The lifetime of some offshore windfarms could be greater than the 25 years commonly assigned to them, which could make them even more attractive to investors, particularly as projects get under way in southeast Asia.

Given adequate design margins and sufficient TLC during the operation and maintenance phase, offshore windfarms could continue producing power for longer in future.

Already accepted as a viable, secure asset class, they could become an even more attractive asset for institutional investors if they produce more energy over longer periods, boosting revenues and profits.
