Final Conference DecomTools
Most wind turbines are designed and certified for a service life of 20 to 25 years. After this period they must be decommissioned or have their accredited service life extended, often accompanied by repowering . While procedures for decommissioning and repowering of onshore wind farms are known, experience with offshore wind farms is limited. There is no overall sustainable end-of-life approach to offshore wind farms. The international project ” DecomTools ” closes this gap by developing eco-innovative concepts.
During the final conference, participants will receive various impulses and a detailed overview of the results of the project based on specialist lectures and panel discussions. Innovative technologies and demonstration pilots from the fields of logistics, ship design and up- and recycling will be considered. Which are supplemented by technical concepts for process optimization for the dismantling of individual offshore wind turbines and by economic and political analyzes of the offshore decommissioning market. In addition, there are sufficient opportunities for networking with various stakeholders from the industry.Join us for the final conference in the DecomTools project and get the newest insights about decommissioning, repowering and future perspectives.
