ENERCON CEO Momme Janssen in Husum: ‘A successful wind industry requires a functioning domestic market’
ENERCON CEO Momme Janssen spoke on the high-profile panel in Husum Wind. ‘Creating new added value with wind energy’ is the subject of the Prime Panel at the HUSUM WIND trade fair. There he emphasised the relationship between the economic welfare of the wind energy sector and the local expansion of renewable energies: ‘There cannot be any successful manufacturers, suppliers or project developers in Germany without a functioning domestic market’, said Janssen, and was met with applause from the approximately 150 industry experts in attendance. The ENERCON CEO added that the domestic market is also the key prerequisite for the wind energy sector to develop exportable innovations that will drive forward the global energy transition. Schleswig-Holstein’s Minister of Economic Affairs Dr Bernd Buchholz (FDP) underlined the hard work done by state politicians to ensure better framework conditions for wind energy. Momme Janssen and President of the German Wind Energy Association (BWE) Hermann Albers both recognised the progress made by Schleswig-Holstein in terms of land designation and approvals. At the same time, all the panelists made it clear that Germany needs to quickly and significantly increase its nationwide efforts in order to be able to satisfy the enormous demand for green energy, for example for the electrification of industrial processes.
BWE President Hermann Albers expressed confidence that the reorganisation of industry to a renewable energy supply – for example through the use of green energy – would establish a new basis for the creation of industrial added value in Germany. However, he went on, this requires politicians to make a clear commitment to wind energy as a key player for the energy transition. For this reason, the BWE has passed the ‘Husum Appeal’ at the last big industry event before the federal elections. It contains the key political demands of around 80 companies, associations and institutions from the wind energy sector. ENERCON made a considerable contribution to this appeal and was one of the first signatories. Because, as Momme Janssen says: ‘What is important is a swift restart and a reliable political course leading to investment security and an ability to plan for the wind industry.’ An investment-friendly climate for wind energy in Germany is the prerequisite for the creation of new added value and achieves acceptance as a result, explained Janssen in Husum. He also warned of politically-induced market fluctuations happening again, like the 80 per cent collapse in German wind energy expansion after 2017: ‘No industry can take a dent like that twice’, warned Janssen. With a view to approval processes and the rate of expansion, the motto is now: ‘Low complexity – high speed!’
Wärtsilä finalises commissioning of its first two Energy Storage projects in the Philippines
The technology group Wärtsilä has signed multiple energy storage contracts with SMC Global Power Holdings Inc. through its subsidiary, Universal Power Solutions Inc., in the Philippines during 2019-2020. The first two projects, Integrated Renewable Power Hub-Toledo and BCCPP, Limay, Bataan, have achieved final commissioning in May. The projects have a capacity of 20 MW / 20 MWh and 40 MW / 40MWh respectively, and are part of the earlier announced energy storage orders.
These are the first energy storage systems supplied by Wärtsilä to the Philippines. The projects are delivered on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis, and include Wärtsilä’s propriety software and hardware solutions. The systems comprise the company’s GridSolv Max system, a standardised energy storage solution that provides flexible and modular storage for the core hardware assets of the systems, including the batteries, a safety and fire system, and inverters, alongside the advanced GEMS Digital Energy Platform.
“Our partnership with SMC Global Power, a company with technical experience in battery energy storage systems, has enabled us to reach this stage and be ready for operation in record time. This also further demonstrates Wärtsilä’s EPC capabilities in the region, as well as our ability to operate under the challenging restrictions set by the pandemic. These projects showcase our long-term commitment to be present in the Philippines and to continue delivering optimised solutions that support the energy transition in Southeast Asia,” commented Kari Punnonen, Director, Australasia, Wärtsilä Energy.
Wärtsilä is enabling the transition towards a 100% renewable energy future by designing and building flexible systems that integrate renewable energy sources, thermal assets and energy storage. In 2018, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) committed to meeting 23 percent of its primary energy needs from renewables by 2025. The region aims to leverage its abundant wind and solar resources and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, especially as grid systems are developing and economies growing. Wärtsilä’s energy storage projects will contribute to the reliability necessary to support Southeast Asia’s transition to carbon-free resources.
Wärtsilä’s GEMS Digital Energy platform dynamically manages the integration of intermittent renewables, thereby enabling the grid to become more responsive and stable. The GEMS grid applications include voltage and frequency regulation, reactive power support, spinning reserve, ramp rate optimisation, renewable energy output smoothing, and energy arbitrage.
Reaching this important milestone in the project execution is another endorsement of Wärtsilä’s delivery capabilities. Wärtsilä has a strong presence in Southeast Asia with a total installed capacity of over 9,000 MW, of which 2,000 MW were executed as EPC deliveries, including approximately 300 MW of contracted energy storage systems.
DIF Capital Partners invests in 108 MW onshore wind project portfolio in Poland
DIF Capital Partners is pleased to announce that DIF Infrastructure Fund VI has acquired 100% of four onshore wind projects in Poland, with a total capacity of 108 MW. DIF acquired the projects from German wind project developer Sabowind. As the projects are ready to build, DIF will invest throughout the construction of the projects.
The wind projects are located across Poland. Construction commenced upon closing of the transaction and the projects are expected to become operational by Q3 2022 (two projects) and Q1 2023 (two projects). The projects benefit from contracts-for-difference with the Polish state, providing fixed price tariffs for the power offtake for a period of 15 years.
The total production is estimated to be c. 300 GWh per year, which is the equivalent to the annual power consumption of around 75,000 households; thereby avoiding around c. 100,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year from fossil fuels. The projects will support Poland’s energy transition by expanding the country’s renewable energy capacity and reducing dependency on power production from fossil fuels.
Christopher Mansfield, Partner at DIF Capital Partners, said: “DIF is delighted to enter into its second onshore wind transaction in the Polish renewables market and to support Poland’s ongoing energy transition. The projects fit well within the investment strategy of DIF Infrastructure Fund VI and with the earlier acquired Polish projects form an attractive wind portfolio with a total capacity of 171 MW, which is expected to be fully operational within the next 24 months. The transaction once again underlines DIF’s strong position in and commitment to the renewable energy market.”
