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.

SGRE has been able to achieve a 10MW rating by increasing the rotor diameter of the turbine to 193m, offering up to 30% more annual energy production (AEP) than its forerunner, the SG 8.0-167 DD. The blades on each of the turbines are 94m, which provides a swept area of 29,300m². The energy production of each turbine is sufficient to supply 10,000 households with electricity.

The new wind turbines will be manufactured at the SGRE factory in Cuxhaven, Germany. SGRE is able to re-use most components from previous turbines, which means that the prototype of the new wind turbine can be installed this year and be ready for the commercial market in 2022.

SGRE offshore business unit CEO Andreas Nauen said: “Siemens Gamesa has been applying its knowledge and experience directly into offshore wind turbines for decades. Utilising proven components and concepts provides us with a strong, established value chain, with clear processes and skilled employees ready to go, leveraging on a fully-developed and industrialised supply chain.”

He added: “New markets are developing across the globe, all of which require cost-efficient, reliable and clean power for generations. The SG 10.0-193 DD enables us […] to meet these needs in close cooperation with our customers, stakeholders, and society at large.”

SGRE currently has an installed capacity of 12.5GW from 3,100 offshore wind turbines globally.
