Availon says it is a certified authorized service provider for Winergy Drive Systems Corp., a provider of wind turbine drivetrain components, including gearboxes, couplings and generators.

To gain certification, Availon says its engineers and technicians received hands-on training at Winergy's Elgin, Ill.-based plant, where Availon employees were schooled in up-tower gearbox repair on GE's 1.5 MW wind turbines.

As a result, Availon says it is certified in borescope services for identifiying gear and bearing damage inside the gearbox; high-speed bearing replacement; high-speed shaft replacement; intermediate-speed bearing replacement (generator side only); intermediate-speed shaft replacement; low-speed bearing replacement (generator side only); and pitch tube replacement and/or repair.

All works performed by factory-trained Availon technicians is covered under Winergy's standard one-year warranty. In addition to the certified services, Availon is stocking Winergy-manufactured parts needed for repair and replacement of gearbox components at Availon’s Des Moines, Iowa, and Sweetwater, Texas, distribution centers.
