Orders For Wind Turbines Fell Sharply In The First Half To 11.6GW

- Dec 26, 2017-

Global wind turbine orders totaled 11.6 gigawatts in the first half of 2017, according to a report by Navigant Research, a market-research firm.

This is down from 14.7 gigawatts in the second half of 2016 and 13.4 gigawatts in the first half of 2016.

According to the report, the slide may partly be attributed to the shift from the feed-in tariff in India to the auction system.

Navigant said, despite the recent global wind power industry is the impact of the two big mergers and acquisitions, the German company acquired in the spring of 2016 Spanish Acciona endor, merger earlier this year, Siemens and song beauty sayin, but it is difficult to judge orders related to mergers and acquisitions.The report tracks all publicly announced orders for wind turbines, excluding Chinese market orders.

In January and June, Denmark's vestas wind systems was once again the world's largest supplier of wind turbines, with orders of about 4.3 gigawatts.Ge came in second, while Siemens' msa sa renewable energy, sushland energy and Senvion ranked third, fourth and fifth respectively.
