Siemens at EWEA offshore 2015 in Copenhagen: Hall E, stand D31
The international wind energy conference EWEA Offshore 2015 in Copenhagen in early March will see Siemens, the market leader in offshore wind turbines and grid access, focusing on innovations supporting cutting the costs of offshore wind power.
In addition to further developing the technology of its wind turbines, the company is advancing the efficiency of turbine-to-grid connections and creating new offshore logistics concepts for turbine maintenance. Siemens is introducing innovative service practices that make wind turbine operation on the high seas more economical. From March 10 to 12, 2015, Siemens will be showing its products, concepts and technologies at the 108-square-meter Stand E-D31 in the exhibition's Hall E.
From 2020 onward, Siemens will offer technologies that, in addition to optimized foundations, will allow offshore wind power to be produced on a LCOE level (levelized cost of energy ) below 10 euro cents per kilowatt hour. Siemens is focusing on multiple aspects to achieve this target: At the exhibition, the company will present its latest advancements in offshore wind turbine technology. These include the evolution of a new offshore wind turbine which provides greater customer value while simultaneously reducing offshore project risks.
Siemens will also address how best to transport the generated power to shore. The high-voltage alternating-current (HVAC) offshore substations needed at present can now be substituted by the new Siemens Grid Access Solution in AC technology which acts as a distributed transmission asset. Focusing on the core electrical equipment and removing a number of optional ancillary systems means the module is now light enough to be mounted together with a turbine on the same foundation or independently. This environmentally-friendly solution offers substantially reduced size, weight, and costs, while improving the customer's flexibility.
Siemens will also present cost-reducing concepts for operating offshore wind power facilities: As part of a new overall logistics concept, specialized ships called Service Operation Vessels (SOV) enable maintenance technicians to be available on site for weeks at a time, as well as safely access turbines in rough seas. With less time spent traveling to and from shore, maintenance operations become more efficient, significantly increasing the availability of offshore wind turbines.
All told, four Siemens Divisions present their innovations at the shared stand: Siemens Wind Power and Renewables, Siemens Power Generation Services, Siemens Energy Management, and Siemens Digital Factory. Together they are pooling their strengths to make offshore wind power even more economical across the entire product lifecycle.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
