A Global Market Overview: Last Few Years Trend

first_imgBy Stefano Santoni – Product & Market Manager, Wind Energy & Heavy Duty Division – DAVI.According to the report of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the global offshore wind market experienced a growth of 4.49GW of new capacity in 2018. The Global Wind Report acknowledges that nowadays there’s a total of 23GW of offshore wind capacity installed (20% more than 2017).Listening to what Ben Backwell, CEO of GWEC, said, 2018 can be considered a positive year for wind in all major markets, and China places itself as the leading power both in offshore and onshore projects. In forthcoming years, Asia is expected to be the driving region for wind development, even though this awaited growth is subordinate to an important commitment of the governments with policies fostering the projects in this field. With regards to capacity to be installed until 2023, the contribution needs to come from mature regions like Europe and USA, as well as developing markets in Asia that will have to guarantee a consistent growth.Ideas for the years to comeAn interesting partnership has been revealed to work together in order to develop offshore wind in emerging markets. In fact, the GWEC and the World Bank Group (WBG) are going to be side by side in this effort to make emerging markets ready for new developments of wind energy.The first aim of this cooperation is to raise awareness about offshore wind opportunities in emerging markets. As a starting strategy, the idea is to gather all the stakeholders within the same network, putting together country governments, experts in the field of wind energy, commercial developers, private partners to inform them on all their options and create the perfect groundwork for new projects that could be financed by WBG and IFC. These bodies will involve both public and private partners to carry on technical studies and give life to strategies at national level in order to facilitate the development of offshore wind.To share knowledge and raise awareness in emerging markets, the two bodies will have representatives of the counterpart sitting at their table in order to favor the diffusion of best practices. “Offshore wind is a clean, reliable and secure source of energy. We have seen it work in Europe: we can now make use of global experience to scale up offshore wind projects in emerging markets”, said Riccardo Puliti, Senior Director and Head of Energy and Extractives at the World Bank. The WBG believes in fact that USD 500 billion will be invested in offshore wind projects by 2030. This growth is a great chance for countries with strong resources, such as Brazil, Indonesia, India, the Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. For instance, Vietnam has a technical potential of offshore wind of 309GW, South Africa 356GW and Brazil 526GW, representing a possibility for big offshore wind projects in areas with high energy demand.Source DAVIIncreasing rolling needsIn this perspective of growth, all around the world there will be companies involved in the process of rolling plates for the wind energy sector (no matter talking about towers or foundations). These companies are in need of solutions and customized plate roll that allow to improve the process, save time and roll both cylinders and cones in the smoothest, most accurate and fastest possible way.In case of large diameters components such as Towers, Transition Pieces and Monopiles, or large diameters Pin Piles for jackets, the DAVI 4 rolls plate rolling machine, along with the patented High Productivity Line, is the right answer to fulfill all the requests of this continuously more demanding market.The High Productivity Line is equipped with several accessories, including a special hydraulic aligning system, which are completely managed by CNC.After inserting the geometrical dimension of the final rolled can, along with the plate material data, the patented software calculates and builds up the complete working cycle from the plate positioning and centering phase until the complete conclusion of the rolling operation.Firstly, the special positioning system, located in the infeed conveyor, allows a perfect plate positioning and squaring; it guarantees at least 50% time saving compared to standard manual system.Secondly, after an additional mechanical squaring against the rear side roll, the infeed conveyor tilts to hold the plate while pre-bending; for more accuracy and time saving the front side roll raises to bend the plate and at the same time the conveyor and the front side support rise with full synchronization in order to keep the plate perfectly aligned and on the same level. After the pre-bending operation is completed, the conveyor, the side support and the front side roll move down fully synchronized to bring the plate horizontal and ready to start the rolling phase.With this unique and patented solution, the pre-bending operation is faster, more accurate and totally safe compared to other basic solutions without a tilting conveyor.Once the plate is back in horizontal position, the exit side roll rises up to bend the plate and start the rolling phase. When the can is halfway, the overhead support automatically rises to hold the plate. At the end of the cycle, in case of thin plates rolled at very large diameters, the front side support rises up to prevent the plate collapse and overlapping, thanks to special bearing fingers that hook the plate and pull it back to keep it in a perfect round shape. Finally, the plate is fed for the second pre-bending and the plate forming operation is over.In case of cone forming, the plate rotation is automatically managed by the control system. It is done with a continuous plate rotation in case of thinner plates, while it is intermittent in case of thicker plates; however, it is fully managed through the CNC system in both cases for the most accurate and fastest cone forming process.The whole process, consisting of plate positioning, squaring, rolling, aligning for tack-welding, lasts less than 20 minutes!In particular, the tilting conveyor has many advantages, that range from single pass pre-bending to full pre-bending capacity available, from high accuracy on roundness to no need of re-rolling. But most important is the safety of the process with no risk of plate falling or non-pinching.Source DAVIA solution spread all over the worldHigh Productivity Line is a solution that many renowned companies have already chosen, showing how it is the best available in the market. More than 250 wind energy lines are installed all around the world, in both mature and emerging markets. From Vestas in the United States to Titan Wind in China, from Bladt to EEW and Gestamp in Europe, these are only some of the fully satisfied customers currently working with High Productivity Line for the wind energy sector.The companyBorn in Italy in 1966, DAVI is the world largest manufacturer of heavy duty plate roll, heavy duty angle roll, high productivity lines and customized rolling machines.

Hong)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Eleven thousand, one hundred and fifty-four.And counting.Lou Williams scored a game-high 34 points and became the NBA’s career leader in points off the bench in the Clippers’ 140-115 victory over the Boston Celtics on Monday before a sellout Staples Center crowd of 19,068, including his mother and cousins who made it to the game.Many in the building celebrated Williams’ feat by audibly raining down “Louuuuuuus” on the wily, 6-foot-1 guard enjoying his 14th NBA season. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Williams’ effort – on 14-of-21 shooting from the floor and 4-for-4 from the free-throw line – lifted the Clippers (39-29) to a season-high scoring output their fifth consecutive victory, equaling their longest winning streak of the season.The victory also nudged the Clippers – who shot a season-high 60.9 percent from the field – into sixth place in the Western Conference standings with 14 games left.“We shot the ball well, moved the ball and played at an amazing pace; Lou got the pace started, but I thought the defense early on was terrific as well, and that got us out running,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, whose team outrebounded Boston 47-29 and held the Celtics to 48.4 percent shooting.Before the game, Celtics coach Brad Stevens found himself anticipating Williams’ potential historic production. After all, he’d watched Williams for the first time when he was in high school and recognized it then: The kid was a cold-blooded scorer.“He can walk into the gym and score without warming up,” Stevens said. “Some guys need to get their rhythm established and everything else, but … I walked into an open gym when he was in high school and he was a little bit late and he said, ‘Check ball,’ and killed everybody. He didn’t take a (warm-up) shot, he didn’t do anything, he just killed everybody.“That’s the way he’s been his whole NBA career. He just walks in and scores.”Now he’s walked in and scored more than any other reserve.“I’m gonna try to put it out of reach for sure,” said Williams, who needed only 814 games to catch Curry, whose 11,147 points off the bench came in 984 games. “Jamal (Crawford) is still active, so who knows what he’s capable of, so I’m gonna try to put it out of reach for sure.”In Friday’s win over Oklahoma City, Williams passed Crawford (the 38-year-old former Clipper currently has 11,112 points as a reserve) to move into second place on the list. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, data for reserve scoring dates to the 1970-71 season.Williams’ efforts complemented an offensive onslaught in which all five Clippers starters scored in double figures for the fifth time this season: Danilo Gallinari had 25, Ivica Zubac 14, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 12, Landry Shamet 11 and Patrick Beverley 11. Also off the bench, Montrezl Harrell contributed 20.Related Articles For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates center_img Entering Monday’s game, the Celtics (41-27) had won three consecutive games on their four-game trip through California. Terry Rozier III led Boston with 26 points, while Jaylen Brown added 22 and Kyrie Irving had 18.Williams started cooking Monday with 17 points in the first half, as the Clippers took a 62-49 lead into the break. A Gordon Hayward 3-pointer with 5:04 left in the third quarter pulled Boston to within 81-72 but that was as close as the Celtics got. The Clippers led 101-85 going into the fourth quarter and steadily pulled away.Boston played without Jayson Tatum for the first time this season; the second-year star was sidelined by right shoulder soreness.Recently acquired forward Wilson Chandler made his Clippers debut early in the fourth quarter, finishing with two points, two rebounds and an assist in nine minutes.After the Clippers pulled off a franchise-record 28-point comeback in Boston on Feb. 9 – which was the Celtics’ largest blown lead since 2003, Monday’s point total was the most against the Celtics in 25 years, dating to April 1994. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error With 9:53 left in the game, Williams drove into the paint and flipped a layup over his shoulder to give him 28 points for the night and 11,148 for an illustrious career off the bench – passing Dell Curry’s career total of 11,147 in reserve.“It’s special, man,” Williams said. “Any time you can say you have an ‘all-time’ next to your name, no matter what it is, that’s special. So being sixth man and a career bench player and having the opportunity to be something that says ‘ever’ at the end of it is special for me. So tonight was great.”Williams, 32, played just 23 minutes but still became the fourth player in 35 years to score 34 or more points off the bench in consecutive games. It was Williams’ 29th career game with 30 or more points, and his eighth this season.“What he’s been doing for this team, not only this year but last year, the way he can get better every year, whether it’s passing, shooting percentages, his ability to continue to get better is impressive,” Clippers guard Patrick Beverley said of Williams, who won his second Sixth Man of the Year award last season and figures to be the frontrunner to win it a third time this season.“Best to do it, ever.
