Refurbished

wind turbine

 

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.

REFURBISHED WIND TURBINE & REBUILT WIND TURBINE

Our goal is working with reconditioned turbines where we can provide a competitive solution. Those turbines sometimes are not older than 5 or 10 years and the technology is reliable and compliant with all legislation. As reconditioned we can provide full warranty and the cost usually drops to a half or less than new turbines. This advantage makes a cash flow turn to positive faster and healthier than using new turbines so we are now receiving many request for developing wind projects.

We can provide a turnkey solutions for a wind power farm of the size you mention. We can design, transport, build, erect, connect, commission and energize the plant. We can also finance provided client's last two years of audited accounts are satisfactory.

Additionally we can provide a GLGH power curve for the warranty. This second option requires an extra expenditure but we are offering this service as per client requests. Note that we can offer warranty on failure and breakdown same as Energy Yield Warranty.

We have a number of options for your wind project. However for funding purposes the we need to have as much proportion of Spanish products as possible, (it is a requirement for the loan). Here we are sure we can finance up to 85% provided that the company meets the requirements of the loan.

We conducted an overhaul of the nacelle, blades and towers, is a comprehensive review of all parts of the nacelle, replacing filters, oil seals, replacement of damaged machinery, painting in nacelle, tower, blades, fiberglass work glass blades.
