Siemens to Fatso: F OFF. Launches World's Largest Wind Turbine at 14 Megawatts

Attention Righty: Siemens is a German multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Munich and the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe. And Europe is on Another Continent. A Continent is one of several very large landmasses on the Earth. Just in case you never knew. LOL@RIGHTY

The new machine can be dialed up to 15 megawatts, and an even larger version is in the works, says Siemens Gamesa’s head of offshore technology.

The turbine's rotor diameter is around the same height as the Golden Gate Bridge.

19 MAY 2020

Siemens Gamesa on Tuesday launched the largest wind turbine ever publicly announced, a 14-megawatt model with a 222-meter rotor diameter meant for offshore wind farms.

Morten Pilgaard Rasmussen, head of offshore technology at Siemens Gamesa, told GTM the company expects to confirm its first orders for the new turbine soon, with offers already out to a number of "global" offshore wind developers.

The launch puts Siemens Gamesa back in first place in the rankings for the largest offshore turbines on the market. GE revealed its 12-megawatt Haliade-X platform in 2018 and secured its first orders the following year.

A 14-megawatt version of GE's Haliade-X has been referenced in permitting documents, according to Shashi Barla, principal analyst for wind technology and supply chain at Wood Mackenzie. But Siemens Gamesa's 14-222 DD model has a slightly larger rotor diameter and can increase its rating to 15 megawatts using a "Power Boost" function.

With delays to projects in the U.S. that plan to use the Haliade-X, both Siemens Gamesa's and GE's 14-megawatt turbines could see their first projects commissioned around the same time, Barla said.

Siemens Gamesa expects to install a prototype of the new 14-megawatt model in Denmark by fall 2021. That won't stop orders being placed in the meantime: Offshore wind companies are used to ordering turbines still under development, given the long lead times of projects. Or as Rasmussen puts it, they’re used to buying “green bananas.”...snip

The new turbine's nacelle will weigh 500 tons, considered lightweight by industry standards.

Trump Boasted of Avoiding STDs While Dating: Vaginas Are 'Landmines ... It Is My Personal Vietnam' | ALE RUSSIAN | October 28, 2016

In an unearthed interview from 1997, Donald Trump claimed he was a "brave soldier" for avoiding STDs during his single years in the late '90s.

"It's amazing, I can't even believe it. I've been so lucky in terms of that whole world, it is a dangerous world out there. It's like Vietnam, sort of. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider, Trump said in the interview when Howard Stern asked how he handled making sure he wasn't contracting STDs from the women he was sleeping with.

The business-mogul-turned-politician elaborated on the fact in the interview, calling women's vaginas "potential landmines" and saying 'there's some real danger there"

Also appearing on Stern's show in 1993, Trump bragged about his promiscuous lifestyle while single and stated that men who didn't go to Vietnam didn't need to feel guilty because dating during the AIDS epidemic in the '80s was also dangerous.

"You know, if you're young, and in this era, and if you have any guilt about not having gone to Vietnam, we have our own Vietnam It's called the dating game,"Trump said to Stern in a 1993 interview. "Dating is like being in Vietnam. You're the equivalent of a soldier going over to Vietnam...

Poland to Fatso: F OFF. Poland added 236 MW of solar in two months

The country’s installed PV capacity reached 1.83 GW at the end of last month, according to the national grid operator.

PV Magazine | May 12, 2020 Emiliano Bellini

Polish grid operator, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) says the country reached 1.83 GW of solar installations last month.

PSE on Monday announced the total solar capacity of the nation rose 8.1% in March and April, with 236.2 MW of new systems installed.

The grid operator had reported 1.29 GW of solar in Poland at the end of the year, up from around 1 GW in late September, and from just 486 MW at the end of 2018.... more:

Maybe because Fatso knows nothing about renewable energy?

Lefty Matt Tiabbi: Democrats Have Abandoned Civil Liberties

Democrats Have Abandoned Civil Liberties

The Blue Party’s Trump-era Embrace of Authoritarianism Isn’t Just Wrong, it’s a Fatal Political Mistake

Matt Taibbi | May 15 2020

Emmet G. Sullivan, the judge in the case of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, is refusing to let William Barr’s Justice Department drop the charge. He’s even thinking of adding more, appointing a retired judge to ask “whether the Court should issue an Order to Show Cause why Mr. Flynn should not be held in criminal contempt for perjury.”

Pundits are cheering. A trio of former law enforcement and judicial officials saluted Sullivan in the Washington Post, chirping, “The Flynn case isn’t over until a judge says it’s over.” Yuppie icon Jeffrey Toobin of CNN and the New Yorker, one of the #Resistance crowd’s favored legal authorities, described Sullivan’s appointment of Judge John Gleeson as “brilliant.” MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner said Americans owe Sullivan a “debt of gratitude.”

One had to search far and wide to find a non-conservative legal analyst willing to say the obvious, i.e. that Sullivan’s decision was the kind of thing one would expect from a judge in Belarus. George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley was one of the few willing to say Sullivan’s move could “could create a threat of a judicial charge even when prosecutors agree with defendants.”

Sullivan’s reaction was amplified by a group letter calling for Barr’s resignation signed by 2000 former Justice Department officials (the melodramatic group email somberly reported as momentous news is one of many tired media tropes in the Trump era) and the preposterous “leak” of news that the dropped case made Barack Obama sad. The former president “privately” told “members of his administration” (who instantly told Yahoo! News) that there was no precedent for the dropping of perjury charges, and that the “rule of law” itself was at stake.

Whatever one’s opinion of Flynn, his relations with Turkey, his “Lock her up!” chants, his haircut, or anything, this case was never about much. There’s no longer pretense that prosecution would lead to the unspooling of a massive Trump-Russia conspiracy, as pundits once breathlessly expected. In fact, news that Flynn was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller inspired many of the “Is this the beginning of the end for Trump?” stories that will someday fill whole chapters of Journalism Fucks Up 101 textbooks... more:

FBI accidentally names Saudi embassy official linked to 9/11 attackers

Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah’s name inadvertently left unredacted in court filing; alleged to have tasked 2 men to help Pentagon attackers | May 14, 2020

In court filings unsealed last week, the FBI inadvertently revealed the identity of an official at the Saudi embassy in Washington who was accused of providing support to two of the 9/11 hijackers.

According to Yahoo News, a senior official with the law enforcement agency filed a court declaration in relation to a lawsuit brought by the families of victims, accusing the Saudi government of playing a role in the deadly attacks.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were Saudis. The 2001 attacks masterminded by al-Qaeda’s Saudi-born leader Osama bin Laden killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

The declaration in which Saudi official Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah was identified was filed to support moves by Attorney General William Barr and acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to bar the disclosure of the Saudi official’s name and all related documents, saying that they were state secrets.

Al-Jarrah was a mid-level employee at the Saudi embassy in Washington, DC, in 1999 and 2000. According to the report, his duties apparently included “overseeing the activities of Ministry of Islamic Affairs employees at Saudi-funded mosques and Islamic centers within the United States.” The report said former embassy employees said he reported to the Saudi ambassador in the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.... more:

LA Times: Buffett-backed giant solar project near Las Vegas wins Trumps blessing - largest in US

May 11, 2020

The Trump administration on Monday approved the largest solar installation in U.S. history, giving its blessing to a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. subsidiary’s 690-megawatt project just north of Las Vegas.

When finished, NV Energy’s estimated $1-billion Gemini Solar Project is set to become the eighth-largest solar power facility in the world, spanning some 7,100 acres of federal land and generating enough electricity to power 260,000 homes in the region.

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt called approval of the project “one more step forward as the president is moving forward and transitioning” to reopen the economy. “It has a significant potential for construction jobs” during a real “tough time for folks,” Bernhardt said in an interview Monday.

The Interior Department has estimated that as many as 900 workers could be involved at any given time during construction. Developers aim to build the project in two phases over roughly 28 months, with the first portion coming online in early 2021 and final facility completion as early as 2022...more:

Alameda County orders Teslas Fremont plant to stop production

People linger outside a building at the Tesla car factory on Monday. Tesla has reopened its Fremont car factory in defiance of county rules prohibiting car manufacturing during shelter-in-place.

SF Chron May 12, 2020 Updated: May 12, 2020 11:32 a.m by Chase DiFeliciantonio

Alameda County officials sent a letter to a top Tesla safety employee Monday ordering the company to cease manufacturing at its Fremont plant, the strongest step local government has taken to check the electric car maker’s defiance of health orders.

The Chronicle previously reported some production lines began running over the weekend and some employees returned to the plant as early as last week. Alameda County’s local shelter-in-place orders, in place since mid-March, do not allow for manufacturing, though Tesla initially defied them, delaying the shutdown of vehicle production.

The letter from Alameda County Health Care Services Agency Director Colleen Chawla to a top Tesla executive reiterates that the company can only perform basic functions at the plant until the county and Tesla agree on a plan to reopen the factory in line with state and local rules.

“Until then, however, you must maintain no more than Minimum Basic Operations,” Chawla wrote to Laurie Shelby, vice president of environmental, health, and safety at Tesla...

Dubai to Fatso: F OFF. "Solar @ 01.69 cents/kWh is New Global Benchmark"

ACWA Power has formally won the Vth Phase of the MbRAM Solar Park from DEWA, after submitting a winning bid tariff of USD 1.6953/kWh

Following its successful Bid Submission on the 9th of October 2019, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) awarded the 900 MW photovoltaic fifth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MbRAM) Solar Park to the consortium led by ACWA Power, a leading international developer and operator of power and water desalination projects in partnership with Gulf Investment Corporation (GIC), a GCC premier principal investor and co-developer in the Gulf.

“The winning tariff of USD 1.6953 cents/kWh establishes a new global benchmark for Solar Energy,” the firm issued in its statement. “The progress of this project even as the world is severely impacted by the COVID 19 Pandemic is a testament to DEWA’s unwavering commitment to meeting the energy demands of Dubai with an increasing share of renewable energy and reconfirms the confidence of the financial markets in the ability of DEWA and ACWA Power to successfully complete the project and reliably dispatch green electricity for the 25-year duration of the contract.”

In line with its strategy to support Dubai in its forward-thinking ambitions of becoming a low-carbon sustainable economy, the Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park will be the largest single-site solar park in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model when completed with a planned production capacity of 5,000 MW, with investments valued at USD 13.6 billion. When completed, the solar park will save over 6.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually.

The 900 MW 5th phase with an investment of USD 570 Million, will bring the production capacity of the solar park to 2,863 MW. This fifth phase alone is expected to power 270,000 homes and offset carbon emissions amounting to 1.18 million tons per year in Dubai. The project will use the latest bifacial photovoltaic solar panels, which captures sunlight on both sides of the panel and produces energy with an advanced solar tracking system to increase generation efficiency....more:
