 ERIKS, Europe's largest industrial distributor of maintenance related products and services, is increasing its profile in the renewables sector in line with a predicted rise in need for MRO. The share of spend in the renewables industry on MRO has been relatively low up until now due to the relative infancy of the market, as these markets age however spend on MRO is set to increase as the need to maintain plant increases with time. Take wind turbines for instance, if the turbine is fairly new the MRO share may only be 10-15% of the kWh produced, but this may increase to at least 20-35% by the end of the turbines life. In addition, many of the wind farms will soon be ready for their first major overhaul which may no longer be covered by their original maintenance agreements.ERIKS has been providing technical know-how to the renewable industry for several years with a variety of products and services. Recently, however, as the MRO market leader, they have focussed on raising this profile through membership of EEEGR, providing clients with a direct access to a trusted supplier or maintenance products and services, along with an office at OrbisEnergy, which is located at the heart of the renewables sector to ensure the growing needs of the industry are met. ERIKS portfolio of solutions has been tailored to meet the industries exact needs through a wealth of experience working for some of the largest players in a number of countries, one such example is Gamesa Spain, who needed specialist oil seals for their main bearings, which ERIKS were able to design, develop and manufacture at their Sealing Technology facility to solve the customers problem. In addition ERIKS have the unique ability in being able to offer a complete service package, enhanced by their national CMP status from SKF, and a complete spares package, ensuring the solution to a future increase in MRO needs has already been met.
