Hands-on solutions to analyse failures, find solutions and implement upgrades.
We don't just fix your wind turbine problems - we help you resolve them before they happen and enhance the design of your wind turbine for improved output and longer lifetime. Romax is a world leading independent designer of wind turbine gearboxes and drivetrains. We have 33 DNV GL certified designs in production ranging in capacity from 750kW to 6MW. This gives us an unparalleled understanding of the heart of wind turbines.
Our engineering and consulting services help you:
Being able to forecast the remaining useful life of wind turbine gearboxes is vital for maintenance strategies and effective financial planning.
With us you can use accurate life models to:
Our expert engineering team help you quickly find the root cause of your drivetrain failures. Depending on the issue, our team of expert engineers look for evidence from many sources to quickly identify the cause of failure, including:
Once we have identified the cause of failure, we can then help you to resolve and prevent further failures from occurring.
Improve your wind turbine health by accurately calculating drivetrain loads.
Drivetrain loads can often be a key factor in the root cause of wind turbine failure. Our specialised equipment - which is installed in just one day - collects data from the drivetrain and transmits back to a data centre for analysis. This data provides actual loads on the machine and looks at the fatigue loading duty cycles on the following components:
From here we calculate the effect of loads on life. Using this data, wind farm operators are then able to increase the reliability of their turbines through accurate drivetrain loading.
Lubrication systems play a critical part in turbine health. They help to:
You can extend the life of your gearbox with support from us. We can:
As well as offering world-class solutions for measuring drivetrain vibration, we also provide bespoke instrumentation and measurement services. Whether a custom measurement or a more routine case, we can provide the equipment, installation, data and analysis to resolve your issue.
Common projects include:

Gearbox Express selected Romax for support on re-engineering and design improvements to a 2+MW gearbox for their Revolution platform. The gearbox is supplied to owners of one of the most common turbine models in the North American market. Romax’s predictive maintenance technology and previous successful projects for Gearbox Express supported the selection.
We chose to work with Romax Technology because they have very strong technological capabilities and they have solid business experience in this field.
