Vestas receives order for 67 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines for Texas, USA

28.02.2005


The Vestas Group has received an order to supply and commission 67 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines for a 120 MW wind power project near Abilene, Texas from Buffalo Gap Wind Farm LLC, a project company developed by SeaWest Holdings, Inc.

The wind power plant will be commissioned by 31 December 2005. The parties have entered into a turbine supply agreement and a warranty, maintenance and service agreement. Recently, AES Corporation, a major international power company headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, announced its plans to acquire SeaWest Holdings, Inc. and combine this with its other recent investment in US Wind Force, LLC, in order to advance its goal to become a strong wind generation developer, operator and owner. With the recently announced acquisition, AES Corporation will have wind power projects operating or under development in 13 states in the US.

“We are pleased to be part of this project and AES Corporation’s entry into the US wind power market,” says Svend Sigaard, President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems A/S and adds: “The market for wind power in the US is changing. An increasing number of major utilities and developers like AES Corporation are focusing on wind power – a trend we expect will have a positive impact on the market”.

Subject to a non-disclosure agreement with the customer, Vestas cannot reveal the value of the supply and service contracts. However, the value of the order does not affect the Vestas Group’s expectations for 2005, cf. Stock exchange announcement No. 45/2004 of 26 November 2004.

Any questions may be addressed to the Executive Management at Vestas Wind Systems A/S, telephone +45 9730 0000.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
