Moventas, a wind and industrial gear manufacturer and service provider, notes it recently completed a full wind turbine drivetrain service project at Vindpark Vanern Kraft AB's offshore wind park in Sweden.

The 13-week-long project began in June and consisted of the refurbishment of four 3 MW drivetrains, two of which were replaced with a Moventas gearbox. The company executed full factory services with refurbishment of components in its facilities in Finland. All of the turbines were also equipped with the Moventas Condition Management System, completed with a remote diagnostics service.

Moventas says that the schedule was tight due to some challenging offshore conditions, including bad weather, but the project team prepared accordingly and proved successful.
