Repowering from 300kW to 2.300kW

Although The Wind Factory’s main focus is on wind turbines smaller than 1MW, incidentally we achieve repowering existing wind turbines into multi-MW turbines. After almost 12 productive years a BONUS300 turbine on a 40m tower has been dismantled to make space for a new Enercon E70 2.3MW turbine on a 65m tower. From start of the planning process for repowering, until commencement of installation has been taken not more than 4 years. This is for Dutch circumstances acceptable as 15 years lead times are not an exception any more, making upgrading of a wind turbine very difficult these days.
