• LCoE for offshore wind power below eight euro cents per kWh by 2025
• Levers include digitalization and innovative foundations
• Competitive energy supply and climate protection
In early June, 2016, eleven members of the wind industry association Wind Europe issued a joined declaration containing the target of making offshore wind energy more cost competitive with conventional power generation within the coming years. At the Global Offshore Wind 2016 conference and exhibition in Manchester, England, Siemens as one of the first companies in the business is showcasing its commitment to lower the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) for offshore wind power. Siemens' offshore win
The Boom Lock© system by High Wind increases wind limits and accelerates installation processes of increasingly larger wind turbine components.
Zwijndrecht, Belgium, 23 June 2016.
LM Wind Power and Adwen announced earlier this week the world's longest blade, an 88.4-metre blade specifically designed for Adwen's 8MW turbine. LM Wind Power's CEO Marc de Jong called it an extraordinary example of industrialised innovation.
Innovation will not stand still, however. This latest impressive development is just another step on the clear path towards bigger turbines, which are seen as crucial to the industry meeting its LCoE goals.
Yet as technology innovation leads to larger blades and turbines, the g
Global Maritime Part of 12-Member Consortium With Project Objective to Reduce Costs in Wave Energy Development
London, UK; June 15 2016: Global Maritime Consultancy & Engineering, a provider of marine warranty, dynamic positioning and engineering services to the offshore sector, is to provide mooring and risk management support to the European Union's OPERA (Open Sea Operating Experience to Reduce Wave Energy Cost) project.
Global Maritime is part of a 12-member consortium led by TECNALIA (the first privately funded applied research and technological development center in Spain) for the three and a half year program with the objective being to progress offshore wave energy de
Leading European O&M service provider for offshore wind market changes name to ZITON

Healthy H1 construction pipeline sees medium wind manufacturer complete ten turbine installations by June, with a further nine turbines consented and under construction
28th June 2016 - Medium-scale wind turbine manufacturer Norvento has announced the successful completion of ten new turbine installations throughout the UK in the first half of 2016. A healthy order pipeline for the industry-leading nED100 100kW turbines has seen a further two sites enter construction in the same period, with another seven fully consented turbine sites across Scotland and Wales awaiting installation in the second half of the year, weather permitting.
This new construction activity is an indication of the ongoing ability of the medium wind sector to support th
