Today, wind power is the world’s fastest growing energy source. When ZF Wind Power in Belgium needed an expansion of the compressed air capacity at its site in Lommel, Atlas Copco recommended GA 160 VSD FF compressors and an ES central control system to optimize their compressed air usage. “Working with companies who understand our business and can support us is of paramount importance, and Atlas Copco was clearly the best fit,” says Rob Loos, Senior Technician at the Lommel site.
The ZF Group is a leading global automotive supplier for driveline and chassis technology. With its ZF Wind Power division, focusing on the design, manufacture and supply of tailor-made gearboxes for wind turbines, the Group has become a major player in the wind power market.
“ I need to make sure that production runs smoothly. Atlas Copco provides proper maintenance and rapid intervention if necessary. I know that every morning when we start up the assembly lines, the GA’s will do their job. Now, we don’t have to worry about the compressed air and can focus on other activities. In short, we are happy to have Atlas Copco as a partner. ”
