Today, five villages in Dutch municipality of Noordoostpolder received the first annual contribution of EUR 10,000 each, and will receive the sum from the of Noordoostpolder wind project over the next 20 years.The community fund will thus award EUR 200,000 per village over the 20 years, and EUR 1 million overall.The villages Creil, Espel, Nagele, Rutten and Tollebeek can invest the amount into promotion and development.The province/municipality receives EUR 60,000 annually that are, among other things, used for the operation of the visitors center 11BEAUFORT in Nagele. Also, approximately sixty households closest to the wind turbines receive a fee of about EUR 1,800 euros, covering an average annual electricity bill.The Noordoostpolder Wind Farm wind farm consists of 86 wind turbines, 48 of which are in the water – the Westermeerwind wind farm. The project is able to supply more than 400,000 households with clean energy. The Noordoostpolder Wind Farm has been developed by three partners, each building and exploiting their share of the 86 turbines: Westermeerwind, NOP Agrowind and RWE.
TRANSFORMER: ABB has developed a traction transformer that uses power electronics to reduce size and weight while increasing energy efficiency.The Power Electronic Traction Transformer is based on multi-level converter topology that uses IGBT power semiconductors and medium-frequency transformers to replace the conventional transformer and inverter combination. The medium-frequency transformer also reduces noise levels. The pilot application of PETT is a 4500 kg unit with a nominal rating of 1·2 MW and short-term peak of 1·8 MW which has been fitted to a 15 kV 16·7 Hz Swiss Federal Railways Ee933 shunting locomotive used at Genève Cornavin station.‘The innovative use of power semiconductors in a core component such as traction transformers opens up new opportunities for rail markets around the world, and should be extendable across a range of other applications,’ according to Markus Heimbach, head of the Transformers business within ABB’s Power Products division. ‘In addition to its weight and size advantages, the new PETT helps improve efficiency and reduces noise levels.’
