Repowering -
Fresh energy for your wind park

Repowering - More power for your location

Using state-of-the-art technology which is more productive and efficient, we replace old plants that can no longer be operated economically after 20 years. In this way, you can achieve higher yields and benefit from lower maintenance costs. We accompany the entire repowering process with a strong network in the areas of dismantling, recycling and reuse.

Potential analysis for your existing wind farm

  • Examination of yield data, maintenance costs, pending repairs and possible yields from direct marketing
  • Decision support when choosing between continued operation and repowering
  • Analysis of the yield potential
  • Examination of the current legal basis for the construction of modern plants at the same site (especially with regard to height limits and distance regulations)
  • Determination of the demand for the possible resale of the old plants

Dismantling of old plants

  • Preparation of the dismantling process including obtaining the necessary permits
  • Construction site safety for intermediate storage and dismantling on site
  • Improvement of the access route
  • Complete dismantling of old plants (including foundations and paths no longer required)
  • Removal and recycling or sale of plant components

  • Coordinated use of heavy construction equipment (particularly special cranes)
  • Maximising the useful life of old plants and rapid construction of new plants

Increase in yield and efficiency with new plants

  • Legally compliant planning and commissioning of all necessary expert opinions
  • Transparent communication with all parties involved
  • Manufacturer-independent plant selection for optimum yield
  • Implementation and monitoring of the approval procedure in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG)
  • Participation in EEG calls for tenders
  • Participation models for citizens and municipalities
  • Construction and commissioning of the new plants

Sale or cooperation

Would you like to sell your old wind turbines? VSB buys project and repowering rights as well as plants in all operating stages. Or we invest in your energy park in order to optimise it. Together, we replan it and share risks and opportunities equally. However, if you want to continue operating your energy park, we can support you with our services – just as you wish.

We are a founding member of the association RDRWind e. V., an industrial association for the repowering, dismantling and
recycling of wind turbines, and are committed to establishing standards and norms for the sustainable dismantling of wind
turbines for the first time.
