Life span of Wind Turbines

According to manufacturers the life span of wind turbines amounts to 25 years.

Important influences on the life span are site specific (wind speed, storms, icing conditions) and the quality of the maintenance of the turbines (compare a car which is regularly taken care of to one which is not).
