Industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation says it will provide key wind-power technologies to Guodian United Power Technology Co. Ltd., a wind turbine manufacturer in China. The agreement will generate about $1.5 million in revenues annually for the U.S. firm.
Eaton’s Hydraulics Group based in Shanghai will supply hydraulic power units equipped with Vickers and Integrated Hydraulics screw-in cartridge valves for yaw and shaft braking functions on Guodian wind turbines produced in Hebei Province. Eaton will also supply Aeroquip MatchMate Plus hose and Winner fittings for turbine brakes.
Eaton says it also offers customers power-unit-design capabilities, local production expertise, and technical and application engineering support.
