Refurbished wind turbine

 
Today, a large number of wind turbines need to be retrofitted with a solution that is optimized to the needs of the grid.
REPOWERING SOLUTIONS´s, provides wind turbine dramatically improved, simple installation and reliable operation.

Our initial market focus is on redeploying wind turbines in community wind projects throughout the Europe. Given the nascent nature of the refurbished wind markets we often develop our own projects, but prefer to work with other developers seeking a reliable solution to their community wind and/or net-meter project needs.

With a lead-time of less than three-months, we hope developers will find refurbished wind turbines an economical, timely, and wise solution to the current supply issues plaguing the community wind market.

Retrofit Wind turbine

Repowering Solutions is a division of Jeraneas Group of companies.  Our core business is the remanufacturing of wind turbines of different sizes; a work that we have been doing with good success for the past years.  We have several references in Europe and Latin America.  As an example, we have been the first installation approved by Enel in Italy, using remanufactured turbines (a Nordtank 300 derated to 200kw).  Our final product has the same lifespan than a new turbine, comes with 2-5 years of guarantee but also enjoys a much lower investment need.

 

We currently have different solutions for different projects specially in the range where you work: 60 to 2000kw.  As a matter of fact, we sold 10 units of remanufactured wind turbine last year for the Italian, Spain, Nicaragua and UK market

 

We can adapt our scope to the different projects, from being a simple supplier of turbines, to a full EPC contractor.  This flexibility will be very positive when collaborating with your company, since we can create good synergies.
