Posted by Betsy Lillian on June 22, 2016 No Comments

Moventas has launched a kilowatt-class suite of life-extending services for wind turbine gearboxes: the Extra Life for kW, available in Moventas workshops globally.

According to Moventas, kilowatt-class gearbox fleets represent 12% of all gearbox fleets around the world and 15% in Europe.

Moventas is now offering a suite of services for Vestas V42, V44 and V47 fleets, as well as Gamesa G42, G44 and G47 fleets.

The company’s Extra Life and OEM-level repairs also include Hansen, Winergy and Bosch Rexroth gearboxes, in addition to those from Moventas, Metso and Valmet.

In addition to upgrades, Extra Life for kW is available for multi-brand replacements, factory service, plug and play accessories, up-tower services, spares, and inspections. Moventas also provides a new and improved replacement gearbox for the Vestas and Gamesa fleets in question, including with integrated planet bearings.

The kilowatt-class offering also includes a batch of several used Moventas and Hansen units that Moventas has acquired from the market to refurbish and sell for these fleets. These gearboxes are being repaired in workshops in Finland and the U.K. this summer and will be available to deliver from stock as direct deliveries or via an exchange pool, says Moventas.
