Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

What are the biggest issues facing users of today’s natural gas engines?

Higher temperatures on pistons, new piston designs and materials, piston deposits causing abrasive wear, reduced oil consumption rates, lower methane numbers in gas causing pre-ignition, engine derating and reduced lubricant life.

How does a product such as Texaco HDAX 9200 help?

The latest generation of advanced technology is specifically designed to extend lubricant life and minimise deposits in the engine. The low ash formulation works with varying gas qualities to provide extended drain periods and reduced deposits in the engine.

What are the biggest concerns customer’s talk to you about?

Reduced drain periods and component life due to changes in engine design and varying gas qualities. TBN retention in the lubricant is becoming the critical measurement for oil drain life.
