rotor, 108-meter long blades, and a 39,000 m2 swept area.The 14 MW capacity allows one SG 14-222 DD machine able to provide enough energy to power approximately 18,000 average European households every year. Approximately 30 SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines could furthermore cover the annual electricity consumption of Bilbao, Spain, Siemens Gamesa said."Offshore is in our DNA,” says Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit. “Since we helped create the offshore wind industry in 1991, we’ve been determined to safely increase operational performance, minimize

cooling and operation in a tightly-controlled environment, data centers are among the major power consumers in the building sector.In addition, Singapore's tropical climate imposes a heavy energy burden on cooling in buildings. In 2018, data centers accounted for 7 per cent1 of the total annual electricity consumption in Singapore."About 37 per cent2 of the total energy consumed by data centers is used to cool IT equipment. Therefore, improving the efficiency of the cooling system can result in significant energy savings and reduce the carbon footprint of data centers. In this project, we aim

, Germany, the world's largest plant for offshore wind turbine nacelles.The annual energy production of one SG 10.0-193 DD is sufficient to supply about 10,000 European households with electricity. This means that an offshore wind park composed of 20 of these turbines would cover the annual electricity consumption of a city the size of Liverpool

units (DSUs) are fixed on the barge that will transport the platform's topside to its site offshore. These combat the destabilizing effects of adverse weather and sea conditions during transport.   The converter is designed to transmit 900 MW of wind power, which equates to the annual electricity consumption of one million German households. Trelleborg will begin fabrication of LMUs and DSUs with immediate effect and its solutions are scheduled for delivery in 2018. The entire project is due for completion in 2019

works.   Scheduled for completion in 2019, the COBRA cable is a new, over 350 kilometers long subsea DC connection (interconnector) that will create a direct link between the Dutch and Danish power grids. The cable will have a total capacity of 700 MW, which equivalents to the annual electricity consumption of 700,000 households.   TenneT CEO Mel Kroon commented, “Siemens and Prysmian are excellent partners to undertake the realization of this important project. One main purpose of the COBRA cable is to transport electricity between the Netherlands and Denmark. This will promote
