DONG Energy has recorded a 32% increase in earnings from operating offshore wind farms in the first half of 2017 as compared to the same period a year earlier.Power generation from offshore wind increased by 34%, to 3.9TWh in H1 2017, as a result of newly constructed and commissioned offshore wind farms in Germany and the UK – the 258MW Burbo Bank Extension and the 582MW Gode 1 and 2. Offshore wind power accounted for 45% of the company’s total power generation.The 573MW Race Bank offshore wind farm in the UK produced its first power during the period as well.Revenue in the company’s Wind Division stood at DKK 10.9 billion (EUR 1.5 billion) in the first half of 2017, with gross investments reaching DKK 5.9 billion.The division’s underlying operating profit (EBITDA) for the period was DKK 6.3 billion, as compared to DKK 5.2 billion reported in H1 2016.Wind conditions were close to the norm in the first half of 2017, DONG said, and the availability of offshore wind farms was high, resulting in solid earnings from the company’s existing wind farms.Following the agreement to divest 50% of the company’s ownership interest in the German offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2 in 2017 instead of in 2018, DONG raised its 2017 EBITDA guidance for the continuing operations from DKK 15-17 billion to DKK 17-19 billion. This corresponds to an underlying growth of 18-32%.The company’s gross investments for 2017 are still expected to amount to DKK 18-20 billion.”Within one to two years we will likely have excess investment capacity compared to the target rating of BBB+/Baa1, assuming the current dividend policy, the current farm down model, the current Wind Power build out plan as well as the ambition of a 1 GW per year offshore wind build out from 2021-2025 are continued,” Henrik Poulsen, DONG Energy’s CEO and President, said.”The likely excess investment capacity materialises as more and more Wind Power assets come on line and start generating cash flow and has recently been positively impacted by the experienced decline in the build out cost per MW (LCoE). Value-enhancing, green growth opportunities beyond the current investment plan will thus be explored against tight strategic and financial criteria. This could naturally include additional opportunities within offshore wind – which remains our core focus – as well as other renewable technologies and within our downstream, customer-facing business.”Following the farm down of Borkum Riffgrund 2 and the expected farm downs of Walney Extension and Hornsea 1, DONG Energy will only consider farm downs subject to substantial value creation and risk diversification, Poulsen said.

Statehouse— State Sens. Jean Leising and Chip Perfect presented House Concurrent Resolution 32, which honors The National FFA Organization for its work to advance the quality of agricultural education, at the Statehouse Monday. FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. The National FFA Organization was established in 1928 and Indiana FFA was started in 1929. Currently, there are 211 chapters in Indiana with 12,500 members.“Farmers are often underappreciated for their talents, working in hazardous and stressful conditions to provide for us,” Leising said. “HCR 32 pays respect to an organization that goes above and beyond to educate and encourage our future agricultural workforce. Farmers in Indiana contribute more than $31.2 billion to our economy, making our state one of the largest agricultural exporters in the nation. Our state is better because of the young men and women in the National FFA Organization, and I commend them for their accomplishments.”“I applaud Hoosier youth who join their local FFA chapter,” Perfect said. “As a former member of the FFA many of the ideals I learned through the program I actively practice today. I was awarded several opportunities I would not have otherwise had, if I had not joined FFA and I encourage those passionate about agriculture to consider joining this program.”

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman stood still on the court. Wake Forest head coach Jen Hoover trotted onto it grinning ear to ear. Hillsman’s players walked toward him as he waited for a team manager to hand him a whiteboard. The Demon Deacons leapt off the bench, running to greet their teammates.Six minutes earlier, the game was tied at 46. But with eight minutes left, WFU held a 13-point lead. The Orange had missed six of its last nine shots, prompting Hillsman to call a timeout.“We weren’t scoring,” Hillsman said. “That was the biggest thing. We didn’t score the basketball for a large chunk of the game and when we get into those droughts where we don’t score, that means we can’t press. That’s our game.”And since fifth-seeded SU (21-9, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) wasn’t able to play its game, it fell to 13th-seeded Wake Forest (12-20, 2-14) 85-79 in the second round of the ACC tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. No. 22 Syracuse’s next game won’t come until the NCAA tournament, which doesn’t start until March 20.The Demon Deacons – who outrebounded the Orange by 10 – relied on a 22-5 second-half run to propel them to the upset win while two of Syracuse’s best three rebounders, Briana Day and Taylor Ford, sat on the bench for large portions of that run before each fouled out.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe run began when Amber Campbell hit a jumper to tie the game at 48 and then Wake Forest scored the next nine points. The crowd of 9,386 grew louder with each basket as the lead grew at the same time.“Our emphasis was to get stops,” Demon Deacons head coach Jen Hoover said. “… We really felt that in the half court, we could force them to one shot and if we would get stops, we would run out and we knew we wouldn’t have to face the press.”WFU beat Syracuse at its strong suit with easy layups in transition with 36 points in the paint and 15 on fast breaks. The Orange prides itself on forcing turnovers, pushing the tempo and pressing after made basket. But since SU’s shots weren’t falling, Wake Forest took advantage.Day grabbed just one rebound in 13 minutes against Dearica Hamby, the ACC’s third-best rebounder and scorer. Ford was Syracuse’s leading rebounder but only played 20 minutes. Each of them had three fouls by halftime, forcing Syracuse to go to its backup centers Bria Day and Amber Witherspoon.“The key to this game was we didn’t have our best players on the floor,” Hillsman said.When either Bria Day or Witherspoon made a productive play, Briana Day and assistant coach Sasha Palmer would stand up and cheer them on from the bench. But those moments were rare, as Hamby and forward Kandice Ball combined for 37 points.When Day committed her fifth and final foul, her jaw dropped in disbelief.On WFU’s next possession, Millesa Calicott nailed a 3 to put the Demon Deacons up by 15, its largest lead of the game. She celebrated by lifting three fingers in the air and jamming them into the side of her head as she spun around and jogged back on defense after yelling with excitement.“They just happened to get their run at the right time,” Alexis Peterson said. “We just wanted to stay composed, stay poised and keep turning them over and keep playing hard.”And Syracuse had its opportunities at the end. The Orange went on a 13-2 run to make it a three-point game with 45 seconds left courtesy of three 3-pointers.Wake Forest’s Ataijah Taylor missed a shot with 24 seconds left and the game depended on the ensuing rebound. Players from both teams sprawled across the court and the ball ricocheted around the paint before ultimately landing in Hamby’s hands. Had SU gotten the board, it would’ve had a chance to send the game to overtime.But that chance never came and fittingly, the game’s most important moment was a rebound that Syracuse couldn’t control.“If you look at the stat line, it’s amazing,” Hillsman said. “It tells a story.” Comments Published on March 5, 2015 at 1:02 pm Contact Paul: firstname.lastname@example.org | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+
