Wind turbines are intentionally located in extreme environments, and subjected to constantly-changing high loads. Gearboxes and bearings face continuous and intense strain; however, maintenance is an arduous task performed only at long intervals. While trouble-free operation is critical to profitable production, it is hard to achieve under these conditions. Accordingly, wind power plant operators need specialty lubricants which perform reliably, protect components and provide extended maintenance intervals.
Specialty lubricants for wind turbines represent a minor investment that can bring tremendous benefits. Our flushing greases lead up to 40 per cent less downtime in generators, and we offer a universal maintenance grease that’s suitable for all bearings. Our high performance gear oils show a good load-carrying capacity and ageing resistance as well as low friction. Further specialty greases are available for main bearings, blade bearings, generator bearings and yaw bearings.
