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.

Known as the Brigg Renewable Energy Plant, the facility is capable of generating 40MW of electricity every hour. It uses approximately 250,000 tons of straw sourced from local farmers. This clean energy will be enough to power 75,000 homes and reduce 250,000 tons of CO2 annually.

Danish firm Burmeister & Wain Energy (BWE) has supplied the boiler for the plant, which uses technology supplied by Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC) under a turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction contract.

As part of an operation and maintenance agreement, BWSC will operate and maintain the plant over a period of 15 years.

"The biomass plant uses approximately 250,000 tons of straw sourced from local farmers."

BWSC’s CEO Anders Heine Jensen said: "We have worked closely with the North Lincolnshire Council and many other statutory agencies, and it is the joint effort of all parties involved in the project, which have resulted in it being delivered ahead of time and within budget."

In addition, the project launched an initial three-year Community Benefit Fund that will contribute annual £50,000 grants to the local community.

PensionDanmark’s CEO Torben Möger Pedersen said: "We are very pleased with the cooperation of CIP and BWSC. With the joint venture, we have found a model that provides PensionDanmark with a stable return with limited risks.

"At the same time, we are helping to increase Danish energy technology exports. We therefore see strong potential in these types of partnerships."
