Germany’s Offshore Nightmare


The belief that bigger is better is seldom true. No more so at the mammoth Bard 1 offshore wind farm in Germany where connection problems have turned a world beating project into a total nightmare. Much is technical and way above me and cost saving may have more than a little influence. The story is here and has been culled from the German Der Speigel newspaper. Perhaps the Moray wind farm should read the details and wonder whether they have bitten off a little more than they can chew! We talk of erecting test sites and yet all the testing has been done and the experience has been learned already. Do we really think we can re-invent the wheel.

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
