Opportunity Assessment for Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul in the Global Wind Energy Market: Trends, Forecasts & Economic Analysis 2008-2013

22 Dec 2010 • by Natalie Aster

Texas, USA – Lucintel believes that an enormous opportunity is available for suppliers of maintenance, repair and overhaul services through planned and unplanned maintenance, annual outages, long-term service agreements (LTSAs), long term maintenance contracts, corrective repair, and complete periodic overhaul of various plant and equipment (i.e., replacement parts business). Currently, maintenance, repair and overhaul costs contribute to 20% - 25% of expenditures in the wind turbine market. Thus MRO spending trends are increasingly attracting the attention of service providers.

From a global perspective, wind power is undergoing rapid development. Within the past 10 years, the global installed capacity increased from 7 GW to around 100 GW at the end of 2007. With the aging of wind farms, the opportunity for after-market service providers is bound to grow. The research “Opportunity Assessment for Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul in the Global Wind Energy Market: Trends, Forecasts & Economic Analysis 2008-2013” by Lucintel provides an understanding of the maintenance, repair and overhaul requirements and strategies of wind farms globally, as well as the key strategic opportunities and players within this sector.
