While the political uncertainty of post 2020 is hindering its growth by putting on hold or delaying many projects, the wind industry -including the offshore wind with a combined capacity of 6,040MW fully grid connected in European waters in 58 wind farms across 10 countries- continues to be the...
Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG)FG), a leading engineering and fabrication contractor, announces the opening of their new fabrication facility in the south of Poland, Opole.
National Grid has confirmed that a record-breaking amount of clean electricity was generated by wind power in the UK on November 29 – achieving more than 6 gigawatts (over 6,000 megawatts) for the first time.
The 100th wind turbine has been successfully installed at the Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay.
With an expected compound average growth rate of 28.3% from 2013-2020, the growth for the offshore wind industry remains solid. Short term demand in Europe – the main market region for offshore wind – is set to stabilise pending policy clarification and implementation.

After completing wave tank tests at Cehipar, Madrid, Langlee Wave Power confirmed a 80% higher efficiency of its 132 kW Langlee Robusto wave energy device compared to the previous design.
Wind energy production is fast expanding in remote areas where wind turbines need to work under extreme climatic conditions. Such remote locations very often have profitable wind conditions and are not affected by the ‘not in my backyard syndrome’. On the other hand, the climatic conditions can be...
The offshore wind energy sector needs up to EUR123 billion in investment between now and 2020 if it is to meet its target of 40 GW of installed capacity, and the financial community is able to invest this amount, new research shows.
Teachers from 13 schools in the North East have been selected to take part in an innovative education programme where they will use interactive lessons and workshops to raise student awareness about career opportunities in offshore wind energy.
