If you just dismantle or remove your old wind turbines, it is not just your key contribution to the energy transformation that is lost but also the income you have been earning. On the other hand, if you modernise those aging wind farms, you can expect even greater gains than before. It is not uncommon to halve the number of turbines, double their output through more efficient use of the land and triple the energy yield.
When the 20 years of EEG (Renewable Energy Act) support for old wind farms runs out, repowering of existing wind farms greatly extends their useful life. What’s more, replacing 1st-generation wind turbines with the latest models will significantly increase their efficiency.
You can rely on the experience, competence and financial strength of RWE as your partner for future-proof repowering projects.
