Gearbox oil exchange services
To optimise your wind turbine’s performance, the gearbox must be regularly maintained with the exchange of the gearbox oil playing a critical role in ensuring continued efficient energy generation.
To exchange the gearbox oil, the old oil is drained from the turbine and replaced with new oil of the proper grade and viscosity. The oil should then be checked periodically to ensure proper lubrication and heat levels which is a service Swire Renewable Energy can also provide.
Other related services include:
- Exchange of gear oil hoses, pumps, coolers, and valves
- The analysis of the oil samples taken before and after the oil exchange to document the quality of the lubricant and the completeness and success of the oil exchange performed.
