DENMARK: A busy day for Europe's offshore wind industry at Esbjerg Port in Denmark, with no fewer than seven jack-up vessels in harbour, loading up with turbine towers, nacelles, blades and rotor hubs.
GERMANY: Winergy's gearbox for the 8MW Adwen offshore turbine is the largest and, in terms of input torque, the most highly rated yet seen. Eize de Vries was granted exclusive access to the unit and its production facilities ahead of its unveiling at WindEnergy Hamburg on 27 September.
WORLDWIDE: We have omitted some of the large turbines where progress has stalled, such as the 7MW Samsung and MHI Sea Angel machines, but the ten turbines described here are either in production or scheduled to start soon.
UNITED STATES: It has been a long time coming, but the US's first offshore wind project is now under construction. Deepwater Wind CEO Jeff Grybowski talks about the development of the 30MW Block Island and the company's plans for further growth in the sector.
