Most wind turbines are designed and certified for a 20–25 year service life. After this period, they have to be decommissioned or the accredited operational lifetime has to be extended, often accompanied by repowering.
While processes for decommissioning/repowering onshore wind parks are well known, the experience with offshore ones is limited. This project shall close this gap by devising and developing ecoinnovative concepts.
