Caterpillar Inc. and Vestas Wind Systems say they have reached a 10-year agreement for Caterpillar to remanufacture Vestas wind turbine components.
Under the agreement, Caterpillar will supply Vestas with remanufacturing services. The relationship with Caterpillar will be managed by Vestas' Spare Parts & Repair Business Unit and will cover the remanufacture of minor components and sub-component repair in support of Vestas' internal repair sites, the companies explain.
Caterpillar's Cat Reman division will remanufacture Vestas wind turbine components using its existing facilities, equipment and suppliers. Remanufacturing will begin in Caterpillar's North American facilities, followed by facilities in Europe and Asia.
