Company Profile: Mortenson Construction
One of the leading wind-farm construction companies in North America, this company supports the industry in numerous ways.
An Alternative Design for Speed Increasers
Unlike traditional gear design, which is based on the rack generating process and driven by manufacturing convenience, Direct Gear Design is driven entirely by application requirements.
A Strategic Approach to Successful O&M
To maximize efficiency the need for a component repair or replacement strategy, an asset management strategy, and an inventory management system should be addressed.
Maximizing Grid-Connect Time
Automating a wind farm grid-intertie substation costs relatively little, but increases efficiency and dependability for an improved return on your investment.
A New Phase in Turbine Condition Monitoring
If gearbox issues and turbine loading have got you down, M4’s Rotor Redline system can help keep you up and running, boosting your bottom line.
Optimizing Existing Wind Towers
As a relatively young industry, wind can benefit from the knowledge gained in older, more-established markets such as telecommunications, especially in the area of tower optimization.
Conquering Turbine Shaft Alignment
The truer the shaft alignment, the lower the maintenance costs and longer the turbine life, but how can it be achieved? LUDECAwind has the answers.
The Future of Wind Turbine Diagnostics
As wind turbines increase in size, and their operating conditions become more extreme, a number of current and future tribological challenges exist.
Compaction grouting is the only soil improvement technique that can be used both pre-construction and beneath an in-place foundation.
How your turbine is handled prior to going online can take a definite toll on its service life, and inspections can reveal damage before the warranty period draws to a close.
As the wind-energy market continues to grow and evolve, balancing the economic benefits of innovation while preserving reliability will be the central guiding concern.
Demand for transportatihttp://windsystemsmag.com/admin/article/edit.php?articleID=93on and equipment could soon outpace supply, so choose an experienced logistics solutions partner to help ensure you’re not left hanging in the wind.
