On the North American continent, the repowering of older wind parks in California with modern technology will be a market for sale of wind turbines in the years to come.
In 1997, NEG Micon, a Danish windmill company, embarked on 2 such repowering projects in California. 750 old turbines will be replaced with some 100 modem 750-kW NEG Micon wind turbine generators within the next two years. NEG Micon, together with some partner companies, has bought a number of Californian wind parks with a view to refurbishment and/or repowering.
