PSI Repair reaches 60,000 repaired parts milestone


PSI Repair Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries and an independent service provider to the wind-energy industry, recently announced that it surpassed 60,000 repaired wind-turbine parts for the wind-energy market.

“For over a decade, the largest wind farms in North America have relied on PSI to fix their critical turbine parts,” said Mike Fitzpatrick, general manager of PSI Repair Services, Inc. “Simply put, nobody can match PSI’s comprehensive repair and engineering services or our highly skilled technicians.”

PSI offers component repair and engineering services for GE, Vestas, Gamesa, Siemens, RePower, Acciona, Suzlon, Nordex, Mitsubishi, and Clipper wind turbines. PSI covers the critical electronic, hydraulic, and precision mechanical components that drive the turbines’ pitch and yaw systems and down-tower electronics. Commonly repaired components include printed circuit boards, pitch drive systems, inverters, IGBTs, PLCs, VRCC units, AEBIs, proportional valves, hydraulic pumps, pitch and yaw motors, encoders, slip rings, transducers, yaw modules, 3-phase bridge rectifiers, blade bearing automatic grease dispensers, active crowbars, line reactors, oil level sensors, battery chargers, cold climate converters, anemometers, and more.

PSI’s engineering services include custom tests, root cause analysis, product upgrades, remanufacturing, and new product manufacturing services. The test program uses diagnostic equipment, allowing PSI to detect hard part failures, as well as parts degraded due to stress, right down to the microchip level. The root-cause analysis service allows PSI to get a view into a customer’s production environment to identify all the elements connected to recurring problems so the appropriate corrective actions eliminate the problem. The product upgrade service allows PSI to improve upon legacy design with newer, more reliable technology. PSI’s remanufacturing services are available for obsolete and unsalvageable parts, such as circuit boards and power supplies. Finally, the new product manufacturing service is available for customers who need a cost-effective option to produce a small run of unique legacy parts or components.
