Moventas and DWPA share the same vision: to help the wind industry to

Teemu Hyytiäinen, Lorenzo Monaco and Danilo Scamonatti from Moventas formalized the cooperation relationship with Carsten L. Andersen and Soren Nygaard from the Danish Wind Power Academy at Moventas’ Italian training facility on 6th of September 2019.

This cooperation represents over 70 years of combined wind turbine and gearbox expertise. Moventas and DWPA will reinforce each other by providing unique training opportunities for our clients. The training sessions, lasting 3-5 days, include both theoretical, technical, and hands on portions, with instructors and guest speakers from selected sub-suppliers. The material and case examples are updated and customized to customer needs. Courses are available for all types of operators: Owners & Operators, 3rd party ISP, sub-suppliers and turbine OEMs.

“We started our gearbox training courses back in 2007 with the aim to extend lifetime on
this expensive and important main component through quality inspections
in a timely manner to be able to act in time with retrofits and repairs, that would
avoid the extensive unplanned breakdowns.
Besides the inspections we also train for correct understanding of damage development,
and the systems around the gearbox, such as pitch and converter systems.
Even though gearbox quality today is significantly higher than back then,
we still need to inspects our gearboxes and keep a professional and preventive
maintenance approach to get the best possible lifetime out of today´s extremely high loaded gearboxes. ”
Carsten L. Andersen, Managing Director & CEO of DWPA
