A complete test rig unit has been delivered and installed at the GCI office in Eindhoven.

After months of preparation engineers from the company Technogerma Systems in Darmstadt (Germany) installed a new test rig unit at the office of Gear Chain Industrial in Eindhoven. The autonomous test rig container unit which is suitable to be placed indoors as well as outdoors, contains all the necessary installations such as electric motors, frequency convertors, air ventilation systems, oil conditioning units and a fire extinguishing system. The complete rig has been designed and tailor made to the specifications of GCI.

The power recirculation system re-uses the energy that is captured on the output side of the rig. In this way the energy consumption of the rig is strongly reduced.
