The first shipment of Siemens’ gigantic wind turbine components for Thailand’s largest wind power projects arrived at Laem Chabang seaport in Chonburi province last week. Siemens Energy Sector has been awarded two major orders for the supply of 90 wind turbines (SWT-2.3-101) with a capacity of 2.3 MW each to be installed at Thailand’s first major wind farms; Korat 1 and Korat 2 in Huay Bong Sub District & Dan Khun Tot District in Nakorn Ratchasima province. These two wind farm projects will have an installed combined capacity of 207MW (103MW each).


In total, 90 wind turbines for two wind farm projects; Korat 1 (45 wind turbines) and Korat 2 (45 wind turbines) will arrive in the port of Leam Chabang between end of March and October 2012. The installation of both projects, considered as the largest wind farm project in South East Asia, will begin in the second quarter of 2012, while commissioning of the plants are scheduled for the end of 2012 and early of 2013 respectively. They will provide over one GWH per annum of clean energy directly to Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).[/size]


Are these monstrous erections really worthwhile? They cost a fortune, blight the view and produce only a limited amount of power. I wonder how eco-unfriendly is their manufacturing process.

Saf, you are wrong.  The windmills are wonderfully efficient:- At extracting subsidies from the government.  Unfortunately the poor domestic electricity user has to pick up the tab.  There was a wonderful case in the UK a while back.  A company wanted to build a big wind farm in the north of Scotland.  Unfortunately the north of Scotland is sparsely populated and so the project needed very long power lines to get the power to the centres of population.  At this point Ohms Law kicks in and you tend to loose a high percentage of the generated power in the transmission network.  This was not a problem for the lunatics running these schemes.  The solution:  Pay additional subsidies to the generating company to cover the power lost in the transmission network.   Surely the economics of the madhouse.

I think you have it in a nutshell!

The whole thing about global warming is a scam. Scientists who are not paid by governments, the UN and private business are saying that any warming is natural and cyclical. CO2 emissions are 98% natural in origin and, if they are increasing, that increase follows warming and is not the cause.

What's behind it? New industries, more taxes and something more to scare the pants of the gullible.

OK Saf, Yes it is all a big fraud. Good old Al Bore.  On this planet we are so vulnerable to external influences:- The Maunder Minimum to name but one.
