Wind Turbines

pix 01Halus Power Systems offers remanufactured Vestas wind turbines, almost exclusively.  Vestas is the largest wind turbine manufacturer in the world and the only major Danish pioneer wind turbine manufacturer still in business.  Although the turbine models that we offer have not been manufactured by Vestas for a number of years, Vestas still sells new parts for these units, which makes ongoing operations and maintenance easier than for other manufacturers no longer in business.  Vestas started mass producing wind turbines in the mid 1980’s with a 55 kW model.  Thousands of Vestas turbines were installed in California in the 1980’s and most of these turbines are still operational today.  Many more thousands of units have been installed throughout the USA and Vestas has installed over 52,000 units to date, worldwide.

Rebuilding Process

pix 01As the leading provider of remanufactured wind turbines in the nation our processes are second to none with respect to rebuilding wind turbines.  It is important to note there are other firms which supply used or reconditioned wind turbines and to briefly touch on major differences regarding level of work to the turbines.  A reconditioned wind turbine may only have a few (or no) new parts added to the unit.  It could have a minimal level of work done such as fluid changes (hydraulic and transmission) and a brief visual inspection.  Halus Power Systems has an extensive remanufacturing process.  There is no mechanical part on the turbine, including the transmission, that is not fully disassembled and rebuilt.  Each wind turbine completed by our shop has hundreds of new parts installed during the remanufacturing process.  We purchase many new parts from Vestas directly, which ensures the original manufacturer specifications are met.  We also have in-house machining and heavy fabrication for custom parts manufacturing.
