Revamping and Repowering Solar Plants for a Better Performance

Replacing and updating old hardware is a cost-effective way to restore solar power projects to their peak performance. Boost production, cut maintenance costs and extend your facility’s lifespan. BayWa r.e. guarantees a quality service and full commitment throughout your entire revamping or repowering project, relying on the skills and experience of our engineering team. 

Renew your plants, not your permits

When you undertake the Revamping or Repowering of a solar plant, you don’t need to renew all your permits which simplifies the process and speeds up the delivery. 

You benefit from the engineering, procurement, and construction processes being focused solely on the efficient replacement of defective or underperforming components. 

With newer high performing technologies replacing the old technology, ground surface can be reduced for the same installed capacity. Alternatively, it will free up more space to install further capacity or add new technologies such as energy storage.

New German laws are great news for solar park owners

German energy security act EnSig-Novelle 3.0 creates a compelling business case for Revamping and Repowering. Putting German projects on a level footing with other major EU countries is creating huge opportunities for investors and developers.

Revamping vs Repowering

Revamping returns an ageing solar plant to its original capacity. Repowering goes one better and improves the original asset’s capacity. German law makes Revamping easier, but Repowering is still an attractive choice for many projects.

Let BayWa r.e. experts guide you to the best tailor-made solution for your needs.
