From worn to reborn – Remanufacturing wind turbine bearings
Bearing replacement is inevitable over time, however, there is a more economical and sustainable option — remanufacturing. We have previously explored the concept and its benefits, and in this article, we outline the steps involved in the process.
Mining – How the industry is getting greener with wind
The mining industry is not exactly considered a pioneer when it comes to sustainability. But the industry is also key to the energy transition – after all, green technology relies heavily on certain metals and other materials. Wind energy could solve the dilemma.
Wind innovations – Part 1 – Three wind technologies you should know about
As wind energy continues to be one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources worldwide, the possibilities in that area are endless. Many creative thinkers are coming up with various alternative innovations that could turn the tide.
It’s getting windy! – The offshore industry is gaining ground
As economies grow, so does pollution. Before 2020, this was a commonly accepted fact. Not anymore, though. During the COVID-19 pandemic, global CO2 emissions dropped seven percent – paving the way for a new concept of growth relying on renewable energies. Offshore wind is facing a worldwide boom.
Next-generation jack-up vessels – A Norwegian collaboration to satisfy offshore demand
As a general rule: a taller turbine catches more wind and generates more power. That said, transporting such vast structures to offshore locations is no mean feat, especially given a lack of vessels to carry out the job. This is a joint-sector issue that, until now, remained unsolved.
