Fred Olsen has installed the first of the hundred MHI Vestas V164-9.5MW turbines at the 950 MW Moray East offshore wind farm in Scotland. The project is set to start generating power later this year.

Enel Green Power has completed the 24 MW San Francisco de Borja wind farm in Spain.

Iberdrola has tapped Nel to supply a 20 MW PEM electrolyzer for a green fertilizer initiative in Spain, with a contract worth €13.5 million. The green hydrogen produced will be used at Fertiberia’s ammonia plant in Puertollano.

Adani Solar Energy has commissioned a 150 MW solar plant in Kutch, India, with Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam as the offtaker.

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives will develop the 100 MW Lumpkin Solar Farm in the US state of Georgia, to be completed this year.

New York state has announced 23 large-scale solar projects alongside a 2.2 GW hydropower development. Combined with the existing planned wind and solar projects, the total pipeline is now 12.4 GW in the state.

Japan Land Development Corporation has announced the commissioning in late December of the 50 MW Songdo Tohichi Solar Plant in Japan, with Tohoku Electric Power as the offtaker.

Lightsource BP has commissioned the 260 MW Impact Solar Project in Lamar County, Texas.

China Power Engineering will develop the 120 MW Lufeng City Neiyang I solar-fishing complementarity project in Guangdong, China.

A 300 MW solar plant has been built on a tidal flat in China’s Zhejiang province south of Shanghai. The project uses platforms to those employed at eastern China’s lake-based solar installations, with inverters in particular located 5 meters off the ground.

LONGi plans to build a 15 GW solar cell factory in Shaanxi province, China, at a cost of $1.24 billion.

China’s Gezhouba Power Company is tendering for supply of 120 MW of flat single-axis rackers for three projects it plans to build in Myanmar.

EDF has commissioned the 173.4 MW Maverick 1 and 135.9 MW Maverick 4 solar projects in California, both of which have 15-year PPAs covering most of their output with Southern California Edison.

 

Bruc Energy has agreed to acquire a 2 GW portfolio of Spanish solar projects from Forestalia once the projects are at a ‘ready-to-build’ stage. Financial details have not yet been disclosed.

Masdar and the Taaleri SolarWind II Fund have formed a 50/50 JV to acquire the acquired 37.4MW Mlawa Wind Farm and the 14MW Grajewo Wind Farm in Poland. Both projects are currently under construction and will come online by the end of this year.

RWE has agreed to sell a 24% stake in four of its US wind farms to Greencoat for $160 million, with a combined capacity of 861 MW. The deal includes: the 201MW Stella Wind Farm; the 220MW Cranell Wind Farm; and the 200 MW East Raymond Wind Farm followed, which are all in operation, as well as the 240 MW West Raymond Wind Farm, which will start generation in Q1 of this year.

German conglomerate Thyssenkrupp has won an order to install an 88 MW electrolysis plant for Hydro-Quebec in Canada, after successfully completing a feasibility study for producing hydrogen using hydropower. The plant is set for completion in late 2023 and will have an output of more than 11,000 tons of H2 per year.

Orsted has taken a final investment decision on the H2RES project in Copenhagen, Denmark, which will be one of the first projects to use offshore wind to produce green hydrogen. Set for completion in late 2021, the plant will have an electrolysis capacity of 2 MW, with the ability to produce up to 1 ton of hydrogen per day, which will be used in the clean transport sector after an offtake agreement was signed this week with Everfuel.

 

RWE has completed two onshore wind farms in the US, with a combined capacity of 348 MW, including the 148 MW Boiling Springs wind farm in Oklahmoa, and the 200 MW East Raymond project in Texas.
