World's most powerful turbines start generating at Burbo Bank

World's most powerful turbines start generating at Burbo Bank

Wind turbines have already more than doubled in size since Dong Energy constructed the first phase of Burbo Bank in 2007 with 3.7MW structures.

Dong Energy CEO Henrik Poulsen said the Burbo Bank Extension reflects the rapid innovation coming through in the offshore wind industry.

Wind farms in the United Kingdom enjoyed their highest ever quarterly output, generating 11.3 terawatt hours (TWh) of renewable energy over the quarter, an increase of 10 per cent on the same time a year earlier.

"Pushing innovation in this way reduces the cost of electricity from offshore wind and will help to advance the offshore wind industry across the world".

White House: Trump staffer's Western Wall comment does not reflect administration policy
It was not the first time a member of the Trump administration referred to "Palestine", which the USA does not recognize. In a move unrecognized pretty much by the rest of the world, Israel declared Jerusalem al-Quds its capital in 1980s.


The turbines were ordered for the Burbo Bank Extension in 2015, and two test units were erected off the coast of Esbjerg the following year.

Dong Energy is also developing an operations facility in Merseyside, which will support Burbo Bank Extension and the existing 90MW Burbo Bank wind farm in the region.

Construction of the Burbo Bank Extension, located 7km off Liverpool Bay, has been managed from DONG Energy's facilities at the Cammell Laird site in Birkenhead by a team of around 90 workers. "We are proud to be able to provide a good return to the pension savers and at the same time make a positive difference".

In celebration of this, the company has built the largest ever LEGO wind turbine - receiving a Guinness World Record for its efforts - and is challenging children across the globe to create their own renewable energy solutions.

Still no place for Benzema in France squad for friendlies
Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe is in the France squad to face England this summer, but Real Madrid's Karim Benzema misses out. " Sex tape, he just had to tell the truth about what really happened, and he would not have had all of this ".


However, Benj Sykes, the United Kingdom boss for Dong Energy wind power business said: "If you wind the clock back four or five years this scale of technology was considered very ambitious".

Each turbine is 195m tall - 15m higher than the London Gherkin office tower - and has a swept area greater than the London Eye.

"We see children as our role models and as we take action in reducing our environmental impact as a company, we will also continue to work to inspire children around the world by engaging them in environmental and social issues", added Bali Padda.

Microsoft Renews Scalebound Trademark
In fact, Windows Central says that its sources say that " Scalebound is not in development by Microsoft or a 'trusted team'". None of this means Scalebound couldn't return in some form in the future, but it's not on the cards for the time being.
