Availon reports that it is enjoying steady growth in Japan, with an increasing number of orders for main wind turbine generator components.
The cornerstone of the company's success is its collaboration with the local EOS Engineering & Service Co. Ltd., with which it has been working for the past five years.
"EOS Engineering & Service and Availon share the approach to provide maximum availability and efficiency of the wind turbine generators. Know-how and reliability characterize our partnership,"said Markus Spitzer, Managing Director of Availon.
"Our activities have been growing extremely dynamically, thanks to a strong demand for our offering in what’s clearly becoming a very busy market. Thanks to these positive developments, EOS has become one of the most significant clients in the replacement part business of Availon,” Spitzer said.
The cooperation started out with Availon’s delivery of grid coupling contactors for wind turbine generators of the type GE 1.5, nowadays it also includes delivering main components like gearboxes, generators or main bearings. EOS Engineering & Service takes care of about 250 wind turbines, including 180 of the type GE 1.5.
