Gearboxes courses

Training courses covering mainstream gearboxes and Vestas V90-3.0 MW gearboxes

We conduct two different kinds of Gearbox Maintenance & Inspection courses. One of them is covering most traditional types of gearboxes from 500 KW to 2.0 MW with a one-step planetary and a two-step helical part. Furthermore, because of great demand we have developed a Vestas V90-3.0 MW (901 Hansen Transmission, now ZF Wind Power) gearbox course, which gives an understanding of the working conditions of the 901 gearbox. During both courses we conduct a complete, endoscopic inspection and work hands-on on a gearbox available in the classroom. During the 4 days of training you will also get input from external lectures from selected, important sub-suppliers. The courses are  held both as tailor-made on-site courses and open courses. The courses are continuously developed and are based on experience gained by our own instructors (all former technicians), but also on the important, operational feedback from our clients. 

Karl Nors, responsible instructor for the gearbox courses, says: 

With my off-shore background from the Vestas V90 3.0 MW turbines it became clear to me that we need a much more focused, preventive maintenance approach on gearboxes in our turbines in off-shore as well as on-shore conditions. Today I am very committed to these courses and I enjoy very much to develop them in constant cooperation with the gearbox manufacturers and the sub-suppliers, who prove bearings, cooling systems, filtering, CMS systems etc. I am both happy and proud to hear from our customers that in many cases I help them to extend the service life of their gearboxes by up to 20% and more, by teaching them to understand all the challenges on their gearboxes also impacting from the outside.
