Siemens Gamesa's 11-MW prototype beats Danish output record
This last weekend, Siemens Gamesa broke the output record for a wind turbine on Danish soil when its SG 11.0-193 DD prototype generated 266 MWh in 24 hours. Already next year, that achievement stands to be superseded when the OEM installs the prototype of its new monster machine, the SG 14-22, at Danish wind testing center Østerild Klitplanteage.
The Swedish power company will not build any more new onshore wind farms in Denmark and now intends to divest its current development projects totaling several hundred megawatts. The utility insists that its move is not due to many years of domestic obstacles.
Despite a reduced deficit in the fourth quarter, rig operator Borr Drilling exits 2020 with another deficit of more than USD 300m. The company, which recently secured approval for a rescue plan, still projects a stronger market.
