RENK-MAAG installs two high efficiency gearboxes in a Powerplant in Bernburg, Germany
A chemical plant in Bernburg, Germany, installed in 1994 two Siemens V64.3 gas turbines (62 MW) and two turbo gearboxes from a leading German vendor. After a few years the end-user decided to replace both gearboxes from the German vendor with those from RENK-MAAG.
Recently, after reaching the midterm of the power plant, the end-user had to renew the licence. Due to stricter environmental regulations the end-user decided to replace current RENK-MAAG gearboxes with two new high efficiency HET Gear® gearboxes from RENK-MAAG. The current gearboxes will be kept as spare.
Following innovations from RENK-MAAG result in best in class reliability for vacuum turbo gearboxes:
- Tooth flank modification, in order to compensate bending, torsional and thermal deflections, hence enabling even distribution of force over the whole tooth flank.
- Superior heat treatment, thus avoiding barrelling of the gear and premature wear
- Adjustable fourth bearing, hence enabling accurate parallel alignment of gears
- >99% Efficiency
