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.

Under the contract, Nordex will supply 50 of its N155/4.X turbines that belong to the Delta4000 series. They will operate with a rated power of 4.8MW per wind turbine.

It will be the first time that N155/4.X Delta4000 turbines will be installed in the US region.

Featuring a 155m rotor diameter, the N155/4.X turbines are said to be suitable for regions with lower turbulence and medium wind speeds.

The company further added that the turbines are suitable for sites where strict regulatory requirements for sound emissions are in place.

This applies to locations in large parts of the US, Latin America, South Africa and Spain.

In July, Nordex secured a wind turbine supply and installation contract in Spain from Israeli power utility Enlight Renewable Energy for the 312MW Gecama wind farm.

Located near Cuenca in the region of Castilla-La Mancha, Gecama, is the first wind project for Enlight Renewable Energy in Spain, as well as the first joint project with Nordex Group” target=”_blank”>Nordex Group .
