Moventas will team up with industrial gearbox service provider Zanini Renk to service Brazil's growing wind operations and maintenance (O&M) services market.
According to Moventas, with Zanini Renk's expertise in special gearboxes and its modern industry facilities, the Zanini Moventas joint concept will serve the local wind industry. Zanini Renk's main factory is located in Cravinhos, Sao Paulo, and it runs a service hub in Brazil's northeasternÂ region – close to the major wind corridors. The company will become an authorized Moventas service partner.
Moventas notes that the deal makes sense, given that the first supplier contracts are coming to an end in Brazil. Therefore, the O&M market in Brazil is expected to grow significantly in the next five years.
Owned by the Brazilian Biagi Group, Zanini Renk is an industrial gearbox designer and manufacturer, that operates in several business segments, such as energy, mining, pulp and paper, sugar and ethanol.
