Hitachi Energy supports huge step in Germany’s energy transition

HVDC Light® transmission system will transfer vast amounts of renewable energy for up to 5 million households and help Germany achieve its 2045 carbon neutrality goal

Zurich, Switzerland, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hitachi Energy, a global technology leader that is advancing a sustainable energy future for all, today announced it has won a major order from TenneT and TransnetBW, two of Germany’s four transmission system operators, to supply a transmission solution for the SuedLink DC4 high-voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnection between the north and south of the country.

SuedLink DC4 is one of the most important power grid and energy transition projects in Germany. It will play a crucial role in Germany’s energy transition, enabling a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and helping the country achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.*1

Using Hitachi Energy’s HVDC Light® technology, SuedLink DC4 will transfer up to 2,000 megawatts of emission-free electricity, enough to power 5 million German households.*2 The link will efficiently transmit electricity for 550 kilometers underground, at ±525 kilovolts, sending wind power from the north to the industrial south, or alternatively solar power from the south to the north when needed.

“We are proud to play a crucial role in this very important investment in Germany’s transition to renewable energy and carbon neutrality,” said Niklas Persson, Managing Director of Hitachi Energy’s Grid Integration business. “HVDC Light is the enabling technology for large-scale transfers of renewable energy, both onshore and offshore.”

“SuedLink will form the backbone of the energy transition in Germany. With the award of the DC4 high-voltage direct current system to Hitachi Energy, we are now moving towards the realization of this important power link,” says Tim Meyerjürgens, Chief Operations Officer of TenneT.

Hitachi Energy will supply an HVDC Light converter station at each end of SuedLink DC4 to convert AC power from the transmitting grid to DC for delivery through the link, and back to AC for transfer to the receiving grid. The contract includes three cable section stations to speed up fault detection in the link.

As part of its long-term commitment to Germany’s energy transition, Hitachi Energy has recently won or completed orders for solutions that integrate large-scale renewables*3. These include the converter stations for the NordLink*4 HVDC interconnector between Germany and Norway, the converter stations for the connection of the 900-megawatt DolWin5 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea, the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution which connects the German power grids with two offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea and Denmark, and power quality solutions to enable more renewable energy to flow from north to south Germany.

Note to editors:

Hitachi Energy’s HVDC solution combines world-leading expertise in HVDC converter valves; the MACH™ digital control platform*5, which enables renewables integration and manages voltage and frequency disturbances in the grid; converter power transformers and high-voltage switchgear; as well as system studies, design and engineering, supply, installation supervision and commissioning.

HVDC Light® is a voltage source converter technology developed by Hitachi Energy. It is the preferred technology for many grid applications, including interconnecting countries, integrating renewables and “power-from-shore” connections to offshore production facilities. HVDC Light’s defining features include uniquely compact converter stations and exceptionally low electrical losses.

Hitachi Energy pioneered commercial HVDC technology almost 70 years ago and has delivered more than half of the world’s HVDC projects.

International leading scientists issue critical guide for using microbiomes to combat the global issue of biodiversity loss

Beneficial Microorganisms

THUWAL, Saudi Arabia, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A group of leading experts have issued a critical framework for using microbiomes to protect wildlife in an ethical and efficient way.

Beneficial Microbes for Marine Organisms (BMMO), an international network of collaborators with expertise in crosscutting areas of probiotic research, have published a paper in Nature Microbiology, Harnessing the microbiome to prevent global biodiversity loss, that provides a science-based framework to accelerate the responsible research and development of microbiome solutions.

Dr. Raquel Peixoto, founder and co-chair of BMMO, and associate professor of marine science at KAUST, said, “Key ecosystems, which host many forms of life, are at the brink of ecological collapse, driving enormous biodiversity losses and mass extinctions, and disrupting ecosystems central to supporting livelihoods.”

Contributing authors include professors Gabriele Berg of The Graz University of Technology; Christian Voolstra of the University of Konstanz; Ute Hentschel of GEOMAR; Rodrigo Costa of the University of Lisbon; Carlos Duarte of KAUST; and ethicist Jeantine Lunsh of Harvard, among other distinguished academics.

A guide to accelerate the use of macrobiotics to restore coral

The scientists examine the use of probiotics to “reboot” healthy microbiomes and protect key, and sensitive, symbiotic relationships between hosts and their associated microbes. Probiotics are now conventionally applied in agroecosystems, showing that successful applications in open environments are possible with controlled risks.

The team propose a science-based framework, outlining a path from laboratory bench to pilot and large-scale applications of microbiomes, to save threatened ecosystems.

“We as a network of leading scientists are concerned that the technological development of an urgently-needed tool may be delayed by unclear and undefined risk assessment steps,” said KAUST Distinguished Professor of Marine Science Carlos Duarte, who serves as executive director of the Coral Research & Development Accelerator Platform (CORDAP).

“In addition, no ethical discussions are available to provide guidelines and rules to accelerate the transition from devising to applying environmental probiotics in a practical and safe way. Therefore, we are highlighting the path from concept to real-world solutions, addressing ethical considerations, as well as risks against benefits.”

The paper serves to address this gap. The framework also considers the risk of inaction, and can be adapted to other urgent scientific developments.

“Our framework provides a pragmatic regulatory wildlife-adapted tool to guide scientists and stakeholders through the fight against biodiversity loss,” Peixoto said.   “It takes into consideration potential side effects of its application, while also considering the high toll of inaction.”

‘I’m struggling financially – Musician

Takoradi-based hiplife/hiphop artiste, Stephen Siaw, popularly known in the music scene as Ayesem says he’s struggling to cope financially as a celebrity in Ghana.

The former Shocks Entertainment signee mentioned that after exiting his record label, it has been extremely difficult to manage his finances as an individual.

In an interview on Cape Coast-based Kastle FM, the ‘Koti’ hitmaker emphatically declared that doing things on his own has become difficult, especially the monetary aspects.

Ayesem, who sometime ago complained bitterly about some DJs refusal to promote local music said, “Doing stuff on my own is difficult, especially the financial aspects isn’t that easy for me, but then I still have guys who are closer to me and we work together.”

“Financially, it’s not easy for me to cope since I exited Shocks Entertainment, so it’s quite difficult but still the passion keeps me moving all the time,” he added.

Credited with several awards and hit songs, the rapper kicked off his career as a member of the group ‘Trinity’ in 2006. He later formed a music group called ‘2Unit’ with fellow artiste, Nero X.

As a group, their songs received massive radio airplay in the Western and Central regions of Ghana.

Ayesem, who recently criticised radio DJs and presenters for failing to promote his music, has had major collaborations with artistes such as Castro, Old Solja, Kurl Songx, Kofi Kinaata, Epixode, Singlet and a host of others.

He has released a number of hit tunes that have won the hearts of music lovers. Among them is the banger, ‘Koti’, ‘Envy’, ‘Kokotii’, ‘Against’, among others.

Wesley Grammar ’82 alumni support alma mater

Accra, Aug 3 – Home Economics students of the Wesley Grammar High School would heave a sigh of relief after the 1982 year group donated some gas stoves and sowing machines to the school to facilitate teaching and learning.

The addition of the news appliances would enable the 92 students who have had to share five functional gas stoves and seven sowing machines at the department for their practical sessions to have more hands-on learning experience.

Valued at GHC42,000.00, the items which include nine gas stoves, seven manual and three electric sowing machines are expected to ease the burden on the existing ones and improve students’ access to the necessary equipment during practical sessions.

Mrs Mary Bruce, President of the 1982 year group, said the attention of the group was drawn to the challenge facing the Home Economics department, and as part of giving back to their alma mater, the group initiated the project to help resolve the issue.

She said the group was in the process of acquiring additional stoves and sowing machines for the school, but had to present these ones earlier because the final year students were due to take their examinations in three weeks’ time.

“Due to the urgency of the demand, we have decided to present these ones first and present the rest later,” she said.

Mrs Bruce said in consultation with the national executives of the old students association, the 1982 year group would identify other challenges facing the school and help resolve them.

She called on individuals and organisations to extend some support to the school.

Receiving the items, Mr Charles K. Baidoo, Headmaster of the school commended the group for the initiative, and urged other year groups to also identify a need of the school and take it on as a project.

He said the appliances would go a long way in ensuring a conducive teaching and learning experience for the students.
