Moventas Group has acquired its Clyde Blowers owned sister company David Brown Gears System’s wind gear business along with David Brown’s UK-based production unit with test facilities, as well as a service workshop.
The now acquired business will be called DB Wind UK, a Moventas Group company, and continue to operate from Huddersfield, UK. The new company continues David Brown’s on-going, 7MW offshore turbine drivetrain development with Samsung Heavy Industries, announced in the beginning of 2012. The new company will be manufacturing the 7 MW gearboxes, with engineering and component supply from both UK and Finland. David Brown’s wind industry staff of some 20 people will be working in close cooperation with their colleagues in Finland and globally.
