Big reference book on wind power with examples 24 février 2012
Par Joanna Daneman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I spend a lot of time discussing alternative energy with people for various reasons (professional and personal.) One topic comes up all the time here in Delaware; wind power. Finally, I have a resource to point people to go read that discusses many of the issues of wind power that make for a complex topic. I've been aware of environmental issues for this power method for quite some time; for example the first installations in northern Germany went onto farms, but it was found that light flickering through the blades made the wind turbines an unpleasant neighbor near houses. Meanwhile, here in the US, we are on a major bird migration route in the Delaware Bay. Despite the alluring fact that the bay is windy, what is the impact of installing a water wind farm on the wildlife?

This book covers the topics of environmental impact as well as how to implement such a project with examples from the UK and Germany. In Germany (as I alluded to in the last paragraph) wind power has been used for quite some time--decades. These days, wind turbines are frequently found in landfills, but offshore wind is still being analyzed, and the studies are discussed in this book. Issues such as permits, maintenance, training personnel, QA/QC and installation methods are included.

This book has much information from actual wind projects, and I think it's a must-read for anyone interested in the technology. I admit to being both attracted to windpower (the source is, in essence, free and in some areas, almost constant) and at the same time, it has inherent inefficiencies, environmental and maintenance issues that make it less the "free lunch" that some would think wind power could be. If you are on a citizen's study committee or any political body in your area that is considering wind power projects, you should read this book and give a copy to anyone on a committee that is studying feasibility.

Competent "how to" overview for offshore wind 31 décembre 2011
Par John C. Wiegard - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Kurt Thomsen is the architect/crane operator who spent the past ten years installing offshore wind turbines in the waters surrounding Denmark. This book is Thomsen's effort to distill the knowledge he gained in that experience gained in the birth time of offshore wind down into a usable overview. It serves as a sort of "best management practices" document, a how-to manual intended to answer the major questions that would arise in the process of planning, installing, and maintaining an offshore wind farm in real world conditions. Safety, financial considerations, and environmental concerns are all addressed, and the photographs and index are useful. But at only 300 odd pages, it is probably not detailed enough to create an expert from scratch.

This book is NOT intended to serve as an exploration of the role of renewable energies such as wind in fighting global warming. There is no material on the politics of energy here, as it assumes that the reader is beyond that and simply wants guidance on getting the job done. As a non-engineer, some of this material went over the head of this reader, but Thomsen does come across as a knowledgeable person with good advice to share. While pricey, this book would be required basic reading for anyone intending to be involved in the actual operation of the offshore wind industry. After all, buying this book would be a bargain if it resulted in avoiding a million-dollar design, engineering, or safety error!
A good starting point for the study of offshore wind farms and the challenges presented when they go up 12 mai 2013

Alternative energy is one of the key terms of the 21st Century, yet very few people stop to consider how these systems get implemented. Kurt Thomsen's "Offshore Wind: A Comprehensive Guide to Successful Offshore Wind Farm Installation" is exactly what its name implies - it is a very thorough study on the challenges and opportunities presented by the development of offshore wind farms. Terrestrial farms have their own issues, but nothing like the kinds of engineering and environmental difficulties that rise up like an ocean tide to slow the progress of these remarkably efficient offshore generators. Thomsen isn't targeting the casual reader with this book; rather, he is focused on the real-world (and sometimes highly technical) challenges that organizations have to overcome in order to derive the ROI possible from an offshore farm. If you're part of one of those organizations, then this is required reading.
Not for a curious reader, but lots of detail 5 avril 2013

This is only one reader's opinion...

Sometimes when topics are heavily discussed in the news, one wants to read more about it.

Renewable energy is a hot topic. After driving past countless land-based wind turbines during two consecutive summer road trips, I saw this book and was curious. I'd hear about offshore windfarming on NPR shortly before.

I didn't find this book to be very accessible to the average curious reader. Clearly suited as an assigned text for the academic setting, but not one that would carry the interest of a person only slightly less than ignorant of the subject. It reminded me of one of the books that gets referenced in a more digestible read.

Informative, not accessible.
A how-to guide, rather than a 'why should I' discussion. Fairly technical. Good level of detail for a general manager. 22 octobre 2012
Par D. Brennan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I have clients who buy components for wind towers from us. My goal was to find a book that describes the concerns they have in erecting wind towers - if I understand their problems, I can better provide solutions.

To be honest some of the technical discussion went over my head, but only occasionally. The vast majority of this book was understandable for someone with some background in construction or engineering. The author - both an architect and a crane operator who has worked in wind tower construction for a decade - provides a practical how-to guide for the construction of these projects. Denmark is way ahead of the U.S. market in the construction of wind farms. If wind power has a larger energy role in the future of the United States - and that is now debatable as the Federal Government allows tax credits for the industry to expire - we will need to educate a large number of workers in the design and construction of towers, energy transmission facilities, logistics, etc. Part of that education process involves practical considerations that are usually learned 'on the job'. Unfortunately on-the-job learning can be expensive and dangerous.

I appreciate the level of detail provided in this book.
