Offshore Wind Turbine End of Life Scenarios: Service Life Extension and Decommissioning provides all the information required to make considered decisions about what will happen when wind turbines reach the end of their nominated life span. The book outlines a holistic approach to wind turbine asset assessment as a foundation for end of service life planning. The first two chapters introduce the topic of wind turbine end of life scenarios and review relevant legislation and standards, as well as outlining decision criteria and methods for techno economic assessment. After a chapter on supply chain issues, the authors then go on to cover the scenario of service life extension, from design and inspection to certification. This is followed by a chapter on decommissioning, once again from design of the process to recycling. The requirements of certifying authorities and insurers are then discussed, leading to a chapter on environmental impact assessment, which considers pre and post mortem inspection and environmental life cycle assessment. Readers are then presented with a series of case studies to illustrate the principles discussed in the preceding chapters. A summary and conclusions complete the book. This book is a unique and essential resource for all those who are required to assess wind turbine assets and make decisions on wind turbine end of life scenarios. First book to address this crucial topic, meeting the need for a consolidated source of information in this area Includes case studies to illustrate the methods proposed Gives practical advice on technical considerations for wind turbine service life extension and decommissioning, as well as covering the requirements of external stakeholders, such as certification authorities, insurers and environmental agencies
