Gearboxes for thermal power plants

There is a long engineering, manufacturing and service tradition of gearboxes and gears for gas and steam turbine drives, turbo compressors and auxiliary starting drives in Wikov.

The installations base before 2004 under Škoda brand has been continuously extended by new gearboxes with Wikov logo. Apart of the high-speed gearboxes for turbine drives we provide for catalogue and customized gear solutions for belt conveyors, vertical mills for coal, wet ball mills for limestone grinding, feed pumps and other applications.
