65GW of European onshore wind turbines need upgrades or replacements by 2028

By [email protected] Some 65 gigawatts of European onshore wind turbines will reach end-of-design-life by 2028. From 2019 to 2028, an average of 4 gigawatts of turbines per year that are reaching end-of-design-life will be lifetime extension (LTE) suitable, according to new research from Wood Mackenzie.

While upgrading components to extend the life of a turbine — the LTE option — is much cheaper than alternative options available, not all asset owners will choose to implement a LTE solution.

The decision to extend the operational lifetime of turbine assets depends on asset owner strategies, project economics and site and turbine operating conditions.
