Rochester, N.Y.-based Poseidon Systems LLC has announced a supply agreement with Gearbox Express (GBX), an independent remanufacturer of gearbox assemblies and mainshafts for wind turbines.
Per the agreement, Poseidon Systems will supply metallic wear debris monitoring equipment and services for all Gearbox Express remanufactured gearboxes. Specifically, Poseidon is providing its Trident DM4500 metallic wear debris monitors coupled with Trident AP2200 data collector/communication devices, as well as Poseidon Live for online data analysis and remote monitoring.
“Metallic wear debris monitoring offers our customers many benefits, including reduced cost of gearbox maintenance, reduced downtime and extended gearbox life,” comments Mark Redding, president of Poseidon Systems.
Founded in 2010, Poseidon develops and manufactures real-time condition monitoring solutions for reduced operations and maintenance costs and improved asset reliability.
Launched in 2012, GBX operates out of a newly constructed facility in Mukwonago, Wis. Through Poseidon’s online data portal, GBX will be able to quickly assess the health state of assets and deploy service teams to perform preventative maintenance.
