Astom built the biggest offshore wind turbine in the world

christine deniel - 14-mai-2015 11:14:56

    The Haliade ™ 150-6MW responds to the stricts constraints imposed by the marine environment. This new generation of offshore wind turbine, with a rated output of 6 MW, will be able to supply in electricity the equivalent of 5,000 homes annually. Simple, robust, and effective, it will improve the competitiveness of offshore wind turbines. With a 170 metres height and 1,500 tonnes with each blade measuring 73.5 metres, this first Haliade ™  posed in the North Sea is the largest and biggest wind turbine in the world. This ALSTOMs stroke of genius combines effectiveness, simplicity, yield and strength.   By 2020, half of the produced energy will be renewable; the producers need to "go green".      


Electric consumption in France

  Balance French electric 2014 renewables grow and cover nearly 20% of French consumption balance electric french 2014clarification of the regulatory system as well as more favourable economic provisions in 2014 allow renewable energy to pursue their development. The situation of the wind and photovol taique improves with nearly 1 900 MW installed additional-owners in 2014. The France includes now more than 9 100 MW of wind and near 5 300 MW of photovoltaics. The electrical energy produced by non-hydraulic (28 TWh) renewable-lables energy exceeds the produc-tion of thermal fossil for the first time in 2014. More than half comes from wind generation, the rest is divided between photovoltaic and biomass.The maximum of wind production has reached the 27th decem - BER 2014 for a little more power of 7 000 MW, or 80% of wind power installed. The maximum of photovoltaic production reached on May 17, 2014 at 1: 30 p.m. for a capacity of 3 700 MW. Such levels had never been achieved before.In addition, water availability is rather high this year, because of a high volume of rainfall: level of hydraulic production (68.2 TWh) is the strongest of the decade after 2013, which was exceptional.

French Industrial groups Alstom and DCNS working alongside to build a floating wind turbine.

Christine Deniel - 14-oct.-2014 17:22:47

Alstom and DCNS signed a contract on October 13 for the development and manufacturing of a 6MW floating wind turbine under the name SeaReed. The two companies will join their knowledge of the industry to fashion a semi-submersible floating device provided by DCNS and combine it with an existing Alstom offshore wind turbine. The two companies will firstly work on adapting the two devices and setting it up. The project already received a public financing of 6 million euros from future investments programs.    


Veolia and EDF finalize their agreement about Dalkia

Christine Deniel - 05-août-2014 15:37:14

The two French companies operating in the energy industry, EDF and Veolia, have just finalized the agreement signed the 25 of March 2014 on their joint subsidiary: Dalkia, which is a leading player in the field of energy services. As part of this agreement, EDF handles the entire business of Dalkia in France while international operations are taken over by Veolia. This transaction, announced in October 2013, was subject to clearances from competition authorities which it was obtained in late June 2014. http://www.euro-energie.com/edf-et-veolia-finalisent-leur-accord-sur-dalkia-n-4507


Blue Shark Power System received a grant from the Aquitaine region

Blue Shark Power System has been granted with € 618.760 from the Aquitaine Regional Council for the realization of an innovative tidal developed in collaboration with the Couach shipyard for its industrialization. The Company is developing an innovative hydroelectric engine at Blanquefort Ecoparc (France). The developing technology is ultra-competitive; they announced a price/MW ratio of 4-5 times lower than competing technologies. The new technology has a real commercial interest. The company ensures that several countries in Europe and beyond signed (Brazil) or are being signed as Shanghai. It represents a potential of sales of thousands of turbines.    They also answer at a call for expressions of interest for pilot farms of tidal turbines in Normandie, especially for a farm of four machines.      Source: http://objectifaquitaine.latribune.fr/innovation/2014-05-19/blue-shark-power-system-l-innovation-dont-l-aquitaine-attend-beaucoup.html


Areva, shortlisted to tender for the supply of offshore wind energy along with GDF Suez for the second time

Christine Deniel - 14-mai-2014 10:49:57

  The world’s leading French nuclear group, Areva, is pleased to have been shortlisted to tender for the supply of offshore wind energy along with GDF Suez for the second time: two large wind farms located at Tréport (Seine-maritime) and Noirmoutier (Loire-Atlantique).    The French minister of Ecology, Ségolène Royal, announced that the consortium GDF Suez-Areva will be in charge of its implementation and maintenance. This decision strengthens the company’s position as a leading player in the renewable energy industry. The contract will have a very positive impact, nearly 6 000 direct and indirect qualified jobs will be created. Moreover to carry out these projects Areva and its partners plan to create six factories in France.
