From Waste to Wind on 3D Printing Wind Turbines Using Plastic Waste

In recent years, wind power has been developing around the world in order to provide a more sustainable alternative for electricity production. In the US for example, total annual electricity generation from wind energy increased from 6 billion kilowatthours (kWh) in 2000 to about 380 billion kWh in 2021. ThisContinue Reading

Maintaining the Durability of Gas Turbines in a Corrosive Environment

A variety of contaminants, which are either chemical elements or compounds, enter a gas turbine engine. Some of the contaminants to gas turbines that are detrimental are Sodium, Potassium, Vanadium Sulfur, Lead, Chlorine, Fluorine, Magnesium, Calcium, Silicon, Nitrogen, Water, Sediments and Inert Particulates. Unusual contaminants such as Mercury, Cadmium, Bismuth,Continue Reading

Gulls and other birds fly past wind turbines

Public consultations for wind power projects often hear the same question: how will this affect wildlife? The issue has followed wind generation since it first became widespread and has never truly gone away. Still now, bird protection causes significant delays to wind projects. As an example, the 2.4GW Hornsea ThreeContinue Reading
