Moventas adds WinWind service work

Wind gearbox specialist Moventas has signed agreements to carry out service work for operators of 3MW WWD3 turbines built by the Finnish manufacturer WinWind.

Moventas’ customers, which include Finland’s Haminan Energia and Estonia’s Nelja Energia, will be provided with a full service package including spare parts, installation and in some cases crane works.

The work is scheduled for this spring and summer.

Moventas said problems with the turbines were detected by its CMaS condition monitoring system, which will be used to flag up future problems in advance.

Last year Moventas was called in to carry out urgent service work on WinWind turbines at Sweden’s 30MW lake Vänern project.

WinWind entered voluntary bankruptcy in October 2013 after several years of heavy losses.
