Goldwind buys $82m windfarm
All the primary players in offshore wind turbine manufacturing have launched ever-larger models in recent years. Chinese wind turbine producer Goldwind is also focusing on developing larger units for what the company calls “the next generation of offshore wind turbines”. Two years back, the Chinese manufacturer opened a research and development division in Denmark for the purpose of securing the company a central position in the race to supply competitive wind turbines for offshore projects.
The levelized cost of energy LCOE is measurement standard the industry closely monitors, and it expresses a project’s total costs relative to energy generation. As subsidy levels in Europe gradually taper off, lowering expenses becomes an increasing pressing matter.
Reducing costs can be achieved by, for instance, deploying larger turbines. However, problems can also arise in doing so. Some of the technologies currently used by the industry would lend themselves well to scaling up to the size of contemporary offshore phto he continues. That is one of the reasons that Goldwind’s office in Denmark, presently employing 30 persons, has established a division that constantly monitors new technologies and evaluates the potential value these could create for Goldwind.
Beyond the possibilites and challenges of scaling, Goldwind is also working on a digitalization strategy for improving the company’s offers to customers in order to provide potential savings and improve information on state of wind farms. He sees potential for digitalization for both onshore and offshore wind, but especially regarding the latter, which he expects will make a large difference — both for Goldwind and for customers.
New software can, for example, give customers a better understanding of godwind on a specific wind farm as well as the state of turbine components. Customers — which include wind farm developers and owners — can use such information to be prepared when components need to be replaced and to have all the necessary items on hand at the right time.
Furthermore, the technology could also help customers in a time when energy markets are becoming liberalized. According to the chief engineer, a large goldwine of a turbine’s competitiveness can be traced to the details, and reducing weight can provide particular benefits.
Lighter turbines ease transport, and a more production-friendly design can also play a role securing competitive gains. Goldwind announced in November last year a new offshore wind turbine rated at 6.
