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 terms of the agreement, TEKMAR will provide its CPS TekLink Mechanical Latch for the windfarm, which will become the world’s largest offshore windfarm when completed.

TEKMAR will provide 346 cable protection systems and 30 bellmouths, for both array and export cables, protecting all subsea cables as they enter and exit the underwater foundations.

TEKMAR Energy managing director Russell Edmondson said: “We are delighted for TEKMAR to be selected as the cable protection system and bellmouth supplier for Hornsea Two.

“This is one of the most significant projects in the industry to date. This continues TEKMAR ’s excellent relationship with Ørsted and is part of our six-year framework for providing Cable Protection Systems on their future projects.”

The CPS system will be produced at TEKMAR Energy’s manufacturing facility in the North East of England.

Located in the North Sea 89km off the Yorkshire coast, Hornsea Two is the sister project to Hornsea One. It will feature 165 turbines that have a combined capacity to generate 1.4GW of clean energy to power more than 1.3 million homes. It is set for completion in 2022.

Ørsted EPC director Patrick Harnett said: “Hornsea Two is a game-changing renewable energy project in terms of both size and cost.

“The North East continues to play an important role in manufacturing components for our portfolio of world-leading offshore windfarms, with hundreds of Cable Protection Systems, Transition Pieces and kilometres of array cables coming from the region.

“We are very proud to be a part of the ongoing offshore wind development in the region and we are committed to further developing a competitive UK supply chain that can support Ørsted’s projects in the UK and around the world.”
