first_imgChina expected to take lead in offshore wind capacity by 2021 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:The U.K., which now leads the world in offshore wind installations, will soon lose its title to China, despite plans to double its capacity by 2030. The analyst firm FTI Consulting expects China’s cumulative offshore capacity to pull ahead of the U.K. after 2021.That year, China is expected to have almost 10.9 gigawatts of cumulative capacity, compared to less than 10.4 gigawatts in the U.K. China has been catching up with the U.K. since 2017, when Chinese offshore wind installations breached the 1-gigawatt mark.From 2019 onward, FTI Consulting expects China to install 2 gigawatts per year, rising to 4 gigawatts annually by 2025. In contrast, the U.K. is not expected to reach 2 gigawatts per year until 2024.China’s advancement comes as the U.K. completed a number of prominent projects in 2018, including the world’s largest operational offshore wind farm, Walney Extension, which clocks in at 659 megawatts, plus the 573-megawatt Race Bank and 400-megawatt Rampion plants.Pointing to the scale of China’s ambitions, this month Jiangsu Province in eastern China was reported to have approved 24 offshore wind projects with a total capacity of 6.7 gigawatts, all due to come online before the end of 2020. The 122.29 billion yuan (USD $18 billion) investment is part of a plan called “Three Gorges on Sea” that aims to develop 10 gigawatts of offshore wind in Jiangsu, reports said.The Jiangsu projects approved this month are nearly six times as much as the 1.2 gigawatts of offshore wind power that China installed nationally in 2017, based on figures from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). They also represent more than twice as much capacity as the whole country had installed offshore at the end of 2017, which GWEC put at almost 2.8 gigawatts.More: China set to overtake UK as offshore wind leader by 2021last_img read more

Strangers even lent a helping hand with a metal detector only for their hunt to end without success.“I came home distraught and felt awful ever since,” she added.“I cannot believe that 18 months later a lady would find it, her sister would post it on Facebook and my ring and I reunited.“I can never thank Fiona Collins and her sister Amanda enough for finding it and for their honesty. “Never Give Up Hope,” she ended her post with.Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, the MLA explained how the good fortune was all down to the weather.The recent hot spell had burned away reeds leaving the ring to be found.“It probably never would have been found only for the weather,” the MLA added.Before leaving the area the family left messages with those that had helped in case the ring showed up and then all of a sudden a text came out of the blue. After a few messages husband Brendan was dispatched back to Ballyliffin to retrieve the ring.“We exchanged pictures and a description and even when she said ‘yes’ I didn’t believe it until it was back on my finger. I never got my hopes up.”Last week a little boy helped reunite lost wedding and engagement rings with their owners after he was on a treasure hunt in Donegal.Again social media came to the fore to bring a happy ending. Treasure hunter Oliver (8) reunites lost engagement and wedding rings with grateful owner“It just shows you to never give up hope,” added Nichola.“You hear these stories and you imagine it could happen to you, but you never believe it – you dream. We never replaced it.“I know it’s an engagement ring and they are sentimental to everyone. But I never had a say in picking it, Brendan did it all on his own and we thought it was lost for good.“I’m over the moon these things never happen to me.”She added: “I can’t thank Fiona and Amanda enough. It shows you the power of social media and that there are good honest people out there.”Woman finds lost engagement ring 18 months after losing it on Donegal beach was last modified: August 15th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallyliffindonegalNicola Mallonringlast_img read more
