The First International Forum on Wind Turbine Remanufacturing was held at Rematec 2019. The forum presented best practice from other sectors – including a presentation from APRA’s Joe Kripli on lessons from automotive reman - and offered thoughts on the benefits of reman. The oldest wind turbines have been in operation for more than 30 years as part of a total installed global wind capacity of over 550,000 MW. “Remanufacturing offers new business opportunities, for both new and replacement markets, in which Europe can lead the way,” the forum organiser said.
The International Forum on Wind Turbine Remanufacturing was co-located with Rematec 2019 and was organised by RAI Amsterdam, ECN part of TNO and Holland Home of Wind Energy.
