Information on Purchasing Refurbished or Remanufactured Turbines

  • Renew Wisconsin Information from WindLetter
  • From Windustry:
    Remanufactured turbine buyers should beware of used, refurbished, or remanufactured machines. Even though these machines may initially be less expensive than comparable new machines, the initial savings can be negated very quickly by costly repairs from a machine that is nearing the end of its lifetime. Before purchasing a used machine read through this article by Mick Sagrillo from the November 2002 American Wind Energy Association newsletter about buying used wind equipment.
