The process of replacing old turbines with less but more powerful ones is called repowering. Consequently, energy production is increased and yields may even be trebled even though the number of plants is reduced. Compared with older turbines, the new plants operate at reduced revolutions per minute which gives them a more harmonious look. We look forward to sharing this technological progress with you.
2020/21 wind farms with a total capacity of more than six gigawatts will no longer be covered by the German Renewable Energies Act. An operation of wind turbines outside of the Renewable Energies Act is often not economically viable. Is your project also effected? We can get your current wind farm in shape for the future – from a free of charge site analysis through to the development of a suitable repowering concept up till the dismantling and sale of old wind turbines and the realisation of new turbines.
The yield of wind farms has increased large-scale since the 1990s. In 1995, the annual yield of a 500-kilowatt turbine was at about one million kilowatt-hours. Today a five megawatt wind turbine with a rotor diameter of approximately 150 meters achieves the ten- to twelvefold.
Repowering offers many advantages for operators and landowners of windenergy plants, but also for citizens.
Advantages for operators and landowners:
