Broadwind Energy says the Development Corporation of Abilene awarded its Broadwind Services subsidiary, Energy Maintenance Service, a financial assistance package of about $902,000 which will be applied to facility improvements and support equipment at the company’s drivetrain service center in Abilene, Texas. A portion of the assistance package will create jobs at the drivetrain-service center. The center will provide a comprehensive suite of multi-megawatt gearbox remanufacturing services, including failure analysis, engineering, disassembly, gear regrinding, clean assembly, and testing functions.
