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.

Located in the German North Sea, Gode Wind 1 offshore wind farm commenced its operations in February 2017 and was developed and constructed by Ørsted.

The interest is being acquired from Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), who hold a 50% stake in the project. TRIG’s portfolio capacity increases to 1,446MW with this acquisition.

TRIG chairman Helen Mahy said: “The board of TRIG is delighted to make the company’s second investment in offshore wind in this important market.

“Offshore wind has developed into an attractive investment category and has been growing at pace in Germany over the last four years. TRIG now has investments in each of the two largest offshore wind markets in the world.”

Ørsted owns the other 50% of the equity in the project. It will continue to own the interest and also provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services under a 20-year contract.

The wind farm is equipped with 55 6MW turbines installed by Siemens Gamesa and will be supported by a feed-in-tariff until November 2027.

London-listed investment company TRIG is advised by InfraRed Capital Partners as an investment manager, with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) serving as operations manager.

InfraRed Capital Partners official Richard Crawford said: “We are pleased to be shareholders alongside Ørsted who have a strong demonstrable track record in the global offshore wind industry.

“Our ability to source, manage and execute deals in the space is particularly important given the future direction of the European renewables market and the critical importance of offshore wind to meeting climate change targets.”

TRIG intends to use the proceeds and a drawdown of the group’s revolving acquisition facility to finance the transaction.
