Expert talk: Dr.-Ing. Tobias Meyer on "Reliability control"

Wind turbine life-time is limited by fatigue loads. Usually, turbines are designed for a minimum service life of 20 years. In most cases, some usable service life remains after the end of the planned time of operation, which can sometimes be exploited by extending the service life period. However, structural integrity must be assessed for each individual turbine to show that it can continue to operate safely.
