A life dedicated to the sound of wind
The invisible song of the wind is one of the hardest things to capture and tame – but not for Ejler Kristensen, who dedicated 38 years to the sound of wind. He has been part of the Siemens Gamesa family since September 1982 when he started working as an engineer in Brande, Denmark. From 1992 onwards, his focus has been on noise and vibration.
Pakistan: Bridging the energy gap with wind
A yawning gap in the supply and demand for electricity has led Pakistan to set an ambitious goal: to generate 30% of its power from modern renewable sources by 2030. Zephyr Power, an Independent Power Producer, embarked on that journey and entrusted its first 50-MW wind project at Gharo to Siemens Gamesa. This debut has set several performance benchmarks and demonstrated that the right technology is key to ensuring wind works in the nascent Pakistani renewable energy market.
Encouraging STEM careers for a better future
Over recent years the number of students choosing a STEM career (science, technology, engineering, or math) has decreased, despite the fact that employment prospects are higher than in other fields. According to the OECD’s study ‘Education at a Glance 2019’, less than 15% of new bachelor degree students choose to study engineering, manufacturing and construction and less than 5% study information and communication technologies.
Champions of change
Carbon neutrality is a bold change, one that can minimize the impact of the climate crisis. Both EDF Renewables and Siemens Gamesa are leading the way and setting an example for others to follow: EDF by targeting carbon neutrality by 2050 and Siemens Gamesa by targeting net-zero emissions by 2050. The companies share a vision of a sustainable future powered by clean, affordable energy, made possible through partnership and innovation. The Oso Grande and Coyote projects in the U.S. exemplify this strong collaboration with EDF Renewables becoming the first customer to deploy the Siemens Gamesa 4.X onshore platform in the US.
Siemens Gamesa aids African communities impacted COVID-19
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread globally, Africa continues to suffer, and the consequences add to an already tangled economic, medical and sanitary situation. As of the end of September, there are 1.4 million confirmed cases with a 2% death rate, according to the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In such times, the contributions of the private sector and the solidarity of individuals is essential.
Innovation 4.0. to fight climate change
Innovation is one of the vectors that drives social progress and creates tools to address new challenges. This is particularly so in our current digital age. Consequently, given the urgent need to tackle climate change, we also need the momentum of Innovation 4.0, which is based on knowledge management and disruptive technologies. Siemens Gamesa, supported by the Basque Government's BIND 4.0 programme, is exploring new initiatives based on artificial intelligence (AI) and gamification, such as an AI algorithm to avoid even the slightest flaw in the production of blades for wind turbines, the use of satellites for real-time monitoring of wind farms, and programmes for interactive learning of factory processes.
Reindeer and four-meter deep snow can’t stop standout Swedish Stavro project
A month-long stop to let breeding reindeer pass, and the potential for up to four meters of snow this winter, won’t stop the exemplary Stavro project for reaching completion by the end of next year, says Siemens Gamesa project manager Carsten Jacobsen.
