Start of main content

The Gamesa Gearbox business unit was founded in Vizcaya, an entrenched industrial region in northern Spain. The unit boasts over 60 years' experience and know-how in the end-to-end management of the gearbox life cycle: from their design to their manufacturing and sale and extension of their useful lives via reengineering.

Gamesa Gearbox has a flexible and collaborative productive and organisational structure, giving it the ability to respond and adapt to external changes swiftly. 

From its facilities in Vizcaya, Burgos, Galicia and Guipuzcoa, all of which ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001 certified, the unit services the following sectors:

Wind power

Gamesa Gearbox boasts more than 20 years' experience making wind turbine gearboxes, having installed over 15 GW worldwide. With a broad range of technologies and services and 18 product platforms (offering capacity of up to 5 MW), Gamesa Gearbox delivers what customers need in this sector.

Thanks to reengineering processes and continuous dialogue with its customers, Gamesa Gearbox leverages cutting-edge production methods to extend the useful lives of a broad range of wind turbine gearboxes. 

From the factory in Burgos, Gamesa Gearbox offers end-to-end smelting solutions: from the design of the parts to their smelting, coating and final machining. Deep sector knowledge ensures flexible delivery times, the nimble industrialisation of new products and alloys and cost savings.

Marine propulsion

With an extensive track record trading under the Tacke-Olalde name, Gamesa Gearbox witnessed and played a role in the development of Spain's naval industry. 

The know-how built up in the construction of marine propulsion gearboxes, coupled with the knowledge and skills acquired in the wind industry, enables this unit to offer much-needed reliability and enhanced service in this segment.

Other industrial sectors

The Echesa and Tacke-Olalde trademarks, renowned globally, are a testament to the experience built up working in industrial sectors with highly-demanding operating requirements: the automotive, steel, hydro power, mining and paper industries.
