The Rexroth service increases the efficiency and availability of wind turbines

Increasing competition is creating further price pressure in the wind industry. Wind farm operators are targeting secure energy revenues for the entire lifecycle of the wind turbine, increasing the significance of not only service, but also maintenance and repair. With a service concept tailored to their respective requirements, manufacturers and operators can increase the efficiency and availability of their wind turbines, reducing operating costs in turn.

The service and maintenance concepts can only increase the availability of wind turbines to the maximum extent if the selected levers and measures are coordinated and perfectly tailored to each other. Wind farm operators at Bosch Rexroth therefore receive a completely customized maintenance offering – from simple visual inspection as part of the six-monthly regular maintenance through to comprehensive maintenance packages, for example as part of a warranty extension. Flexible maintenance provision helps to ensure the reliable operation of the wind turbine even in its later years, thereby reducing operating costs.

To keep repairs and downtimes to a minimum, speed is of the essence when unforeseeable faults occur. In addition to fault analyses and testing technologies, wind farm operators at Bosch Rexroth have rapid access to an extensive exchange gearbox pool with original spare parts. On-site inspections such as endoscopy, oil analysis, structural acoustic measurements, and gearbox alignment help to avoid damages. Manufacturers and operators can reach a contact person from Bosch Rexroth 24 hours a day on our service line +49 (0)2302 877-799.

To ensure that existing wind turbines function as efficiently as possible, operators have access to various optimization options from Rexroth. These include overhauls based on the original documentation, automatic upgrades, reworking of gearbox components, bearing replacement, gear-tooth regrinding, and condition monitoring solutions.
