Rapid Response Wins The Day

22 January 2015
 
Fast response times and product availability by ZF Services UK were key when power giant E.ON chose to cary out proactive maintenance at it's Scroby Sands Offshore Windfarm. Regular remote monitoring found it prudent to change gearboxes in 3 of the 30 offshore wind turbines at Great Yarmouth. The OEM ZF was able to supply all 3 of the 14.5 tonne EH804 gearboxes on demand as like-for-like replacements. David Morgan, Business Manager for the Wind market for ZF Services UK, said: "Due to the different variants it can take up to 26 weeks to manufacture a gearbox. They are huge pieces of highly engineered equipment and don't just roll off the production line; this is why we keep close to our customers, discussing their needs and maintenance plans and help them plan ahead as much as possible." Nigel Roser of E.ON, Mechanical Engineer for the Scroby Sands Windfarm, said: "We also needed hydraulic pumps and shrink discs to connect the gear boxes onto the shafts, and a stand for one of the old gearboxes that was taken out- they supplied all these. It was a first class service."
