Bosch Rexroth enters blade monitoring business
1 June 2009
Bosch Rexroth, a supplier of gearboxes and hydraulic systems to the wind industry since the 1980s, is entering the business of wind turbine rotor blade condition monitoring through its acquisition of specialist service firm IGUS ITS. Details of the purchase price have not been divulged. As well as monitoring blade condition, IGUS ITS can also identify blade icing problems, "the only company worldwide that offers this technology," says Bosch Rexroth. IGUS ITS, with a turnover in 2008 of about EUR 0.7 million, will now become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bosch Rexroth.
