The Brande Hydrogen pilot project aims to produce green hydrogen directly from wind energy with no connection to an electricity grid. First test runs are planned for Dec. 2020 and hydrogen production by Jan. 2021.
ABN AMRO’s Energy Transition Fund acquired 34% of Fiberline shares, implements ambitious growth strategy for pultruded wind blades.
Per the agreement, Vestas will acquire Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ shares in the MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (MVOW) joint venture. MHI gets 2.5% in Vestas and a seat on the Vestas board.
Following a depolymerization, purification and reformulation process, the resulting Elium thermoplastic resin is said to enable the manufacture of 100% recyclable wind turbine blades.
On the last day of the 2020 National Composites Week, composites professionals tell us why they think composites are essential. A million thanks to everyone who participated.
