UK: Boskalis has signed a five-year framework agreement to repair subsea cables for transmission links between the UK's onshore grid and its offshore wind farms.
UNITED STATES: GE Renewable Energy has been selected to service the 1.6GW North American fleet owned by TerraForm Power.
DENMARK: Danish wind production was down 24% year-on-year in June and July, but turbines still produced more than coal, gas, solar PV and biomass combined.
NETHERLANDS: Revenue, earnings and orders in Boskalis' offshore energy segment were down in the first half of the year, but the marine contractor remains positive for the remainder of 2018.
INDIA: The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has launched a request for proposals (RfP) for a 160MW wind-solar-storage project in Andhra Pradesh, southeast India.
AUSTRALIA: Developer Infigen will add a 25MW/52MWh lithium-ion battery to its 278.5MW Lake Bonney project in South Australia.

GERMANY: The discovery of protected species on a potential or operating site is enough to make the hearts of developers and operators sink, but thanks to better understanding and monitoring of wildlife behaviour, there are measures to help wind projects and nature co-exist.
UK: Realism over the challenges that floating offshore faces was balanced by optimism that they will be overcome as experts gathered at the Windpower Monthly forum.
