Factory Service

High quality factory repair, upgrade and overhaul services for gear units and accessories.

High quality factory and service center work for 20 different turbine brands’ gearboxes.

Decades of experience

Moventas factory repair, overhaul and upgrade service processes are tried and tested with over 70 years of experience and evolution behind them. From incoming inspection of the gearbox and its component parts, refurbishment or replacement of key components, through to load testing, final assembly and return to the customer. The same processes are also applied to accessories and other associated drive-train components.

Any gearbox received by Moventas will be fully assessed and options for repair, overhaul and/or upgrade to the latest state of the art are relayed to the customer. Upon the instruction of the customer we carry out the work requested. At all Moventas Factory sites and at selected service centres load testing of the repaired gear is carried out as standard practice.
