Wind energy in China, repowering with larger wind turbines

Repowering refers to complete dismantling and replacement of old wind turbines at the original wind farm site. Wind farms older than 15 years are generally ideal candidates for repowering as the operation and maintenance (O&M) cost is 50% higher than that of wind farms younger than five years. The wind repowering market in China is … Continue reading Wind energy in China, repowering with larger wind turbines
