GE’s 2.2-2.4MW, 107m rotor wind turbine is an advanced evolution of the 1.x series, providing a 35% increase in Annual Energy Production (AEP) over its predecessor, the 1.85-87 (at a 2.4 rating). Designed for medium wind speeds, the 2.2-2.4MW turbine provides a 51% increase in swept area with the 107m rotor, and an extra 350-450 kW output at rated wind speed compared to the 1.85-87 turbine, improving project economics for wind developers. GE’s proprietary Advanced Loads Control combines drive train sensors with Mark* VIe turbine controller capabilities to individually pitch blades and improve loads handling performance.
The Hyflux Standard Membrane Systems (SMS) comprise Ultrafiltration (UF), Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO), Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO) as well as Low Pressure Reverse Osmosis (LPRO) systems in compact designs, promising high reliability and energy savings. These systems are pre-engineered for ease of installation.
AGL Energy Limited (AGL) today announced the launch of what will be the world’s largest virtual power plant (VPP), ultimately involving 1,000 connected batteries installed in homes and businesses in South Australia, providing 5 MW of peaking capacity and offering customers the opportunity to save on their energy bills.
Partnering with AGL in the demonstration project is the Federal Government via its renewables funding agency, The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), and leading US-based energy storage and management company, Sunverge.
GE Renewable Energy presents the intelligent Condition Monitoring System (iCMS) solution, the next frontier of efficient water power at Hydrovision Tradeshow in Minneapolis, stand #305.
GE’s new iCMS uses machine learning to turn monitoring and maintenance process into profits.
iCMS joins lineup of GE digital solutions collectively transforming the energy sector by increasing efficiencies across markets and power sources.
The new Siemens SWT-3.15-142 wind turbine for low wind conditions features two premieres at the same time: For the first time, all advantages of the Siemens direct drive technology are available in a dedicated IEC Class IIIA wind turbine.
Kohler ®Generators is introducing a new 30 kW standby generator, designed for large homes and small businesses. The KOHLER 30RCL, which will quickly restore power following an outage, features a robust 1,800-rpm liquid-cooled KOHLER® engine and patented noise-reduction technology that keeps sound levels to a minimum.
Siemens presents its new wind turbine model SWT-3.6-130 for IEC class II sites. Especially designed for medium wind sites and based on proven Direct Drive technology, the latest addition to the portfolio delivers 3.6 megawatts (MW) of electric power.
1366 technologies unveiled the first of a series of R&D achievements that have the potential to change the way the solar industry thinks about wafer features. The company’s proprietary Direct Wafer® process has demonstrated the ability to grow a three dimensional wafer or a thin wafer with a thick border, an advancement impossible with conventional ingot-based production technologies. The 3D feature further reduces the amount of silicon required for each wafer without sacrificing strength, durability or performance. It also allows the dominant crystalline silicon PV supply chain to lower costs while leveraging its existing infrastructure.
