As part of Vestas’ service strategy to optimize the performance of wind energy assets, the company is expanding its partnership with gearbox provider ZF.
Through the partnership, Vestas becomes ZF’s preferred supplier to perform uptower repair work, and ZF becomes Vestas’ preferred supplier for shop repairs and replacement units.
ZF develops, manufactures and repairs gearboxes for the wind industry at plants and repair shops in Germany, Belgium, China, the U.S. and India. Going forward, Vestas and ZF will also collaborate on new repair and gearbox service products.
“With this new partnership, we are expanding our gearbox capabilities and are, at the same time, lowering the total cost of ownership – all to the benefit of our customers,” says Christian Venderby, Vestas’ group senior vice president of service.
