Requirement: design wind turbine drivetrain and study scalability to 10MW
Services provided: we were engaged to size and compare drivetrain concepts to enable our client to select appropriate technology for next-generation turbine development. Assessing technical risks, cost of energy and manufacturing limits for each concept, we enabled the client to make a genuinely informed choice of drivetrain layout.
Requirement: design a new transmission system for a marine application
Services provided: we were engaged by a client to provide Feasibility Studies for parallel, planetary and perpendicular gear types, as well as Concept Design selection, comparing bearing concepts and studying system packaging. We identified a number of designs that met the client's requirements, and would fit inside the existing vessel hull in a short period of time.
Requirement: wind turbine gearbox design and development
Services provided: enabling more than 36 gearbox and drivetrain designs with certification. We developed and delivered a best practice design process for fast right-first-time results. By 2016 more than 1500 of Romax-designed gearboxes will have been shipped.
Requirement: design new manual transmission for GM Korea
Services provided: design services from concept to prototype drawings, UK prototyping with testing by a Romax Partner, support for rig and vehicle testing. All targets met for gearbox development, and the transmission was produced in volumes of more than one million units per annum.
