Siemens brings offshore wind power plant in China online

May 31, 2012


The Jiangsu Rudong Offshore Wind Power Plant began operation in May 2012 and is Siemens' first order for offshore wind power outside Europe. Siemens has installed 21 SWT-2.3-101 wind turbines off the coast of the Rudong district in the East China Sea having a total output of approximately 50 megawatts (MW). Completion of the project is an important step for Siemens in China's fast-growing wind energy market. The customer is Jiangsu Longyuan Offshore Wind Power Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of one of the world's largest wind energy project developers, China Longyuan Power Group Corporation Ltd.

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.
