News review: Siemens Gamesa 4.X defects | Ukraine’s resistance | China, US & UK | WindEurope 2024 Wind Power

    • Business

This time on the news review: Our panellists discuss the continuing issues with Siemens Gamesa’s 4X platform, after a wind project supplied with the turbines in Norway was shut down when a turbine blade broke.
A Russian drone attack on a Ukrainian energy substation left 200,000 people without power but are wind turbines are more resilient than other energy infrastructure and is wind power becoming emblematic of Ukraine’s - and the EU’s - resistance to Russia’s aggression?
Meanwhile, two reports showed respectively that Chinese manufacturers dominated global turbine supply in 2023 and that US turbine firm GE Vernova similarly dominated the US market. But is China is caught in a trap of its own making, with more than 95% of the supplied turbines installed in its domestic market, and is GE Vernova also playing it safe on home turf?
Meanwhile, the UK government approved an additional £800m to boost strike prices for offshore wind in the forthcoming AR6 tender round but wind industry voices are still calling it a missed opportunity - are they right?
And finally, what were our panellists most important takeaways from WindEurope’s annual conference in Bilbao?
