Romax Project Looks Set To Help South Korea Take Its Place In World Wind Turbine Market


Romax Technology, the leading supplier of software tools and services for transmissions engineering, has announced that its high profile project to enable a leading South Korean company to develop its own wind turbine units, has successfully completed its halfway stage.

Romax is working with Hyosung, South Korea's market leading producer of electricity systems, to help the company to design its own wind turbine units and subsequently launch South Korea as a key global player in the industry.

Hyosung has been manufacturing wind turbine equipment for several years, and with Romax's support looks set to be producing its own units by 2008
- making South Korea and Japan, the only major players in the Far East Asian wind turbine market.

Romax Technology's role in this major development project began two years after the company secured its ongoing partnership with Hyosung's Power and Industrial Systems Performance Group, following a successful pitch where it came onboard to help Hyosung to design gearbox systems for wind turbines.

Since this crucial first project, Romax has played a major role - it has assisted in the collation of commercial and engineering market research, helped to devise the concept designs for new models and helped to select the best designs to take forward. Throughout this entire process, Romax has provided continuous testing support and also helped Hyosung achieve its GL certificate - certification essential for wind turbine plant, to prove that it is fit for purpose.

Romax's world leading transmission and driveline software, RomaxDesigner has also been utilised to great effect throughout the project, allowing continuous virtual product testing and development without the need for physical build testing - with the company also providing bespoke consultancy whenever it has been required.

"Speed is essential to the success of this venture, and Romax Technology has not only provided us with the technology transfer and engineer training to empower our engineers with the expert edge in design and development, but it has also given us the software tools to allow these design solutions to evolve much faster," explains Hyosung Vice President, Mr. S. K. Lee.
