Moventas announces the launch of their new, custom-built Mobile Service Units for wind gears. Designed to support Moventas’ up-tower field service program, the self-contained, climate-controlled mobile workshops are outfitted with a retractable roof, a power generator, plumbed air lines, a parts wash basin, and an induction heater. The units are stocked with proprietary up-tower tools and equipped with cutting and welding capabilities, making it possible to offer a wider range of onsite services than ever before.
Moventas’ unique ability to repair the entire helical side of the gearbox up-tower greatly reduces maintenance costs by utilizing small cranes in place of large capacity boom and tail cranes. Repair times are collapsed by eliminating the need to ship gears to and from service centers, while weather delays are mitigated as fewer lifts are required. Up-tower services include full helical repair, high-speed pinion and bearing repair, intermediate and low-speed assembly, as well as planetary sun pinion repair.
