Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market Size and Industry Estimated to Rise Profitably with CAGR 11.5% during Forecast Period 2017-2022

“Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market”
Market Research Future published a Half Cooked Research report on “Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market Research Report – Forecast to 2022 ”– Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2022

Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market – Overview

Direct drive wind turbine is a mechanism where the gearbox is eliminated and the power is directly transferred from the motor without any reductions. Direct drive wind turbines usually use either permanent-magnet excited direct drive generator system or electrically excited direct drive synchronous generator system depending upon cost, location, and other constraints. The advantages of direct drive wind turbine are increased efficiency, reduced noise and higher torque with low rpm.

According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, The global market of direct drive wind turbine is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market is forecasted to demonstrate an exponential growth by 2023, surpassing its previous growth records in terms of value with a whooping, double digit CAGR of 11.5% during the estimated period (2017 – 2023).

Increase in demand for energy, especially renewable energy, across the globe is the major factor driving the direct drive wind turbine market. Supportive regulatory environment and shifting focus towards gearless wind turbines from geared wind turbines is also driving the growth of the market. However, variability in wind speed and high capital intensive are the factors may restrict the growth of the market.

Industry News

In February 2017, Siemens has been awarded three contracts for the supply and installation of 13 of its direct-drive wind turbines in Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

September 2016, meeting the growing demand of wind turbines suited for moderate wind speeds, Siemens presents its new wind turbine model SWT-3.6-130. Especially designed for medium wind sites and based on proven Direct Drive technology, the latest addition to the portfolio delivers 3.6 megawatts (MW) of electric power.

Siemens has secured its third wind power order from Japan’s largest wind power developer, Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation. For the 41.6 megawatt Eurus Higashi Yurihara wind power plant, Siemens will provide 13 direct drive wind turbines of the type SWT-3.2-101 rated at 3.2 megawatts each.

Power equipment manufacturer Siemens has won an order to supply, install and commission 24 direct-drive wind turbines for four wind projects in the Nord Pas-de-Calais and Picardie regions in northern France. According to the contract, Siemens will supply the model SWT-3.0-101 wind turbine, each having a capacity of 3MW and a rotor diametre of 101m.

Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market – Segmentation

Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market is segmented in to two key dynamics for an easy grasp and enhanced understanding.
