Wind Turbine Remanufacturing: Untapped Potential
With a total installed wind capacity of over 550,000 MW in the world, and rapidly expanding market, the repowering market is also booming. But what happens to existing pre-owned turbines? The oldest wind turbines have been in operation for more than 30 years; remanufacturing offers new business opportunities, for both new and replacement markets, in which Europe can lead the way. This makes remanufacturing of wind turbines the ultimate green solution.
