Hansen Delivers First Gearbox from Chinese Facility
April 13, 2009—Hansen Transmissions announced the delivery of the first gearbox manufactured in the new facility in the Beichen Hi-tech Industrial Park, Tianjin, China. The delivery occurs six months after construction began on the 250,000m2 assembly and test facility, and it will be deployed in a 2.1 MW Suzlon turbine. The Tianjin facility is modeled after Hansen's facility in Lommel, Belgium and will use the same manufacturing machines and processes.
"The delivery of this first gearbox from our Chinese facility, on time and on budget, represents another milestone for Hansen," says Ivan Brems, CEO. "The facility in China will add to Hansen's capabilities to supply high quality products in Belgium, India and China."
