel the extra details such as the soundtrack and voiceover really pull the whole film together. enjoy www.STANDBYPRODUCTIONS.co.uk

Some people thought we were crazy when we put a giant wind turbine on top of a floating spar structure and towed it out to sea. But it turned out to be the future, and the future is now. This year we made a giant leap forward as we installed and started producing electricity from the world’s first floating wind farm. The 30 MW Hywind Scotland pilot park will demonstrate the feasibility of future commercial floating wind farms that could be more than four times the size. This will further increase the global market potential for offshore wind energy, contributing to realising Statoil’s ambition of profitable growth in renewable energy and other low-carbon solutions.
