India: Hydrographic Survey to Commence in Two Weeks

As The Hindu Writes, the hydrographic survey of the waterway in Alappuzha and Kottayam district is likely to commence in two weeks.

Shaji V. Nair, director of SWTD, whose boats use these waterway said: “Now we do not know the depth of the waterway through which our boats operate. This can sometimes lead to accidents. The survey will bring out the depth statistics and we have to then approach the Irrigation Department with the data to bring about corrections. A survey will then have to be undertaken again to check whether the corrected depth is safer for the boats to operate.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
