Last year, authorities in wind OEM Vestas' home country of Denmark updated their estimation of a wind turbine lifespan. From a previous idea that turbines could supply power for around 25 years, the Danish Energy Agency brought a forecast based on real conditions that the average turbine could live for 35 years.
This assumption seems to be shared by Finnish project developer Taaleri Energia. Besides awarding the wind turbine manufacturer an order for 252 MW going to two wind farms, the company has also added a 35-year service agreement.
