Moventas has announced new patent-pending up-tower repair capabilities for North American wind farms featuring GE turbines.
All failed ‘low-speed’ planetary stage gears and bearings in most GE 1.5MW wind turbines can be repaired up-tower. In each repair, customers can opt for longer life components by upgrading the boxes up-tower from thru hardened ring wheels and old bearing design to case carburised ring wheels and integrated planet wheel bearings. With this new repair capability, Moventas expands its up-tower repair capability and simultaneously adds workshop repair capability in its new mid-western regional repair facility in St. Paul Minnesota.
