As part of its long-term growth strategy, World Wind and Solar (WWS), a company providing repair and maintenance services for utility-scale renewable wind, solar and energy storage system (ESS) assets, has announced the addition of critical new services for customers that own or operate wind farms.
WWS has created a new Specialised Services division within its Wind business to address the needs of wind system owners and operators facing numerous challenges in optimising turbines to operate at their maximum potential.
“World Wind and Solar has built our reputation on quality, safety, and our ability to provide cost effective solutions” said VP of Sales Daryl Ragsdale, speaking about the new range of services. “We are now adding a whole new dimension to our ability to support our customers with these advanced capabilities.”
WWS has already begun performing these specialised scopes of work for customers which include:
Large Corrective Repairs (including Generator Replacement, Gearbox Exchange, Bearings, and Blade Exchange)
Blade Repair and Composite Services
Engineered Solutions (including DFIG Conversions, Re-Powering, and Field Engineering Support)
Turbine Spare Parts (including Replacement and Retrofit)
Full supply chain and inventory management capabilities through warehouse based in Midwest
Safety Program Development and Implementation
To deliver and build on this new capability, WWS has brought on a large team of dedicated technical experts, field engineers, large corrective specialist technicians, and supply chain professionals with decades of experience. In addition to the new staff, WWS is investing in the tools and equipment, safety professionals and processes, and enhanced training to bring these services to our valued customers.
In March of this year, WWS was acquired by Pearce Services which reinforced its mission as an independent service provider for critical infrastructure in the renewable energy industry.
Each year WWS has met the rapid growth of the industry by enhancing its service capabilities and growing its team. It now has over 500 technicians now working in the field and sees its new wind technical services as a natural evolution in its ability to serve a diverse set of customers and extend the career path for its professionals.
