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.

The project is owned by Gunkul Engineering and it will see the installation of 33 turbines with a total capacity of 67.5MW. Constructed by PowerChina ZhongNan, the farm is located in the province of Nakhon Ratchasima. It is claimed to be the tallest in Asia.

"In designing such tall towers, almost 30m taller than usual for this model, and at a competitive cost, Gamesa's research and development (R&D) team has achieved a major technological feat."

As part of the contract, Gamesa will supply 18 units of the G114-2.0 MW model and 15 of the G114-2.1 MW. The turbines will be equipped with 153m towers, which when added to 56m-long blades will reach a total height of 210m from ground to blade tip. The contract also includes operation and maintenance services for ten years.

Gamesa's marketing director Juan Diego Díaz said: “In designing such tall towers, almost 30m taller than usual for this model, and at a competitive cost, Gamesa's research and development (R&D) team has achieved a major technological feat.

“On the one hand, we reduce the cost of energy of the complex by boosting total output, as the turbines will reach heights at which the wind blows harder. On the other hand, we are demonstrating once again our ability to respond to what the market needs thanks to the versatility of our turbines.”

Gamesa will supply these turbines during the Q1, 2017, and commissioned in Q2.

More than 7,760MW has been installed by Gamesa in the markets of Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, China, and India.
