Spanish term or phrase: reemplazo de inversores
Buenas noches estimados colegas,

Continuo trabajando en el documento relacionado con la planta fotovoltáica. Esta vez estoy traduciendo la parte de las Consideraciones Financieras y me topé con el siguiente item:

- Reemplazo de Inversores cada 10 años que corresponde a su vida útil.

- Mantenimiento menor anual del 0.25% en obras civiles y 0.10% en Equipo, ya que es mínimo el mantenimiento en este tipo de proyecto.

Mi consulta aquí es por dos razones:

i. Me gustaría saber si en términos financieros existe un término/expresión establecida para "reemplazo de inversores".

ii. Hasta donde tengo entendido y por lo que he leído, la vida útil de la planta fotovoltáica oscila entre 25 - 30 años, entonces por contexto asumo que el "cada 10 años" correspondería al período de reemplazo de inversionistas.

No me suena bien dejarlo como "Replacement of investors every 10 years ...."

De antemano, agradezco sus sugerencias.

replacement of inverters
Explanation:
They're not talking about investors, Lydianette, they're talking about hardware, i.e., power inverters:

A power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_inverter

La función de un inversor es cambiar un voltaje de entrada de corriente continua a un voltaje simétrico de salida de corriente alterna, con la magnitud y frecuencia deseada por el usuario o el diseñador.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Right Robert. You're right. I hadn't seent he whole picture. My mistake was because the author uses the word 'inversor' for both 'investors' and 'inverters'. Anyway, you're right! Thanks for the clarification.

Asker: Hi Taña, actually the text is Ok. The problem as I previously told Robert is that the author uses sometimes "inversor" and other times "inversionista" for investor. But this time he/she meant "[current] inverter" which in Spanish is "inversor".

  -> Thanks, Pat.

agree  Taña Dalglish: Agree, but wonder where "inversionistas" came from? "ii. ... período de reemplazo de inversionistas". An error in original text?
