NRG Systems And RK Systems To Commission India’s Tallest Lattice Met Tower

RK Systems created the 150m tower for one of India’s leading clean energy Independent Power Producers. The decision to commission the tower was spurred by the growing proliferation of taller turbines. The company overcame a number of design challenges to erect the 150m tower. To keep the tower stable, secure, and under the 250kg weight limit, a design was introduced, that used square tubes – a first in India. According to Arun Mehra, Director of RK Systems, “In response to the increase in hub heights, and in order to perform accurate resource assessment campaigns that reduce uncertainty, it has become necessary to capture data at these heights.”

Indian Firm Wins 1.8GW Sweihan Order; The Largest Solar PV Project In The World

Indian company Sterling and Wilson has won the contract for the world’s largest single location solar PV project. The Sweihan project in Abu Dhabi is for turnkey EPC as well as O&M; and is jointly developed by Japanese investment firm Marubeni, Chinese solar company Jinko Solar, and Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA). It will deliver a capacity of 1177 MWp, surpassing the current largest 850 MWp single location plant in China. In March 2017, Marubeni and Jinko had signed a 25-year PPA with ADWEA on a tariff of $0.0242/kWh, making Sweihan also the plant with the lowest electricity price so far.

Nordex Scores Triple Win In France, Also Installs Largest Turbine To Date

The Nordex Group has been awarded three new contracts covering a total capacity of 36 megawatts in France. Different project developers and power station operators have placed orders for the installation of a total of 13 N131/3000, N117/3000 and N117/2400 turbines. The company will be installing its N131/3000 turbine in France for the first time. With a rotor diameter of 131 metres, it will be the largest turbine installed in France to date. The turbine will be able to generate large energy yields even in light wind regions and fits perfectly to the site conditions thanks to its very low acoustic output levels. With an installed capacity of over 1.7 GW, Nordex is one of the market leaders in France, servicing its customers’ wind power systems via a dense network of 15 service stations. Work on the wind farms is to commence this year.
