Hurricane Epsilon Marks 10th Hurricane of the 2020 Hurricane Season

BOSTON, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — ClimaCell, the world’s leading All-in-One Weather Intelligence Platform™, tweeted that Tropical Storm Epsilon has now been upgraded to a Category 3 Hurricane, with maximum sustained winds at 115 mph, marking the 10th hurricane of a jam-packed 2020…

BOSTON, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — ClimaCell, the world’s leading All-in-One Weather Intelligence Platform™, tweeted that Tropical Storm Epsilon has now been upgraded to a Category 3 Hurricane, with maximum sustained winds at 115 mph, marking the 10th hurricane of a jam-packed 2020 season, and the 26th named storm overall.

Residents of Bermuda have been placed on tropical storm watch in the meantime, and the surrounding areas are on a lower warning.

Epsilon’s Unpredictable Path

Epsilon has been given hurricane forecasters quite some difficulty in working out both its future path and its likely intensity. Epsilon is forecast to move west-northwest for the rest of the week, before eventually turning on itself towards the east.

It’s not forecast to make landfall around the United States. However, it is expected to continue moving towards warmer sea temperatures, although these waters’ surface heat is also expected to drop within the next 48-36 hours, likely weakening Epsilon as they do.

The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season

2020 has seen an overall increase in both predicted and actual storm systems and hurricanes.

A pre-season forecast initially predicted around 15 named storms, including seven hurricanes and four major hurricanes.

As of today, towards the end of the season, there have been 26 named storms, 10 hurricanes, and five major hurricanes.

Hurricane Epsilon’s appearance has broken the record of being the earliest named 26th storm system of any Atlantic hurricane season, beating the previous record of 2005’s also-named Hurricane Epsilon.

Coincidentally, the most active hurricane season on record was also in 2005, where 28 tropical cyclones formed, 15 of which evolved into hurricanes, including the infamous, highly destructive Hurricane Katrina.

ClimaCell will be keeping you up to date with everything you need to know about Hurricane Epsilon, in real-time, so keep up to date by checking back here.

CALGARY, AB, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – TransAlta Renewables Inc. (“TransAlta Renewables” or the “Company”) (TSX: RNW) announced today that Southern Cross Energy (“SCE”) has amended and extended its current power purchase agreement (“PPA”) with BHP Billiton Nickel West Pty Ltd (“BHP”) in respect of SCE’s 245 MW of generation facilities in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. The amendment to the PPA replaces the previous contract that was scheduled to expire December 31, 2023. The Company owns an indirect economic interest in SCE.  

“This is an exciting announcement for our Australian business and continues a strong relationship with our customer BHP Nickel West,” said John Kousinioris, President and Chief Executive Officer of TransAlta Renewables. “Western Australia is an important market for us, where we have been operating for over 24 years.”

The PPA amendment extends the term to December 31, 2038 and provides SCE with the exclusive right to supply electrical energy to BHP’s mining operations located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. The amendment preserves SCE’s current economic benefit to 2023, while also providing SCE a return of and on new capital investments which will be required to support BHP’s future power requirements and recently announced emission reduction targets. The PPA provides BHP with the ability to integrate renewable electricity generation, including solar and wind, with energy storage technologies, to meet its emissions reduction targets and deliver lower carbon, sustainable nickel to its customers. The amended PPA also provides BHP participation rights in new capital investments, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.    

The evaluation of renewable energy supply and carbon emissions reduction initiatives under the extended PPA with SCE are already under way, including an 18.5 MW solar photovoltaic farm at Nickel West’s Leinster and Mount Keith operations, supported by a battery energy storage system. A 17 MW waste heat steam turbine system at the Kalgoorlie Smelter is also being evaluated to provide low-emissions electricity from furnace heat recovery.
