Innogy announced three pretty big news about its Galloper offshore wind project today, 7 November. The wind farm generated the first power on 5 November, 38 wind turbines are now installed at the site, and the project’s capacity has increased by 17MW.Namely, Siemens Gamesa – the supplier of fifty-six 6MW turbines – has improved the turbines and increased the output from 6MW to 6.3MW for each turbine, which totals to almost 17MW across the entire wind farm. With this boost, Galloper can supply over 40,000 more homes a year and the project can now provide clean electricity to over 380,000 households.On the project generating its first power, innogy pointed out that this milestone signals the beginning of the process to bring all 56 wind turbines online, expected to be completed in early 2018.Project Director Toby Edmonds said: “We have generated in record time having built the offshore part of the project in a single year which is a fantastic achievement. It has been a superb team effort that has been made possible by everyone involved from the innogy project team to our contractors and partners.”The Galloper offshore wind project is owned by innogy SE, Macquarie Capital, Siemens Financial Services, and a consortium managed by Green Investment Group and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, with innogy leading the project construction on behalf of its partners. The financial close for Galloper was reached in November 2015.
Washington Post 21 Oct 2011Conventional wisdom holds that about half of U.S. marriages end in divorce — and that most Americans wish the divorce rate were lower. Still, many are skeptical about whether we can lower the divorce rate without trapping more people in bad marriages. This skepticism is fueled by two common assumptions: Divorce happens only after a long process of misery and conflict; and, once couples file for divorce, they don’t entertain the idea of reconciling. We now know those assumptions are wrong.Research over the past decade has shown that a major share of divorces (50 to 66 percent, depending on the study) occur between couples who had average happiness and low levels of conflict in the years before the divorce. Contrary to popular belief, only a minority of divorcing couples experience high conflict and abuse during their marriages. Most divorces occur with couples who have drifted apart and handle everyday disagreements poorly. It is these “average” divorces that research shows are the most harmful to children….William J. Doherty and his team of researchers asked 2,500 divorcing parents in Minnesota who were well along in that process whether they were interested in services to help them reconcile. In at least 10 percent of these divorce cases, both spouses were open to efforts to reconcile — and in another 30 percent, one spouse was interested in reconciliation. Results for couples earlier in the divorce process were even more promising. In other words, a substantial number of today’s divorces may be preventable.http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/delaying-divorce-to-save-marriages/2011/10/19/gIQAKh0f1L_story.htmlREAD Full ReportREAD Media Release
