Bauer to bring in Engineering Expertise to support Scale-up of the Seawater Energy and Agriculture System
SNC-Lavalin (TSX:SNC) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to form a joint venture with ABB for the delivery of substation projects globally at 66 kV AC and above.
New Zealand leads the world in zero emission renewable grid electricity now at 85%. With a nice balance between geothermal, hydroelectric, unusually continuous wind power and some solar, the country has less intermittency of green power than most.
Dilemma adds to headwinds for major utilities; new limits affect 108 plants in particular; implications for investors, with gas and renewables emerging as preferred power-generation fuels
In the long term, wind energy is the most important and economic renewable energy source in the field of electricity. Many offshore wind farms that are planned or currently under construction are located in the North and Baltic Seas, such as the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) project off the northeastern coast of Scotland. From 2019, 84 turbines will generate 588 megawatts of electricity over an area of around 130 square kilometers – enough electricity to supply 450,000 homes. Bauer Renewables Ltd., a subsidiary of Bauer Spezialtiefbau GmbH, will be involved in the foundation work with an underwater drilling rig specially designed for use on the high seas in order to relief drill the foundation piles.
Work on the tallest dam in the world has begun. Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon inaugurated the event at Rogun, a dam that will be 335 metres tall and built by Salini Impregilo Group with 74 million cubic metres of earth, rock and an impermeable core, by personally diverting the flow of the Vakhsh River.
- Pumped storage plants add the necessary flexibility to energy systems, in order to integrate renewable energies reliably
- The combination of storage system, reserve power and flexibility turn pumped storage plants into genuine “multi-function power stations”
- “Pumped storage plants are the backbone of the Energy Transition”, Voith-CEO Lienhard says.
