Romania's Ministry of Energy authorized offshore works to start gas production in the Black Sea

The Midia Gas Development project consists of digging five production wells (a submarine well at Doina and four production wells at Ana), a submarine production plant on the Doina field, which will be connected via a 18-kilometer pipeline to the production platform monitored and operated from the shore, located on the Ana deposit. A 126 km submarine pipeline will provide gas transportation from the Ana platform to shore to the new gas treatment plant (STG).

The Romanian Ministry of Energy authorized offshore works for the start of gas production in the Midia Gas Development Project.

ZX Lidars achieves world-first wind Lidar measurements from a drone

Leading wind Lidar developer, ZX Lidars, has successfully demonstrated the use of Drone Wind Lidar to accurately measure the wind in what is believed to be a world-first. ZX Lidars provides vertical and horizontal profiling wind Lidars to accurately measure wind conditions remotely and above or ahead of their installed position. These accurate, independent wind measurements are a cornerstone in the development, construction and operation of wind farms globally.

The company has now achieved accurate wind Lidar measurements from a commercially-available drone (an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) for demonstration purposes, and trialed the system successfully during summer 2018 with excellent data rates and sensitivity.

“ZX Lidars is a pioneer of wind Lidar technology – we were the first on turbines, the first offshore… now we’re the first to fly on a small drone” announced ZX Lidars’ Managing Director, Ian Locker. “This and other trials conducted since 2015 only stand to further confirm that our core technology is accurate, reliable and robust lending itself perfectly to a range of applications such as Drone Wind Lidar.”

Dr Michael Harris, Director of Science at ZX Lidars, has pioneered wind Lidar for the wind energy industry for nearly 20 years, and has been the driving force behind this latest innovation.

2018 Drone Wind Lidar trial results will be presented at the Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) 2019.



EBRD arranging syndicated loan of €150 million to SyvashEnergoProm

The EBRD is supporting energy security and reduced pollution in Ukraine by arranging a syndicated loan of €150 million loan for the construction of a 250 MW wind farm in the Kherson region of southern Ukraine.

The loan will be extended to the local developer SyvashEnergoProm LLC, co-owned by renewable energy groups Total Eren of France and NBT of Norway, for the construction of the initial 133 MW phase.  The farm is expected to begin power generation by the end of 2019.
