Located in Houston Texas the primary focus the coming years is to support the US wind service market with local availability of IEC metric electric motors. One of the main drivers behind the investment has been the increased demand from US wind service companies as well as European OEM manufactures within hydraulics and cooling applications for wind turbines.
“With the establishment of Hoyer Inc. we expand our wind market footprint as well as geographical outlook in general. We see it as a significant step towards achieving our long-term growth ambitions” says Henrik Sørensen, CEO, Hoyer Group.
It is expected that Hoyer Inc. will also allow Hoyer to expand their business within other markets such as industrial OEM’s as several of their European customers operate with US subsidiaries.
Availability is key
Part of the Hoyer Inc. setup is the establishment from a local stock of IEC metric electric motors as short delivery times are essential to the wind service industry. The first 350 motors are ready from stock in Houston in February 2021 and throughout the year Hoyer will continue to increase the stock availability.
“Based on our after sales experience across markets and industries we know we need to provide availability while being flexible and easy to do business with. That is why Hoyer Inc. is an essential part of the ambition to provide added value to our US wind customers” says Ketil Vesterlund, CCO, Hoyer Group.
The initial stock consists of UL/CSA approved Wind Motors designed for hydraulic and cooling applications such as oil filtering units, oil cooling and lubrication systems. All motors are available in 575V-60Hz or 690V-60Hz design depending on the turbine specifications.
