Life-cycle management services for your wind turbines

We will support you in finding the most appropriate lifetime extension (LTE) approach for your wind turbine’s electrical drivetrain based on its condition.

Modernization and Performance Improvement services

Refurbishments

Refurbishment is an effective way of restoring wind generators and converters to as-new condition

Lifetime can be extended by up to 15 years with a three-year warranty on the refurbished generator

Refurbishment can significantly cut downtime if a new generator or converter has to be ordered

Performance upgrades

Performance upgrades boost the overall performance of the turbine and enable continuous power production

They enable greater turbine power production, while reducing waste

Use of latest technology improves reliability and safety

Replacements

ABB replacement generators and converters are built to customer specifications and are fully interchangeable with legacy units

ABB can provide replacement for generators from other manufacturers provided that we have a track record in supplying the particular turbine type
