Equinor begins construction of world’s largest floating offshore wind project in Norway

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享OffshoreWind.biz:The construction has started on the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm, Hywind Tampen, at Kværner Stord in Norway, Equinor said.Kværner’s assignment will include building eleven floating concrete hulls for the Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines on the 88 MW Hywind Tampen.“Eighty percent of the world’s offshore wind resources are located in deep water areas and are available for floating offshore wind projects. If we can use projects like Hywind Tampen to make floating offshore wind competitive with other forms of energy, the technology will be able to deliver large-scale renewable power and contribute to a more sustainable global energy supply. A floating offshore wind market will also open up considerable industrial opportunities for Norwegian industry,” [said Equinor’s president and CEO Eldar Sætre.]Equinor’s ambition is for floating offshore wind to be competitive with other forms of energy by 2030.“By using larger turbines, concrete substructures, new technology and a new assembly method, we’re well on our way toward delivering on the objective to reduce costs by more than 40% compared with Hywind Scotland. This is an important step to establish floating wind as a sustainable power supply alternative,” said Hywind Tampen project director Olav-Bernt Haga. “If more major floating offshore wind projects are realised in the future, it will be possible to reduce costs even further, and we could see a development in cost reductions equivalent to the one we’ve seen in fixed foundation offshore wind.”The Hywind Tampen project will be the first floating offshore wind project to supply renewable power for oil and gas installations. The wind farm is expected to cover about 35 percent of the annual power needs on the five platforms Snorre A and B and Gullfaks A, B and C. Located about 140 kilometres off the Norwegian coast in water depths of between 260 and 300 metres, Hywind Tampen will reduce emissions from the Gullfaks and Snorre fields by more than 200,000 tonnes per year, which corresponds to annual emissions from 100,000 private vehicles, Equinor said.[Adnan Durakovic]More: Construction starts on world’s largest floating offshore wind farm Equinor begins construction of world’s largest floating offshore wind project in Norwaylast_img read more

Cluster of errors raises no concerns for Justin Turner or Dodgers

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “He’s a made a lot of good plays as well,” Roberts said. “Honestly, no one prepares like Justin. It’s something that just kind of … no one’s more frustrated than he is about it probably. I don’t want to give it too much thought. It’s baseball and I still trust the defense. I really do. We all do.”Most defensive metrics show Turner having a slightly down year defensively after being a Gold Glove finalist two years ago. The fractured left wrist he suffered in spring training was certainly responsible for a subpar offensive first half. But Turner said the wrist feels “fine” and is not a factor in his recent defensive mistakes.Roberts endorses that.“I don’t think so,” he said. “If you look at some of the plays, it’s a play to the left, it’s an exchange kind of thing. As I recall when his wrist was bothering him it was the backhand play that was getting him. A lot of the (recent) plays have been to the forehand so I don’t think there’s a correlation.”SHORT RESTThe question of whether the Dodgers will ask their ace, Clayton Kershaw, to pitch on short rest comes up every postseason. With the possibility of play-in-games and wild-card scenarios hanging in the air, it has come up sooner than usual. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco PHOENIX — Justin Turner doesn’t offer an explanation, telling reporters to “call it what you want” – and he probably shouldn’t have to.Six times in the past 11 games, the Dodgers’ third baseman has bobbled a ball, flubbed a grounder or otherwise failed to make a play. It is a cluster that represents more than half of his error total for the season (10). And it is surrounded by a far greater number of exceptional plays that he did make (three in Monday’s game alone).“I don’t know what there is to make of it,” Turner said. “I came in and picked a ball on the short hop and couldn’t get it out of my glove.”That was Tuesday’s error. The others have been equally innocent taken individually and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts sees no pattern or reason for concern either. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season But not with Kershaw. Roberts said Wednesday he has not spoken with Kershaw about the possibility of pitching on short rest next week if the Dodgers find themselves needing to win their way into a Division Series.“No. I’ve spoken to Clayton about his start on Saturday. That’s about it,” Roberts said. “Then whatever situation presents itself we’ll have a conversation.“It’s not even on our radar right now.”In winning the past five National League West titles, the Dodgers never faced the kind of do-or-die scenario on the final weekend of the season that they face this year. But the Dodgers started Kershaw on short rest five times during the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 playoffs (including once after his memorable relief appearance to close out the Washington Nationals in the opening round two years ago).The Dodgers will hold left-hander Rich Hill back this weekend for possible use in a play-in game or wild-card game.MAEDA MINDDodgers reliever Kenta Maeda had an upsetting start to his week.On Monday, a fastball got away from him and hit Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker in the face. Walker suffered facial fractures and underwent surgery to wire his jaw shut. Maeda was visibly shaken, walking to home plate to check on Walker as he was treated by the Diamondbacks’ training staff.Then on Tuesday, he gave up a walk-off home run to the only batter he faced.But Roberts said he did not feel the need to talk to Maeda to shore up his confidence or check on his state of mind.“Obviously, it’s a very unfortunate situation with what happened to Christian Walker,” Roberts said. “I’m sure he feels very bad about that, understands that there was no intent. But that doesn’t change the result. I don’t think it carried over into last night.“He’s down tonight because it’s two in a row (that he’s pitched). But I’m not having him down because I think it’s a psychological thing. … With everything that’s transpired the last couple days, I think he’s fine.”UP NEXTThe Dodgers are off Thursday.Dodgers (LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu, 6-3, 2.00 ERA) at Giants (LHP Madison Bumgarner, 6-6, 3.20 ERA), Friday, 7:15 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only)Related Articleslast_img read more
