Bearing Design

Bearing Design

As wind turbines evolve from small megawatt towers to multi-megawatt energy systems, the components that make the turbine function and operate must evolve too. To keep the turbine running more reliably and for longer periods of time, all of the components must be optimized to work together in harmony.

Wind turbine bearings are prone to reliability issues as they are often exposed to dynamic and unpredictable stresses from rapidly changing load variations and wind flux. Failure for the bearings to perform their mission-critical function could decrease wind turbine uptime, resulting in less wind energy being turned into profit.

Our team of engineers has a deep, fundamental understanding of bearing performance and design for any turbine size and drivetrain configuration. This intimate knowledge of wind turbine systems allows for highly optimized bearing designs for virtually all applications and environments. In addition, our state-of-the-art condition monitoring systems and customized software for advanced analysis of dynamic bearings systems can proactively detect problems such as erosion and degradation before they occur.

Bearing Designs: Innovative, Reliable, Durable, Flexible.
