Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) won an order to supply 20 sets of 2 MW wind turbines from DaeMyoung GEC for Yeongam wind farm in South Korea. The work scope also includes installation supervision and commissioning and, additionally, a long-term maintenance service agreement is in discussion for signature soon. The turbines, designed for low wind conditions, are scheduled for delivery in July this year. Finalization of the wind farm is planned for November. According to HHI, the 40 MW Yeongam wind farm will be Korea’s largest onshore wind farm built with wind turbines supplied by a Korean company. It will generate enough electricity for approximately 30,000 households.With its total annual production capacity of 600 MW, HHI, South Korea’s biggest wind turbine supplier, has also recently installed combined 24 MW wind turbines in Taebaek wind farm and Changjuk wind farm in Gangwon Province, Korea. Furthermore, HHI plans to install a 5.5 MW prototype offshore wind turbine northwest off the coast of Jeju Island by the end of this year.

Only includes onshore wind capacity. Total fully commissioned onshore wind capacity in 2018 was 45.4GW. SGRE is Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (Source: BloombergNEF)

Developers commissioned a little over 45GW of onshore wind turbines globally in 2018 compared with 47GW a year earlier. Just four manufacturers accounted for more than half, or 57%, of the machines deployed: Denmark’s Vestas, China’s Goldwind, GE Renewable Energy of the U.S. and Spain’s Siemens Gamesa.

The biggest solar district heating system in Germany will begin construction shortly. Arcon-Sunmark is responsible for building the turnkey project on behalf of Stadtwerke Ludwigsburg-Kornwestheim. The solar heating system will be operational by the end of 2019.

In the first half of 2019, solar, wind and other renewable sources accounted for 44 percent of the electricity consumed in Germany, marking a record high. Preliminary calculations by the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the German Federal Association of Energy and Water Management (BDEW) yielded this figure. Renewables had accounted for 39 percent of electricity consumption in the first half of 2018.
