Since this week the project financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in the Canadian province of Québec is in place: KfW IPEX-Bank is providing a long-term project financing loan of up to CAD 61.7 million. Supplier of the wind turbines is REpower, a German manufacturer of wind energy systems based in Hamburg. The project is being managed by the Canadian developer Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. jointly with the regional country municipality (RCM) Rivière-du-Loup.
Markus Scheer, member of the Management Board of KfW IPEX-Bank, commented on the closing: "KfW IPEX-Bank's financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in Canada focuses on one of the bank's priorities, namely environmental and climate protection. As REpower is involved in the project, the bank is also supporting the export of German-built wind turbines. We are pleased to work together once again with REpower, a long-time valued business partner of KfW IPEX-Bank."
Plans call for the wind farm to be erected by the end of this year. When commercial operation begins 12 REpower MM92 wind turbines with a total capacity of 24.6 MW will supply several thousand Canadian households with green energy every year. In addition to supplying the turbines REpower is also in charge of commissioning and maintenance of the systems for the first ten years. Offtaker is the energy supply company Hydro Québec.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
