Market Research Reports | Q1 2024 | Report ID: BR01307

About the Report

The Offshore Wind Turbine Installation Vessels (WTIV) market is currently experiencing significant growth, driven by the global shift towards renewable energy sources and the increasing demand for offshore wind farms. As countries and regions strive to reduce their carbon footprint and meet renewable energy targets, offshore wind power has emerged as a crucial component of their sustainable energy strategies. This has led to a surge in offshore wind projects and, consequently, a rising need for specialized vessels capable of efficiently installing and maintaining wind turbines in challenging offshore environments.

 

However, the industry also faces challenges, including high initial investments, weather-dependent operations, and competition for vessel capacity. Despite these constraints, the future of the WTIV market looks promising as it continues to play a crucial role in the global transition towards a more sustainable energy landscape.

 

Driver 

Increasing Offshore Wind Capacity Additions

As countries around the world continue to grapple with the urgent need to address climate change, they are increasingly turning their attention to the potential of the offshore wind sector. Governments across the globe are setting ambitious climate goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, transition away from fossil fuels, and achieve carbon neutrality. These goals are often part of broader commitments outlined in international agreements such as the Paris Agreement. 

 

The offshore wind sector has captured the imagination of policymakers and energy planners due to its vast potential. Unlike onshore wind farms, which may face limitations in land availability and opposition from local communities, offshore wind farms are typically situated in waters where wind resources are abundant and consistent. This positioning offers several advantages, including stronger and more consistent winds, reduced visual impact, and the potential to build larger, more powerful turbines.

 

Post-COP26, there's been a surge in offshore wind ambition worldwide. Many governments are setting new targets or increasing existing ones in response to the energy crisis triggered by the Ukraine-Russia war, particularly in Europe. Offshore wind is seen as a key solution to enhance energy security and combat climate change. Advances in technology and public demand are driving this rapid expansion.

 

For instance, the European Commission's REPowEU plan aims to liberate Europe from Russian fossil fuels before 2030. The Esbjerg Declaration, embraced by Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany, sets an ambitious target of achieving 150 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2050. Additionally, the UK Government has raised its offshore wind target by 10 GW, targeting 50 GW by 2030. Even beyond Europe, countries like Vietnam are actively pursuing significant offshore wind expansions in their Power Development Plan 8 (PDP8).

 

In 2022, global offshore wind capacity witnessed a significant increase of 9.4 GW, primarily propelled by China's impressive growth of 6.8 GW. Although the new capacity added in 2022 was slightly lower than in 2021, mainly due to the expiration of the Chinese feed-in tariff, it still surpassed the capacity added in 2020.

 

Annual Offshore Wind Capacity Additions Globally

 

Notably, the average size of newly added offshore wind farms in 2022 was 225 MW, which was smaller compared to the average size of 296 MW recorded in 2021.

 

To foster the growth of the offshore wind sector, governments are implementing supportive policies, offering incentives, and streamlining regulatory processes. They are also investing in research and development to drive technological advancements and make offshore wind energy even more cost-effective and efficient.

 

For instance, In January 2022, a significant milestone was achieved in the Brazilian power generation industry with the approval and publication of Decree No. 10,946/2022 by the President of the Republic. This regulatory innovation establishes a framework for the exploration of offshore wind energy in Brazil. 

 

Current Scenario of the Global WTIV Market

According to Blackridge Research and Consulting, increasingly large turbine installations are expected to occur during the forecast period, and the offshore wind energy market is expected to experience a shortage of wind turbine installation vessels in the coming years.

 

Until recently, the need for larger wind turbines has been met by wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs), heavy lift vessels, and semi-submersibles designed for the oil and gas and port/salvage markets. However, with the average turbine capacity growing from three megawatts in 2010 to 6.5 megawatts now and offshore wind projects increasingly requiring 15-megawatt turbines, only a few vessels worldwide can presently install turbines over ten megawatts. Hence, there is an urgent need for more advanced new vessels.

 

Recent Development

  • In July 2023, Denmark-based Cadeler secured a firm contract with Baltic Power for the installation of 76 Vestas 15 MW offshore wind turbines in the Polish Baltic Sea. The contract is valued between EUR 68 and EUR 85 million.
  • In June 2023, the Jan De Nul Group entered into a significant agreement with RWE, a leading German energy provider. The deal entails the long-term chartering of two cutting-edge installation vessels, specifically designed to facilitate future offshore wind foundation and turbine construction projects.
  • Octopus Energy (a British renewable energy group) plans to invest USD 20 billion in offshore wind globally by 2030. Octopus is aiming projects all over the world, majorly in Europe, and already has several deals in the pipeline. It will support developers of new offshore wind farms along with wind farms that are under construction or operational.
