  • Self-Closing Safety Gates for Regulating Platform Access - Case Study

    Semco Maritime is a project engineering company and they needed a safety solution to secure access to specific platforms. These platforms were used as a means by which semco Maritime would transport wind turbine blades.  Kee Safety's Self-Closing Safety Gate served as the perfect method of access protection that would keep workers safe and stand up against the elements for the long ...

  • South Fork Wind Farm (SFWF) - Case Study

    The South Fork Wind Farm is a planned offshore wind farm located 30 miles east of Montauk that will consist of approximately 15 wind turbines and a subsea transmission system that will deliver energy to East Hampton, NY. Marine survey activities are scheduled to begin in Summer 2017. Marine construction is planned to start 2021. Overview The South Fork Wind Farm is a planned ...

  • Occupational safety and health in the wind energy sector

    As the European Union power sector continues its move away from oil, coal and nuclear fuels,wind energy has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and this is expected to continue. The wind energy sector is relatively young with turbine technology constantly progressing and this creates an ongoing responsibility to ensure workers that conduct tasks such as installations, ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Renewable energy can benefit from a changing climate

    A warmer and wetter climate may have positive feedback on renewable energy sources. Better conditions for hydropower and biomass energy can be expected. A new analysis has been performed by Nordic and Baltic researchers. The Nordic Council of Ministers has published a new report on the impacts of 21st century climate changes on the development and use of renewable energy in the Nordic and Baltic ...

  • Development of PSO-based robust controller for maximising wind penetration

    In this paper, a new robust controller has been proposed for attaining the maximum safe instantaneous wind penetration. Particle swarm optimisation (PSO)-based algorithm has been developed to obtain the maximum safe instantaneous penetration by the optimisation of grid parameters. The developed algorithm has been tested on modified IEEE 14-bus system. The effectiveness of the proposed methodology ...

  • Numerical methods for investigation of destructive wind energy dissipation by bridges

    Many bridges are located at especially unfavourable places considering the local wind power and turbulence. Therefore it turns out that finding an optimal balance between structural safety and erection costs depends strongly on a proper wind modelling and investigation. Several aspects must be taken into account for the wind design. The effect of wind gusts and randomly distributed wind velocity ...
