Wind Farm Decommissioning

Wind Farm Decommissioning and Scrap Management:  We Do It All

At Belson Steel, we handle all elements of decommissioning and recycling wind turbines on large wind farms. Recycling the wind turbines on a wind farm–which can have dozens or hundreds of wind turbines–is a big project. Fortunately, our company has been around for more than 50 years and has the skillset and experience that you can count on. You can always trust us to get a job done right.

When you call us, we start with a site assessment. During this phase, we’ll determine the best strategy for removing and decommissioning the wind turbines. From there, we bring in a team to disassemble the wind turbines, load them into large trucks, and transport them to a facility where the scrap can be recycled. We pay top dollar for your scrap!

To offer you peace of mind, we also provide cradle-to-grave documentation, which includes a destruction certificate and re-melting certification as well.

While we do our best to recycle as many parts of a wind turbine as possible, it is important to note that some materials are non-recyclable. We handle the transport of these materials to a landfill or treatment center.
