AeroTorque Corp., a U.S. manufacturing and engineering firm for torsional control products and torque monitoring for wind turbines, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Frontier Pro Services.
The sales partnership serves to further introduce AeroTorque’s innovative WindTC, asymmetric torsional control, and their WindTM, torque monitoring services, to a broader audience in the U.S. wind market.
“It was a natural fit, to bring the market’s top experts in drive train inspection and analysis, and our unique offering together. Their experience with gearbox fleets and contacts in the industry are a win-win for us and for our customers.” said Doug Herr, General Manager of AeroTorque Corporation.
“The Frontier Pro group continues to focus on delivering long-term reliability centered solutions,” said Paul Baker, VP business development of Frontier Pro Services. “This is the first solution I’ve seen come to market, that eliminates a cause of failures, rather than mitigating them.”
Together, the two companies expect to see good synergies between Frontier Pro’s service offerings and AeroTorque’s products. AeroTorque’s WindTC is designed to retrofit on turbines from 600 KW to 1.5 MW and reduces the effects of torsional reversals to 40% of nominal torque. It further reduces both the magnitude of the impact loads in the gearboxes and the strain rate and speed of the impact. They have field experience on turbines up to 2 MW and can monitor the torque on any size turbine above 600 KW.
