Williams (DDG 95), USS Cole (DDG 67), USS Ross (DDG 71), guided-missile frigate USS Samuel B Roberts (FFG 58), and fleet replenishment oiler USNS Kanawa (T-AO 196) will participate in the exercise, which is intended to improve interoperability between allied navies in an operationally challenging environment.“Joint Warrior provides our Sailors with an opportunity to work with our coalition partners in a unique tactical environment,” said Capt. Cary Krause, commander, DESRON 26. “This exercise will enhance our ability to operate with our allied navies, and will prepare our participating crews to conduct combined operations during deployment.”The U.S. Navy did not participate in Joint Warrior in 2013 due to budgetary constraints. However, with a new budget in place, the Department of Defense approved the Navy’s participation in Joint Warrior 14-1 because this exercise also serves as a pre-deployment certification event for the participating U.S. ships.“The entire spectrum of planned activities is a chance for our ships to train and hone their skills before their upcoming deployments,” said Krause. “We are thankful for this opportunity and excited to return to Scotland to participate in this exercise with our allies.”Joint Warrior will begin in late March and will last approximately two weeks. It will involve air, sea and ground assets from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Exercise scenarios include small boat attacks, boarding operations, air defense, anti-submarine warfare, and ship maneuverability tasks. More than 30 individual units, including aviation, surface, and subsurface, are participating and playing a distinct role.[mappress]Press Release, March 17, 2014, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Exercise View post tag: Naval View post tag: 26 View post tag: Joint View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Warrior Six ships, led by Commander, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 26, departed the U.S. for Scotland, March 14, to participate in Joint Warrior 14-2, a semiannual, United Kingdom-led training exercise designed to provide NATO and allied forces a unique multi-warfare environment in which to prepare for global operations.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Japan’s power generator JERA Co said on Wednesday it will buy a 49% stake in the Formosa 2 offshore wind project in Taiwan from Macquarie Capital for an undisclosed sum, in a bid to expand its renewable energy portfolio.JERA, a joint venture between Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings and Chubu Electric Power Co, already holds a 32.5% stake in Taiwan’s first commercial offshore wind project Formosa 1, which has 128 megawatts (MW) capacity.The latest investment on the 376 MW project, due to start operation at the end of 2021, will boost JERA’s renewable energy capacity through its equity holdings to 1.2 gigawatts (GW), a step closer to its 2025 renewable target of 5 GW.JERA declined to disclose the size of investment, but its general manager, Ken Matsuda, said the total cost of the Formosa 2 project is expected to be a “few hundred billion yen”.The company is also considering investing in the bigger Formosa 3 project, Matsuda said. “Formosa 3 is still in the early discussion stage and has not been decided, but we are in talks with parties involved with an aim to take a 30-40% stake in the 2 GW project,” Matsuda told a news conference. If agreed and approved by authorities, the Formosa 3 project is expected to start operation over 2026-2030, he added.JERA, Japan’s biggest thermal power generator, is also eyeing investment in offshore wind projects in Japan, Matsuda said. Japanese utilities are stepping up investment in renewable energy projects as they face growing pressure by investors and environment activists to divest coal-fired power plants as well as increasing demand for greener energy from their key customers.More: Japan’s JERA to buy 49% stake in Taiwan’s offshore wind project Japan’s largest thermal power generator boosts investment in offshore wind industry
