Every time a drop of rain hits a wind turbine blade it contributes to a process that ends in small cracks being formed in the leading edge of the blade that eventually ruin the coating on the blade. The bigger the drop, the worse the damage, reports DR Nyheder.
The Danish government said on Friday it wanted to scrap plans to build five offshore wind farms as their output would become too expensive for consumers.
Due to harsh weather, A2SEA's installation vessel, Sea Worker, has capsized off the coast of Nymindegab, Denmark. The evacuation took place on 27-Jan-2016 at approximately 03:10am off the North Sea coast by a lifeboat from Hvide Sande. The vessel was was in transit to Esbjerg.
Offshore wind market service provider A2SEA has confirmed that its jack-up barge Sea Worker ran aground early Wednesday morning off the coast of Nymindegab, south of Hvide Sande in Denmark.
The 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm is operational again after the replacement of two parts of the subsea cable connecting it to the grid was completed faster than expected.
Two hours after midnight on October 19, the cable to Dong Energy’s 209-MW Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farm in Danish waters also went out of service due to an error. Energinet.dk has set November 25 as the tentative date for the repair.
The replacement of parts of the subsea cable connecting the 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm to the Danish grid is expected to take place October 26 and November 23, if the weather permits.
The replacement of parts of the subsea cable for the 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm in Danish waters will not commence at end-September, as was previously planned.
The 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm in Danish waters has restarted feeding electricity to the grid after shutting down a month ago because of a subsea cable fault.

Dong Energy is to repair and upgrade all 273 blades at its six-year-old 209MW Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farm in Denmark. The Danish company said it would be removing the components from 91 Siemens 2.3MW machines and bringing them to shore to tackle the “retrofit” work.
The Danish climate and energy minister has warned that the government may drop future offshore projects if the price of the power they produce does not come down significantly. The minister said that the energy from Anholt is too expensive The minister said that the energy from Anholt is too expensive
Only a handful of companies have the qualifications and equipment to remove seafloor explosives -- the special ship required for it costs up to €200,000 per day ...the turbines are currently being powered by a diesel generator, because they need to continue moving to avoid gathering rust. Given the latest developments, Riffgat may be an energy drain, instead of an energy producer, for quite some time.
