Repowering

The process of replacing old turbines with modern wind turbines is called repowering.

The yield of wind farms has increased large-scale since the 1990s. In 1995, the annual yield of a 500-kilowatt turbine lay at about one million kilowatt-hours.Today a two Megawatt wind turbine with a double rotor diameter of approximately 80 meters achieves the fourfold to sixfold.

 

One of our showcase repowering projects is juwi's wind farm Schneebergerhof in Germany. An Enercon E-126 now generates up to 20 million kilowatt-hours. With a rotor diameter of 126 meters, it is bigger than the distance between two goals on a soccer field.

Repowering has become very interesting for investors in Germany. With the amendment of the Renewable Energy Law (EEG) on January 1st 2009, operators of older wind farms can profit not only from the higher yield of new wind turbines, but also from the so-called repowering bonus (at the rate of 0.5 ct. / kWh) which the legislator has created in the EEG as an additional incentive.

 

Repowering also offers you an attractive financial alternative to further operating older turbines. Our repowering expert Ingo Sebastiani can design an individual concept for you.
