Already in the planning phase of wind farms essential parameters of success - or failure, in most cases based on 20 years of operational life, are laid. Many technical and financial risks are well hidden and first make themselves felt negatively in the long run. Yet they are included in the planning at this early stage.
Successful project development of wind farms take into consideration not only technical planning and legal criteria, but also deal in detail with the efficiency and project due diligence from the viewpoints of the operators, investors and project backers.The objective of the two-day seminar “Wind Farm Planning and Project Due Diligence” is to enable the participants to recognise the risks, then to evaluate and minimise those risks if not completely eliminate them.
The seminar “Wind Farm Planning and Project Due Diligence” will be held on 24 - 25 March 2011 at Haus der Technik in Essen and is aimed at project developers, bank staff-members and investors, WT-manufacturers and licensing authorities.

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.
As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...
When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.
The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe.
Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...
Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.
From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
