ENERGY INDUSTRY EQUIPMENT SOLUTIONS
With the power industry adapting to new ways to generate power, maintaining wind turbine gears and gearboxes have become an essential part of keeping a power plant online and profitable. As more initiatives rise to stabilize carbon emissions and as the industry begins to turn away from fossil fuels, gearboxes for the power and energy industry will be in high demand.
Three primary drivers are behind the increased growth of the energy industry:
- Declining cost of the generation of wind power
- Growing support from governments for renewable energy sources
- Depleting fossil fuel reserves
Wind power generation is a strong driver of the growth of the power and energy industry. The primary component in wind energy generation is the gearbox in the wind turbine that is used to increase the rotational speed from a low-speed rotor to the high speeds needed for electricity generation.
Increased installation rates for wind and hydro turbines will mean that power industry gearboxes will be in high demand. Alongside with that is the need to make sure that any power generation operation has the right Falk replacement and surplus parts for wind turbine gears and gearboxes.
