ISH 2019 from Monday to Friday.Changing the sequence to Monday to Friday will give trade visitors an extra working day at the fair


ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for the combination of water and energy, is changing its sequence of days. In future, the event will begin on Monday, instead of Tuesday, as in the past.

“With the new sequence of days, we are taking account of the wishes of our exhibitors. Changing the sequence to Monday to Friday will give trade visitors an extra working day at the fair. At the same time, travelling will be more convenient for international visitors”, says Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.

In line with the recommendation of the ISH Advisory Council and the exhibitors, the change in the sequence of days was agreed by a majority of the ISH patrons – the Federation of the German Heating Industry (BDH), Association of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Buildings (FGK), Association of the German Sanitation Industry (VDS), German Association for Energy Efficiency in Building Services (VdZ) and The German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association (ZVSHK) – following the last edition of the fair.

DNV GL certifies Ingeteam’s 2MW DFIG converter

Ingeteam, the world-leading supplier of electrical conversion equipment, announced today that it received DNV GL’s certification for its Ingecon®Wind stator-equipped 2MW DFIG converter. With this latest achievement, Ingeteam completes the range of its products covered under DNV GL certification, such as the medium voltage full power converters and the statorless DFIG converters; and demonstrates its ability to consistently meet DNV GL’s quality and safety requirements across multiple drive-train topologies.

Ingeteam’s low voltage DFIG power converters have been developed with a modular FRT solution to optimize cost-effectiveness and fulfil the strictest international grid codes. It is a mature technology used by many of the main turbine manufacturers, offering key advantages with regards to costs and sizes savings.

The DNV GL Component Certificate confirms that ingeteam’s converter is designed, documented and manufactured in accordance to design assumptions, specific standards and technical requirements, globally. It also makes the process of new turbine development easier, speeding up the integration of components to wind turbine platforms.

“To this day, DFIG converters remain the most proven, efficient and cost competitive drive train topology,” explained Ion Etxarri Sangüesa, R&D Quality Team Leader of Ingeteam Wind Energy. “Our DFIG converter series offer cost-optimized products for each market and application. Those converters present a very grid-friendly behaviour, including FRT, SCR and SSR, which explains why they are used all over the world, and, in particular, why they do very well in emerging markets such as India or Brazil. Our 2MW DFIG converters can be modulated to bring customized solutions that will effectively minimize wind turbine LCoE”, continued Etxarri Sangüesa.

“We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Ingeteam and support the company in their efforts to demonstrate the quality standards of their products. This new certification is another step forward in the excellent working relationship we have developed with Ingeteam over the years. The certificate emphasizes the quality requirements of Ingeteam in safety and reliability of their products”, concluded Kim Mørk, Executive Vice President, Renewables Certification at DNV GL.

Ukraine: Inauguration of the Novotroickoe wind park

In Herson, the president of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation in Ukraine, Serghei Savchuk participated at the inauguration of the Novotroickoe wind park. The total capacity of the plant will be about 70 MW and will be among those the three largest and most powerful in Ukraine.

The installation consists of wind turbines delivered by one of the world's largest wind turbine manufacturers - the company Danish Vestas. The project was implemented by Windcart Tavria along with Ukrgasbank.

"This shows that investors are more active and interested in investing in the installation of renewable energy energy. These success stories are the result of hard work by the Government and the Parliament" Sergei Savchuk told the opening ceremony.

In 2016, 121 MW of renewable energy was introduced, which is 4 times higher than in 2015. For the 7 months of 2017, 166.1 MW have already been installed, which is more than for the whole of the past year.

As for the Herson region, this area is one of the best in the development of "clean energy". Starting with 1 August 2017, there are 23 installations in the Kherson region that generate green electricity. Specifically, 18 with capacity solar power of 68.4 MW and 4 wind farms with a total capacity of nearly 34 MW.

Niculae Havrileţ: Romania's target will be 32% renewable energy for 2030

Niculae Havrileţ, energy minister adviser and former president of the Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE), said in a special conference that as the price of equipment is decreasing, the electricity bill will be lower: "Romania's target will be 32% for 2030. Given that we have already exceeded the target of 4% by 2020, another 8% in the next 12 years is very likely to be installed without a special financial support."

At present, there are wind turbines in Romania with a capacity of 3,105 MW, photovoltaic panels of 1,361 MW, micro-hydropower plants of 342 MW and biomass plants of 143 MW.
