How dangerous is wind power for animals and humans? This question is the construction of wind turbines in Denmark almost stopped as the "Welt am Sonntag" reported. Also in Germany there is growing skepticism about wind power projects.
How close can wind turbines be sited near back in inhabited localities? Reports of adverse health noise emissions from wind turbines in Denmark already have led to a dramatic slowdown in the pace of expansion.
This is the second time that the wind park has gone offline due to a cable fault. On September 30, 2014, the plant was shut down for seven days after the onshore part of the power cable short-circuited.
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.
Korsager told Børsen the strategy served a number of purposes. “We solve the problem of unsellable properties in peripheral regions,” she said.
"There was a loud bang and then one of the blades span off, and shortly afterwards the gearbox's housing fell to the ground," Henrik Nielsen, one of the officials at the scene.
The blades and gearbox have been spun off a wind turbine in western Jutland after a malfunction allowed it to reach to dangerous speeds in high winds. ..."We cannot get close to it until the wind dies down,” Oluf Jakobsen, from the local Morsø municipality explained on Friday morning. “There’s nothing we can do but sit and wait for the outcome."
Wind Refugees: They can not sleep and want to move or buy new homes to get away from the large wind turbines. Politicians want better protections forthe neighbors and will be reviewing the rules. Neighbours of large wind turbines are fleeing their homes because emissions, especially from low-frequency noise, is so great that they can no longer endure to remain in their homes.
At the end of 2010, the company changed its accounting procedures, with the claimants in the case asserting that the changes hid elements of the company's poor performance. It said this lead to an inflation of Vestas' share price.
The former executives are accused, among other charges, of using their positions at the company to make private side-deals in the wind turbine business, which is in direct violation of Vestas's corporate policy and Danish and German law.
The judgment is significant as it granted compensation after the erection of the wind turbines. This is contrary to the main rule in the Promoting Renewable Energy Act; however,both the city court and the high court found sufficient legal authority under the act to admit the claim after the erection of the wind turbines.
The owner of the nursery at Gislinge fears for his employees' health because of low frequency noise from wind turbines.
In itself, one can question the management’s motives for firing a professor who has frequently been critical of the noise calculations made for wind turbines, when Aalborg University at the same time is trying hard to expand cooperation with wind turbine industry.
DTU's Department of Wind Energy is in charge of construction and operation of the National Test Centre for Large Wind Turbines at Østerild, and we hardly reveal a national secret by thinking aloud, that Professor Henrik Møller's research‐based opinions about low‐frequency noise from large wind turbines may have been on a collision course with his academic competitors at the Technical University.
Eskild Holm Nielsen says he will not comment on individual cases but consistently refutes that Henrik Møller’s critical messages and articles in relation to the wind power industry have anything to do with the firing.
The Danish financial crimes office’s 18-month investigation into a former Vestas head of finance, Henrik Nørremark, has taken a dramatic turn and has been expanded to include a number of other former Vestas bosses.
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
Denmark’s government mustered enough votes to let Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) buy a stake in state-owned Dong Energy A/S after resistance to the deal prompted one of the ruling coalition’s three parties to quit.
Denmark has a largely state-owned company called Dong Energy (which evidently is not a funny name in Danish) that its center-left government wants to partially sell to Goldman Sachs. This is prompting a massive popular and political backlash that's threatening to bring the governing coalition down.
The incident involved a single V90-3.0 MW wind turbine, which uses 44-meter-long blades. Two of the blades were damaged ...A developer named Hojstrup Vind ApS owns the wind farm, which features four V90-3.0 MW turbines. The machines were commissioned in December 2013,
