Munich, September 2010 – The ever larger wind power stations with ever higher capacities that are being built today prove to hold constantly new challenges for their operators regarding operational reliability and maintenance. A focal topic is the reliable lubrication of these turbines and their components. At this year's HUSUM Wind Energy, Klüber Lubrication will be presenting its comprehensive portfolio of services tailored to the specific needs of the wind energy sector as well as high-quality speciality lubricants at stand 14 in hall 4B. Besides development partnerships and application consulting, these services encompass also on-site support during lubricant changeover, lubrication charts, lubricant and component analyses as well as special seminars for the wind energy sector.
Optimised combinations of lubricant and seal are another major topic at the stand of the lubrication specialist. In the course of their "Lube&Seal" cooperation, the two Freudenberg companies Klüber Lubrication and Simrit are developing matching solutions. In other branches of industry, e.g. power transmission engineering and the maritime industry, Lube&Seal solutions are already contributing to reliable component and equipment performance and a long service life.
In addition, Klüber Lubrication will be presenting its portfolio of powerful gear oils, an innovative special grease for all rolling and plain bearings in wind power plants and an extraordinarily adhesive special lubricant for open gears. The experts from Klüber will also be available for information and discussions on for-life lubrication of gears in wind turbines.
There is hardly another industry where maintenance is so laborious, and where downtimes can be as consequential as in the wind energy sector. The need for unscheduled maintenance or defective components may in some cases lead to downtimes of up to several months. The operators of wind power plants as well as R&D and maintenance specialists can now benefit from the high-quality speciality lubricants and the new KlüberServiceSystem, which is based on the comprehensive know-how of Klüber Lubrication's tribology experts. The focus is always on reliable component function, the extension of maintenance intervals and energy-efficient solutions.
