UK’s Ageing Wind Farms – Time to Wind Down? End of Life Options
This article was produced by Haynes & Boone, a member of IPFA.
By 2030 half of all UK wind farms will be over 20 years old. Not only will the wind turbines have reached the end of their design life after 20 years, but the projects’ leases, planning permission and other contracts will have been structured around this 20-year period. The owners of aging wind farms have a range of end-of-life options. The default position will be to dismantle the installation, remediate the site and to restore it to its former use.
