Service Agreement with US-based Magnetech enables The Switch to provide strong after-sales support to North American customers for its cutting-edge PMG and full-power converter package.
"Magnetech is an ideal partner for us in North America because they know the energy and renewable power business well. They have a strong reputation in this sector," says Ari Suutarinen, Director After-Sales Services of The Switch. "This agreement is key to us in being able to carry out our full approach of working with customers. In addition to working with the design of the wind turbine concept and providing streamlined production, after-sales activities which we call The Proactive Switch are vital to ensure that customers are getting the highest achievable availability with their wind turbines. Magnetech will not only provide the local maintenance and technical support, the company will also play a key role in training the operating personnel to maximize the output from their turbines."
