Flender to open new industrial hub facility in Sydney

German drive train manufacturer Flender is opening a new facility in Sydney to support its wind turbines drives and heavy industry.

It comes as the company increases its focus on the renewable energy industry, supporting its Winergy brand for wind turbine drives, and is part of a push to scale up local presence and be closer to its customers.

The new Sydney facility will cover more than 1800 square metres and has the structural capacity for a 50 tonne crane.

It is the company’s fourth service hub in Australia, which includes sites in Rockhampton, Perth and Melbourne.

Flender says the new facility will be able to repair gearboxes up to 40 tonnes as well as equipment like main shafts for wind turbines, lube systems, fluid couplings and brakes.

Flender Australia and NZ managing director Kareem Emara says the new facility is about getting its services closer to customers.

“With the new facility in Sydney we are continuing to be more agile and respond to their needs as quickly as possible. Using our OEM knowledge and technical expertise we can provide proactive support.”

Flender Gorup CEO Andreas Evertz says that “for both our wind and industrial businesses we see enormous growth potential on the continent,”

“To reach the goals from the Paris climate agreement we must not only ramp up renewable energy capabilities but also transform our industries towards sustainability.

“Our workshops are perfectly equipped for servicing and refurbishing the existing installed base, not only for our own fleet but all gearbox types in the market.”
