PNE WIND AG completes construction of the Zernitz II wind farm

Comprising of three Vestas V90 wind turbines

Cuxhaven, 16. April 2013 - The wind farm project developer, PNE WIND AG, has

completed the construction of the "Zernitz II" wind farm in Brandenburg
comprising of three Vestas V90 wind turbines with a hub height of 95 meters
and a total nominal capacity of 6 MW. The wind turbines are already
operating.

In addition, PNE WIND AG has begun construction on another wind farm. The
"Langwedel II" project in Lower Saxony will be constructed with four Vestas

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
