Reality check on lifecycle of offshore wind turbines needed

As demonstrated across early offshore wind projects realistic lifespans beyond 35 years are achievable using current asset management methodologies and O&M activity.

Official Press Release K2 Management:

It is time turbine design lifetime limits had a reality check

Wind Industry Profile of
It is time turbine design lifetime limits had a reality check

Conservative turbine design lifetime limits are a costly distraction from the potential of offshore projects to continue to help meet decarbonisation targets

Limitations on wind turbine design lifetimes are hampering efforts to manage costs in asset lifecycles, reducing the effectiveness of long-term decision making and disrupting the effectiveness of offshore wind energy in low carbon power generation. New WindEurope figures indicate that in the next five years, 38GW of European wind farms will reach 20 years of operations, and therefore require decisions to be made around repowering, life extension or full decommissioning. Owners of... ... More: Official Press Release K2 Management
