Repowering the Wind turbines is 200% profitable Obtaining new capacity from old turbines Dismantling, new construction or continued operation without the support by the Ministry of Renewable Energy Sources Act (MNRE)? Many operators will have to ask themselves these questions over the next few years, as many wind farms are no longer eligible for support under the MNRE.
One possibility is repowering, where old turbines are replaced by new, more powerful wind turbines. Due to the advanced technologies, modern wind turbines can generate significantly more electricity, so that a smaller number of turbines is required and the volume of power generated can still be multiplied.
Re-Powering consider the factors
Independent engineering analysis of existing wind turbine foundations, towers, and balance-of-plant electrical systems
Inspections and observations of installed wind turbine foundations, towers, and electrical facilities
Assessment of the impact of repowering wind turbines on plant performance, O&M expenses, contractual obligations, and permits
Provide independent engineering reports and advice to support investments in the repowered projects
