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 north-west of Aggersund bridge in Northwestern Jutland, the Thorup-Sletten project will be the largest in the country.

Siemens Gamesa will supply 18 units of the 4.3MW model with 130m rotors for the project. With a total capacity of 77MW, the electricity generated by the turbines will be sufficient to power approximately 65,000 households.

Installation works at the site is expected to begin later this year in October.

“This is more proof that onshore wind should continue to be an important part of the energy mix to keep Denmark at the forefront when it comes to wind energy.”

Eurowind Energy CEO Jens Rasmussen said: “We are proud of being the developer behind the largest onshore project in Denmark. This is more proof that onshore wind should continue to be an important part of the energy mix to keep Denmark at the forefront when it comes to wind energy.

“We have chosen Siemens Gamesa because we looked around in the market to find a turbine that is both a great match for these very windy conditions and can deliver high product quality and a highly competitive price.

“The upgrade of the turbine from 3.6 to 4.3MW together with the 130 metres rotor was important to get the lowest cost per KWh produced.”

Additionally, Siemens Gamesa will maintain the wind farm for a period of 20 years via a long-term service programme made specifically for Eurowind.

Siemens Gamesa North Europe and Middle East Onshore Business Unit CEO Steven Pryor said: “Of course it means a lot to us to win this bid from Eurowind and to be able to continue driving the transformation to renewables in Denmark.

“We are constantly working to offer innovation, technology and solutions tailored to the needs of the individual customer.”
