Remanufacturing old gearboxes

As a wind turbine gearbox reaches the end of its life, operators have a decision to make: dispose of it in a scrap yard or have it remanufactured. SKF provides wind farm operators the opportunity to have their deteriorated gearboxes repaired, or even upgraded – maximizing availability and reducing lifecycle costs.

SKF provides gearbox remanufacturing services for any type or brand of gearbox and in a variety of industries. In addition to the wind energy industry, these include shipping, heavy industry, mining, and more. The complete range of services – from gearbox inspection and root cause failure analysis to refurbishment and testing – enables customers to get their machinery up and running again in less time.
