Is your wind farm reaching the end of its operating cycle and needing to be renewed in line with the latest technological advances available on the market? What are the alternatives to simply extending its lifespan? How can you maximise your return on investment and increase the value of your current and future assets?
Repowering a wind farm, which consists of replacing old machines with more efficient wind turbines, is one of the solutions for optimising the productivity and earning potential of a site.
Repowering offers numerous advantages:
The wind turbines currently on the market are demonstrating considerable technological developments
Replacing old wind turbines with new ones makes it possible to produce more energy, with a lower overall impact on the environment, for an area that already benefits from good local acceptance of the wind farm
Thanks to technological progress, maintenance costs can be reduced
Having sufficient technical knowledge about the site facilitates the repowering design: it is possible to make use of data that is already available and to take advantage of existing infrastructures (e.g. access, connections)
