In September of 2022, Galetech Group acquired the Northern Ireland-based Precision Gear Company (PGC) from Macrete Ireland Ltd. PGC has become OptiGear and will continue to specialise in the international collection, maintenance and refurbishment of gearboxes.
OptiGear will continue to serve clients in the EU and UK wind, rail, marine, and mining sectors.
Together with Optinergy (Ireland’s leading independently owned operation and maintenance service provider to the renewable industry), we will work in collaboration to provide clients access to an inventory of multi-brand gearbox and components, in addition to a top-class repair and maintenance service.
OptiGear will also offer the management and climate-controlled storage of these parts and the capacity to deliver their turnkey (tower ready) installation. This new service, when combined with parts exchange, will result in reduced downtime for wind farm operators, ensuring that renewable energy production is stable and efficient.
