Summary

A gearbox manufacturer's contribution to increasing wind farm profitability lies in improving gearbox reliability through improved design and in developing a service offering aligned with the specific service needs of the turbine owners. Hansen draws upon a large fleet of wind turbine gearboxes installed over decades. This serves as a valuable base of experience and lessons learned to be incorporated into the design process. New technology and product development requires extensive experimental validation. Hansen has invested in cutting-edge test infrastructure consisting of system and component test rigs and advanced simulation techniques to increase wind farm reliability, provide a service offering based on the characteristics of the turbine and meet the customer's unique service requirements.
