LIVONIA, Mich., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – PSI Repair Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries and leading independent service provider (ISP) to the wind energy industry, recently reached a service milestone with the shipment of its 10,000th wind turbine component repair. Since 2009, PSI has offered economical repairs, including upgraded/longer-life products, for out-of-warranty electronic, hydraulic and precision mechanical components that drive wind turbines’ pitch and yaw systems and down tower electronics. A sample of repaired components include printed circuit boards, PLCs, control cards, VRCC components, IGBTs, thyristors, H-Bridges (a.k.a., hub converters), pitch motors, hydraulic pumps, servo motors and transducers.
PSI Repair Services uses the latest diagnostic tools to detect failures down to the microchip level. Solutions can range from minor repairs to full replacement printed circuit boards, with enhanced designs to improve performance and reliability. PSI also provides comprehensive remanufacturing services for unsalvageable, obsolete components. Unlike other ISPs, PSI can take a cooling plate from a blown IGBT and completely rebuilt it. Service options like these allow operations and maintenance (O&M) professionals to significantly increase mean time between failures (MTBF) and prevent costly downtime and/or repeat repairs.
“The largest wind farms have called on PSI Repair Services for years because they know we have the experience and expertise that they can count on,” said Mike Fitzpatrick, General Manager of PSI Repair Services. “No other ISP can match PSI’s range of cost-saving services. When you think ISP, think PSI.”
