Moventas ramp up Texas operations as part of North American Service strategy
Moventas, the leader in wind gearbox technology and service solutions, are in the process of expanding their US Big Spring operations as part of a strategic investment aimed at further strengthening their service offering to the North American market.
The facility (please see map below) in Big Spring, located in Howard County (Texas), will consist of a 7,500 sq ft workshop and a further 35,000 sq ft area combining warehouse space and a state-of-the-art test bench installation. The facility will be capable of repairing and load testing main gearboxes up to a size of 3MW.
All US workshop repairs are being consolidated to the new facility in Big Spring, with Canadian workshop repairs continuing in the Cambridge, Ontario facility. The consolidated structure allows Moventas to serve the North American marketplace more efficiently with workshop repairs and gives Moventas a strong presence in the state with the single biggest installed base in the United States. This will provide Moventas a platform for growth over the coming years for workshop repairs and also field services.
“The consolidation of US workshop repair activities is at the core of Moventas’ revised strategy for North America. Focus of this strategy is to provide our customers with a comprehensive and cutting-edge offering to help them win in a highly competitive market.”
