The facility is one of only a few in the world capable of servicing all makes and types of gearboxes and drive train components and is the only OEM facility on the west coast with a 1.5 MW load test bench capable of testing complete drive systems up to a voltage of 6.6 KV. Flender has the largest installed base of industrial drives in Western Australia. Some installations have been in operation since the 1970s and are still in service today in mine and port locations across the Pilbara and other regions of WA. “Having been in WA for over 40 years, our view is and always has been long-term. Whilst COVID-19 has presented challenges to the economy, we have taken a longterm view and are confident in our expansion plans to help set up the right support structure for the nation’s critical energy infrastructure and industries. We are supporting critical industries such as mining now and are preparing for future growth in other industries,” said Kareem Emara, CEO and Managing Director at Flender Australia.
