EDF Renewable Services (EDF RS) and Romax Technology have signed a partnership agreement where EDF RS will provide labour specialists for Romax’s technical and engineering services.
By combining Romax’s deep technical knowledge in drivetrain design, turbine reliability and independent engineering with EDF Renewable Services expert field technicians and years of experience, the companies together will provide greater value to their customers by rapidly deploying technicians and reducing costs.
Romax regularly supports most of the top 20 wind owner/operators in the U.S. with a focus on building technology in its Romax InSight division to improve turbine reliability and better manage the costs of failure, through monitoring, predictive maintenance, life extension, failure analysis, inspections, and related services. By working closely with EDF RS, the firm is able to faster scale its InSight technology to reduce the cost of energy for the industry.
Ashley Crowther, Group VP from Romax InSight discusses the relationship: “After running many projects with EDF RS, such as portable vibration, inspections and on-turbine engineering, it was clear they were the right partner. EDF RS brings depth of experience along with very capable technician and technology teams. By jointly supporting clients on predictive and preventative maintenance activity, as well as end of warranty services, together we will bring a lot of value to our clients.”
Kurt Christensen, EDF Renewable Services Business Development Manager commented: “Partnering with Romax allows each of us to use our core competencies to create hybrid offerings. This is an excellent opportunity as both organisations have a strong presence in the Americas as well as Europe, and both organisations continue to grow with the global expansion of wind.”
