Gearbox manufacturer Winergy has invested in a 2.8-MW load test bench in its Service Center in Rockhampton, Australia. This investment means that the facility now has Australia’s largest and most advanced test rig for wind-power gearboxes.
From now on every gearbox that is serviced and refurbished in Rockhampton is subject to the Winergy test routine. With load tests the gearbox manufacturer completes its full original service and repair capability for Winergy products in Australia.
“Quality is the priority for every product we supply. This test bench helps us to secure the reliability of our gearboxes. The result are minimized lifecycle costs for our customers,” said Winergy VP Service Detlef Eißing.
The gearbox test rig will provide a much needed service capability for Winergy customers in the region and beyond.
Opened in 2013, the 1,500 square meters Service Center in Rockhampton is the hub for Winergy’s service activities in the region of Australia. Winergy Original Service portfolio covers maintenance repairs either in the field or in the workshop, as well as spare parts and gearboxes.
The new investment by Winergy has been made as Queensland’s Government committed to increasing the uptake of renewable energy to drive jobs and investment and reduce emissions.
