The Industry

But...

  • There is a shortage of key components due to a fast paced growth

And

  • The manufacturers strive for profit maximization by:
    • Increasing the EBIT-margin
    • Lowering the capital employed
    • not focusing primarily on market share
icing is a major problem
Icing is a Major Problem
  • Reduces or stops energy production
  • Causes a safety threat due to ice throw
    • stops the operation due to legal requirements
  • Increases the fatigue induced loads

 Increases the risks: personal, business wise

 Reduces the profitability

icing is a major problem14
Icing is a Major Problem
  • 80% of projects in the portfolio are located in areas affected by icing
  • There is currently no efficient anti/de-icing solution commercially available
slide15
Manufactures are ready to provide anti-icing when the standard market is saturated.

This is not likely to happen within 2-3 decades.
