The scale of the turbine is considerable. It will stand 260 meters tall and have a capacity of 12 megawatts (MW) as well as 107-meter-long blades. At the time, GE Renewable Energy said it would be the world’s largest and most powerful offshore turbine.“As we rapidly progress on assembling the Haliade-X prototype, this announcement is a critical step forward for GE and our customers,” John Lavelle, VP and CEO of Offshore Wind at GE Renewable Energy, said Wednesday. “The port of Rotterdam has been a real partner and provides all the necessary conditions to test the Haliade-X in the most drastic weather conditions.”GE is investing $400 million in the development of the Haliade-X turbine. Future Wind is a joint venture between SIF Holding Netherlands and Pondera Development.More: GE to install and test a ‘prototype’ of vast 12-megawatt turbine in the Netherlandslast_img read more

Four things we learned from Manchester City v Liverpool

first_imgSane’s ninth goal for City this season came after he also played an important role in unhinging Liverpool’s defence in the build-up to Sergio Aguero’s opener.Stones’ great escapeDespite dominating the early stages, City were just 1.12cm away from suffering a potentially game-changing self-inflicted wound as John Stones atoned for his mistake in dramatic fashion.With City backing off too far as Liverpool launched their first serious attack, Salah had time to pick his pass to Sadio Mane, whose shot hit the inside of the post.City defender Stones reacted with a panicked clearance against Ederson and the ball cannoned off the goalkeeper towards his own net.It looked certain to be a farcical own goal but Stones scrambled back to hook clear of the approaching Salah.Liverpool claimed it had gone in, but goalline technology showed that a tiny portion of the ball — just 1.12cm according to Premier League statistics — hadn’t crossed the line, meaning the decision to play on was correct.“I heard it was tight. I’m just happy it didn’t go over the line! Those sort of things can change a game,” Stones smiled.By such small margins are titles won and lost.Aguero haunts Liverpool againSergio Aguero has feasted on Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium and once again the Reds had no answer to City’s lethal finisher.Aguero’s 40th minute opener extended his streak of having scored in all seven of his home league games against Liverpool.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City reignited their Premier League title challenge with a crucial 2-1 win over leaders Liverpool on Thursday.Leroy Sane’s superb second half strike handed Liverpool their first league defeat this season and moved the champions to within four points of Jurgen Klopp’s side.Here are four things we learned from the seismic showdown between the two leading title contenders:Sane makes his pointA season that started with Leroy Sane’s future at City in doubt is no longer a tale of woe for the German winger, who underlined his vast potential with the blistering winner that kept the champions’ title hopes alive.Frustrated after being left out of Germany’s World Cup squad, Sane began City’s first three league games on the bench and was then left out entirely for the trip to Newcastle amid claims Pep Guardiola was concerned by the youngster’s focus in training.The close-season signing of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester was another impediment to Sane’s progress.“It is the toughest situation I have to handle,” Guardiola said at the time.“When Sane plays he has to play well. I am pretty sure of that.”But the 22-year-old gradually regained Guardiola’s trust and returned to the team, although it wasn’t until October — when he scored four times in five games — that Sane really showed his true colours.Since then, Sane has been much closer to the buccaneering force who played a major role in their title success and City have opened talks over an extension to a contract that expires in 2021.Selecting Sane, who was signed from Schalke in 2016, for the key clash against Liverpool made it clear Guardiola had no further doubts.His faith was rewarded in the 72nd minute as he drilled a brilliant low strike past Alisson Becker and in off the far post.last_img read more
