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.

A statement by Deutsche Windtechnik said it will be servicing Mitsubishi wind turbine generators for the first time. Nearly half of all Mitsubishi 1000 and Mitsubishi 1000A wind turbines are located at five Leeward wind farms, covered by the agreement.

These wind farms are Caprock and Aragonne Mesa in New Mexico, Buena Vista in California, Sweetwater in Texas and Cedar Creek in Colorado.

Deutsche Windtechnik CEO Melf Lorenzen said: “These new agreements are an important milestone for our US business unit as we continue to expand our service into new states.

“At the same time, we are delighted to be entrusted with a new wind turbine technology on such a large scale.”

With an installed capacity of 336MW, Sweetwater and Cedar Creek wind farms are the largest of the five.

Under the agreement, work will be carried out in various phases over two months. The company will first start with Sweetwater 4A in Texas this month.

For this contract the company will hire more than 115 additional employees and will set up service offices, use a broader stock of tooling and acquire service vehicles.

Leeward Renewable Energy Interim CEO Jason Allen said: “At Leeward, we are committed to achieving the highest levels of safety, reliability and performance at our wind farms and value a strong partner, like Deutsche Windtechnik, to help us achieve these goals.

“We look forward to expanding our relationship and working together to lower the cost of energy by enhancing the performance of our assets.”

Last year, Deutsche Windtechnik signed a service agreement with Leeward Renewable Energy for 81 Siemens turbines in Texas.
