FTI Intelligence Releases preliminary Wind Turbine OEM Rankings and Highlights from yet another excellent FTI report

In SINDAL’s capacity as exclusive marketing and sales agent in the Americas for wind energy reports published by FTI Intelligence, we are excited to introduce you to FTI Intelligence’s preliminary highlights from the coming report: Global Wind Market Update – Demand and Supply 2014.

The policy framework for the energy sector absorbed much of the attention and discussion at the Danish Wind Industry Association's 2013 annual general meeting, with industry leaders calling for political stability while at the same time recognizing that the wind industry itself must take responsibility for reducing costs.

Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners has completed a C$450 million bond issuance for its 166MW Comber Wind farm in Ontario, the first broadly marketed and rated wind financing in Canada.

The senior bonds, rated BBB by the rating agency DBRS, bear an all-in interest rate of 5.13% and fully amortize over a period of 17.7 years.

“The transaction was oversubscribed with significant demand resulting in the participation of more than 25 investors. As the first public wind deal in Canada, the offering attracted many institutions new to the sector and should help to increase and diversify future financing opportunities for renewable power companies and investors alike,” says chief financial officer Sachin Shah.

The preliminary results show GE Wind is replacing VESTAS as the global market leader with SIEMENS at a 3rd position followed by ENERCON, Germany, and Suzlon, India.
We observe no Chinese wind turbine manufacturers are among the top-5 global wind turbine OEM'S.
