EGP scores 424MW in South Africa wins

Italy’s Enel Green Power (EGP) has won 425MW of projects in South Africa.

The projects were awarded within the fourth phase of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme and cover three wind farms.

Two of these, the 142MW Oyster Bay and 141MW Nxuba projects, will enter service in 2017. Another 142MW plant, Karusa, is due to come online the year after.

Senvion targets low-wind market

Suzlon’s German subsidiary Senvion has unveiled a new turbine designed for low-wind sites.

The 3.2MW, 122-metre rotor diameter 3.2M122 should deliver a 2% to 3% extra yield increase compared to the company’s 3MW 3.0M122 model, the company said.

The machine comes with Senvion’s Next Electrical System (NES), which was unveiled this week at the Hannover Messe 2015 industrial technology fair.

Enercon and Saft in energy storage first

German turbine maker Enercon is partnering in an energy storage first for Europe, battery firm Saft has claimed.

The two companies are working on the commercial deployment of lithium-ion battery storage for a wind farm on the Faroe Islands.

The project will see two Saft Intensium Max containerised battery systems storing up to 2.3MW to enhance grid stability for the output from a 12MW wind farm at Húsahagi with 13 Enercon machines.

Mainstream: cheapest UK offshore power

Mainstream Renewable Power says it will “produce the cheapest electricity ever generated from a UK offshore wind farm.”

The claim relates to Mainstream's 448MW Neart na Gaoitheproject, which earlier this year won a UK government contract for difference with a strike price of £114.39/MWh.

Mainstream says the project’s low costs are thanks to the use of a new Offshore Transmission Module design from Siemens and a High Wind Boom Lock system that will let engineering partner GeoSea install turbine components at sea.

Tories to cut onshore wind subsidies

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has unveiled plans to scrap onshore wind subsidies if he wins next month’s general election.

The pledge is part of a UK Conservative party manifesto designed to woo votes in what promises to be a photo-finish election result at the polls on 7th May.

Among other proposals that could affect the wind industry are a promise to continue backing shale-gas fracking and a commitment to hold a referendum on leaving the European Union before 2018.
