Publisher's Note July/August 2005

Comparison of Products….

In this issue of Windtech International we introduce a new item called Product Survey. This is a technical product overview of equipment, instruments, hardware systems and software. We will be inviting manufacturers or distributors to participate by describing their products for comparison and further information. It is our goal to present a comprehensive overview of products available on the market in a certain category. For this issue we contacted vendors of SCADA systems. All participants answered a questionnaire and we present the results in columns next to each other, which makes it easy for you to compare the different systems. Unfortunately, not all companies invited were able to participate at this time. For instance, REpower is currently developing a new system and our survey came too early. The system will be branded REguard and they are planning a first presentation in September during HusumWind 2005. Also, Suzlon Energy is currently working on a new system and was not able to reveal details at this stage. It is our intention to publish more Product Surveys during the year about different topics. We welcome your ideas and suggestions for these Product Surveys. We trust that this new item is a valuable information source for our industry.

Establishing a Better Publisher–Reader Relationship

Since November 2004 Windtech International has successfully published four issues. From the start we have been overwhelmed with the warm and positive response to our initiative. However, our editorial team is always trying to enhance the level of service to our readers. At present, we are carrying out a reader survey in order to establish a better publisher–reader relationship, which will help us raise the quality and value of the magazine even further. If you did not receive our email and you are interested in participating in our survey please go to www.windtech-international.com/content/view/133. We very much appreciate your help in filling out our questionnaire and thank you in advance.

Publisher's Note April/May 2005

New Website On-line

Since the early days of generating energy by wind power it has been a goal to increase the amount of energy generated. Over the years, manufacturers have developed bigger turbines with more capacity. The top five manufacturers seem to have a race to have the biggest turbine in the marketplace. The 5MW turbine from REpower, with a height of 120 metres, is the biggest turbine operational at present.  I am sure the competition will follow.

Heading for the Sea ...

After many years of building onshore wind farms, the industry is nowadays more and more focusing on offshore wind farms. And it seems that most countries currently active in this field are thinking in terms of a quantum leap. When comparing the capacity that is scheduled for offshore with the current installed onshore capacity, some people think things may be happening too quickly.

A successful launch…

Although the New Year will already be a few weeks old by the time you read this, may I wish you all the best for 2005. For us the last months of 2004 were an exciting and successful period. During 2004 EWEC we launched the first issue of our magazine and we have been overwhelmed with the warm and positive response to our initiative. Based on the reactions we have received and the number of subscription forms arriving every day we can say that a magazine with the focus on the technology side of the industry is very much welcomed. It seems that Windtech International is filling a gap. If you have not yet taken advantage of our free subscription offer I encourage you to fill out the form on page 48 or enter your details online at www.windtech-international.com. Our free offer still stands.
