Wind plants abroad: estimated hours worked, given the technical impossibility of recording the presence of O&M contractors with global service agreements, is based on the assumption that one FTE can service 15 MW, multiplied by workable days (260) and by 8 hours.
Plants under construction in the UK: hours recorded according to site report.
