Composite Replacement Parts

Aftermarket Replacement Parts for Wind Turbines

For operators of existing fleets and resellers of pre-owned turbines, MFG is a premium resource for aftermarket closeout platforms and flanges, balance boxes, flex brackets, root-band covers, hatch covers and other FRP components.

We can quickly fabricate new components from tooling generated from a worn or damaged part using a process that does not cause further deterioration of the original. When original specifications are unknown, we can determine the laminates by reverse engineering.

 

Capability Overview

Large scale facility includes four manufacturing bays with a total of 135,000 sq. ft. A portion of the facility is temperature controlled between 68-77°F and humidity-controlled from 40-50%.
