Vestas LifePlus™ Lifetime Extension Assessment Turbine lifetime extension assessment determines design life potential and informs asset management strategies Extending operational lifetime Optimising a turbine’s performance for the latter part of its operational lifetime includes the assessment of options ranging from lifetime extension or partial repowering to decommissioning. With a design lifetime of 20 years, each ageing wind turbine power plant is unique and requires individual assessment, from which an optimal operational strategy can be determined. Vestas can conduct Lifetime Assessment for non-Vestas turbines by applying similar methodology to that used on Vestas turbines. The exact methodology used will depend upon Original Equipment Manufacturer technology and turbine type. Vestas LifePlus™ lifetime extension assessment applies Vestas’ experience, technical expertise, and operational insights to determine the remaining design life of your turbines and support asset management decisions. The report is based on two main pillars: theoretical load analysis and physical inspections.
