Oil and gas giant to build on wa lng find ings to develop offshore oilfield for first time in UK for 50 years
Workers continue drilling an exploratory well at Sandspore site in the North Sea in October 2012. British industry is now moving to build on the latest windf ee of research made up of wind turbines, deep sea drilling and geotechnical exploration, according to an industry source. The source said the wind farm on the Sandspore development would be built to support one of three wind farms in the UK to be built over the next decade, adding: “The offshore wind farm has been planned for 40 years.”
Sandspore is one of the most advanced offshore wind farms under development, with a 130ft (33m) tall, 3MW offshore wind turbine. Plans for the project at Sandspore, off the west coast of the UK, suggest it could be developed in six years and could have the capacity to generate as much energy as 7MW.
Sandspore is expected to create about 400 jobs and will be used to store and distribute energy from offshore wind farms in the UK. In a move to give greater certainty to offshore wind developers, the Depa우리카지노rtment of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced that it intends to release “informant” reports on offshore windf ee that are published to the public in 2014. The DECC says it believes that with offshore wind’s potential it needs “a mechanism to make it easier for people to engage and decide where they want to go onshore.” In a previous development statement from DECC in November 2010, the agency바카라사이트 said its own wind projects were to be conducted through the National Energy Market. The DECC said that offshore windf ee should have the following information available to the public by 2014: wind turbine output and wind farm locations; production of renewable energy from offshore windf ee; a detailed “technic바카라al history” of windfarm construction and operation; the current offshore windf ee resources, both onshore and offshore; and potential future developments.
DECC’s announcement that information about offshore windf ee plans and developments will appear online at www.dci.gov.uk is expected to pave the way for offshore windf ee to go through the competitive bidding process. The DECC is also working on the first phase of a public procurement process for wind turbine design for offshore windf ee. The procurement will seek information about proposals from independent designers and manufacturers. The initial phase will be conducted over the nex
