Germany


More than 21.000 wind energy converters (WEC) have been installed in Germany since 1990. Those were created by the manufacturer for a 20 year life span and therefore received an operating licence for the specific location (soil conditions) for 20 years from the construction supervisory board. Afterwards, the plants have to be de-installed, unless a remaining life of the turbine without increased security risks can be proved.
