Milford, Ohio-based International TechneGroup Inc. (ITI) and Leuven, Belgium-based Leuven Measurement and Systems (LMS) have formed the Wind Energy Alliance, an ITI/LMS collaboration that will deliver engineering services and new product development consulting to manufacturers serving the North American wind energy industry.

The alliance will provide engineering services to help reduce unscheduled downtime and equipment failure. Consulting services will also be available to manufacturers who want to leverage best practices in developing new products.

"Specifically, the partnership will help eliminate problems commonly associated with rotating power generation equipment including noise, vibration, fatigue, failure and overall system reliability," says ITI Vice President David Byrd. "Furthermore, manufacturers will now be able to employ new product development best-practices, such as simulation-led development, customer usage profiling, linked intelligent master modeling and more."
