Up-tower repairs can significantly reduce costs and extend the life of wind turbine gearboxes
Moventas’ trained engineers and fitters are available to travel where ever and whenever to provide on site inspections, repairs and replacements of key components. We are using only Moventas manufactured original components or components approved by the wind turbine OEM. We’ll climb up when you need us!
Our service teams are at your service for full helical repairs, high speed pinion & bearing repairs, intermediate and low speed assemblies, as well as planetary sun pinion repairs on multi-brand gears. The 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.
Mobile service units in North America
Moventas mobile service units (MSU) are field workshops with the same tooling than we have in our factory service facilities. This enables us to make factory service level repairs in the field environment. MSU trucks are fully equipped to meet any challenge.

- Lower cost to traditional workshop service
- No external crane requirement
- Early intervention to damages will prevent further damages and unplanned shutdowns
- Quick response
- Reduced downtime due to fast schedule
