Hyosung, Romax Partnership Continues


Hyosung has again selected Romax Technology as a leading partner in their wind energy activities. Following the success of their first collaborations on 750kW and 2MW wind turbine gearboxes, Hyosung and Romax will cooperate on future wind turbine projects.

Romax and Hyosung first worked together when the UK based consultancy supported Hyosung in the design and optimization of a 750kW and 2MW gearbox. Romax assisted in the collation of commercial and engineering market research and the concept design, detailed design, and manufacturing drawings. In addition, Romax has provided continuous testing and certification support. Both projects proved successful with the 750kW and 2MW gearboxes recently achieving type certification through DEWI-OCC (Offshore and Certification Centre GmbH) following successful field trials.

The success of these previous ventures and the standard of the technical and commercial support they received led Hyosung to select Romax as a key partner in their new venture. “Romax’s expertise in wind turbine engineering is an important factor in our success,” according to K.H. (Kevin) Ho, senior vice president of industrial machinery PU from Hyosung. “We have no doubt that this will continue well into our future collaborations, and we had no hesitation in choosing to work with Romax again.”

“We are delighted that Hyosung have asked us to partner with them again and we are confident that the partnership will yield more success for both Romax and Hyosung,” says Andy Poon, director of renewable energy at Romax. For more information go to www.romaxtech.com.
