World's biggest wind turbine set to start turning off Netherlands

GE is about to set the blades turning on its giant 12MW Haliade-X prototype



Recharge Wind | Sep 16, 2019

Grandly unveiling the 12MW Haliade-X offshore wind turbine last year as being powered by a rotor star “five times the size of the Arc de Triomphe” could have been an act of hubris for GE, with some detractors cynically describing the design at its launch as the ‘most powerful turbine on a PowerPoint’.

But the US OEM looks like soon having the last laugh. The prototype of the record-breaking machine, which will fly the world’s biggest-ever rotor, spanning 220-metres, is this month to be set turning at a quasi-offshore location at the Port of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.

The Haliade-X is a leap in engineering for the industry – and for GE, a doubling of the nameplate of its forerunner, the 6MW Haliade 150. The higher-rated unit will measurably outclass its closest rivals, promising to deliver 45% more power than Siemens Gamesa’s 10MW SG10.0-193DD and MHI Vestas’ like-rated V164 – though both of these turbine makers are known to be well-advanced in their work on 12MW-16MW designs.

The Haliade-X’s vast rotor will harness wind from a 38,000 square metre swept-area to turn a hulking, digitally-controlled direct-drive and permanent-magnet-generator transmission system with a 63% gross capacity factor, raising the current industry benchmark by five to seven points, which GE calculates will translate into $35-50m more revenue per unit over the life of a wind farm compared to its ‘ultra-large-class’ rivals... https://www.rechargenews.com/wind/1851001/worlds-biggest-wind-turbine-set-to-start-turning-off-netherlands



But wait- don't wind turbines cause cancer?

Wind Expert and POTUS says so...

2. I don't know man.

The cancer line itself should cause people to reflect on who they think this person is.
Of course there will be the delusional that think it's funny and trolling, by the president of the United States. yay, I guess.
He could say the same about property bullshit about a pipeline, or train tracks, or anything else.
The only thing we know, is he won't have to worry about any of that shit. We all will. He'll never let anything bring down his property value, even at the expense of yours.
Yay!

5. Depends on where you live.

If Trump has the choice to put a pipeline/railway/wind turbines through your property or his, where do you think the they will go?
Lmfao.
You're OK with that though I suppose.
He'll never let something lower his property value. Everyone knows that, man.

7. No. I don't believe Trump.

We'll see how happy he'd be with eminent domain when it's his property value getting lowered.
We all know that won't happen.
Well, most of us apparently.

9. What difference does it make?

You pulled out eminent domain when we weren't even talking about it.
It was about Trump saying Wind Turbines lower property values and cause cancer.

Some things never change.

3. Wind turbines make low frequency sounds that make people sick. I wouldnt want to live anywhere

near one. That’s a fact.

11. I can't help but wonder ...

how many birds, currently on the endangered species list, will be eliminated from existence by these climate change hoaxsters?

12. Perhaps you should

educate yourself just a bit

Wind farms are hardly the bird slayers they're made out to be—here's why (June 2017)

People who oppose wind farms often claim wind turbine blades kill large numbers of birds, often referring to them as "bird choppers". And claims of dangers to iconic or rare birds, especially raptors, have attracted a lot of attention.

Wind turbine blades do indeed kill birds and bats, but their contribution to total bird deaths is extremely low, as these three studies show.

A 2009 study using US and European data on bird deaths estimated the number of birds killed per unit of power generated by wind, fossil fuel and nuclear power systems.

It concluded, "Wind farms and nuclear power stations are responsible each for between 0.3 and 0.4 fatalities per gigawatt-hour (GWh) of electricity while fossil-fuelled power stations are responsible for about 5.2 fatalities per GWh." https://phys.org/news/2017-06-farms-bird-slayers-theyre-behere.html


US Audubon Society

Audubon's Position on Wind Power

audubon.org

Audubon strongly supports properly sited wind power as a renewable energy source that helps reduce the threats posed to birds and people by climate change. However, we also advocate that wind power facilities should be planned, sited, and operated in ways that minimize harm to birds and other wildlife, and we advocate that wildlife agencies should ensure strong enforcement of the laws that protect birds and other wildlife. https://www.audubon.org/conservation/audubons-position-wind-power

Wind turbines kill fewer birds than do cats, cell towers

Does anyone ever do any independent research anymore before they spout nonsense?
