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

I’m desperate to take Arsenal back to the top, Aubameyang says

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said he remains committed to the club and wants to help them challenge for major honours. The statement is to dispel speculation that the Gabon striker might want to leave the misfiring north London side. Arsenal sit 10th in the 2019/2020 English Premier League after 21 games, nine points adrift of the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League qualifying places. He added: “People like making up stories and they should focus on what’s happening on the pitch. “They talk too much and it does my head in!” Aubameyang wrote in the match programme ahead of the FA Cup third round tie at home to Leeds United on Monday. “I am the Arsenal captain. I love this club. I am committed to it and desperate to bring it back to the top, where it belongs.” Aubameyang has yet to sign an extension to his current contract at the Emirates Stadium, which runs until 2021. He joined the club in January 2018 for a then-record fee for the Gunners of 56 million pounds. Aubameyang was left out of the Arsenal line-up for the Leeds match due to illness, manager Mikel Arteta had told the media. Reuters/NAN.Tags: ArsenalPierre-Emerick Aubameyanglast_img read more
