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.

Documentation to gain approval for windfarm developments

In order for work to begin, windpower developments require a number of seperate assessments from surveyors, scientists and engineers. Deutsche WindGuard can provide all necessary documentation without the need for clients to obtain these reports from multiple organisations.

With its accredited wind measurements, clients benefit from the company’s longstanding experience with cup anemometry, as well as ultra-sonic instruments and remote sensing techniques (SoDAR and LiDAR).

The consultancy firm offers bankable wind resource assessments and energy yield predictions, which provide a solid foundation for investment decisions.

The company provides site suitability studies, which analyse the site-specific design parameters of planned windfarms and take turbulence effects into account.

Deutsche Wind Guard can also supply independent reports regarding noise, shadows, visibility, or ice throw.

Feasibility studies for windpower sites

WindGuard’s expertise allows customers to recognise technical risks in advance and safely expand in foreign markets.

The company can deliver expert guidance and studies for many types of public institutions, as well as governments, associations, and private businesses.

WindGuard protects client investments through its reliable tender and contract consulting, feasibility studies, electrical load flow calculation, wind turbine and manufacturer assessment, in addition to its analysis of operating windfarms.

Power curve measurement, type testing and load measurement for wind turbines

WindGuard measurement methods set new quality standards and are accredited by DAkkS. Clients benefit from precise measurements, which are tailored to site conditions and individual requirements.

The company carries out several measurements, without the customer having to appoint any other partners. Tests include power curve, noise, power quality and load measurements for type testing.

Fault ride-through tests (FRT) and grid protection measurements are also provided by the consultancy firm.

Technical inspections and maintenance management of wind turbines

WindGuard performs all necessary technical inspections on turbines, including manufacturing and installation supervision, commissioning and warranty, condition-based gearbox endoscopy, and periodical checks. Services are provided both onshore and offshore.

The company offers its clients manufacturing and installation supervision, in addition to commissioning and periodic inspections.

For reliable windfarm monitoring, WindGuard has created a software tool called WONDER, which is used for technical management.
