New NPS 60-24 Empowers Wind Energy in Italy

Northern Power Systems Launches New Wind Turbine for Italian Market

BARRE, VT--(Marketwired - July 16, 2014) - Northern Power Systems (www.northernpower.com) (TSX: NPS), a next-generation renewable energy technology company, has launched a new 60 kilowatt (kW) permanent magnet/direct drive wind turbine, the NPS 60-24.

The unit has been specifically engineered for the Italian and other low wind regime markets and can generate up to 15% more energy than the outgoing NPS 60-23. The blade and rotor have been redesigned to maximize annual energy production (AEP), the new nacelle is 30% smaller, and an improved tower configuration provides further operating efficiencies.

The NPS 60-24 is currently exclusively available in Italy. It has been designed to meet local market requirements and government regulations to optimize revenue generating capabilities for owners.

Locally based service teams will help ensure reliability as these new turbines are added to Northern Power Systems' global fleet of 100kW and 60kW turbines.

The fleet has surpassed 5 million run time hours with over 99% grid-connected median availability and zero incidents since its initial product introduction in 2008.

Reinout Oussoren, Northern Power Systems' VP of Global Sales, said, "In 2013, the NPS 60-23 surpassed all previous sales records with triple digit orders coming from the Italian market. Northern Power Systems currently has the largest fleet of 60kW wind turbines in Italy and plans to further expand its market leading position. The NPS 60-24 is designed to meet specific new needs and customer expectations in the Italian market, while increasing the company's addressable market and providing further opportunities for growth."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
