Reliable and cost-effective sub-micron machining solutions for wind industry
The wind industry is under enormous pressure to reduce cost per MWh. They need to improve turbine designs, raise performance, and increase reliability – all while reducing maintenance costs.
Wind turbine operators must ensure that their assets remain operational for as long as possible. Turbines often operate under tough conditions – offshore, in cold climates, or in remote locations – which can limit their performance and reliability. The high cost of repairs and long lead times for replacement parts can make energy generation uncompetitive. Anything that prevents a service trip can boost return on investment and reduce the cost of energy.
Generators, gearboxes, and bearing manufacturers are vital players to design cost-effective solutions for the future of this industry. Their precision components must withstand big loads, stresses, and vibrations and operate under punishing environmental conditions. Quality machining is key to reducing fatigue, improving retention of lubrication, and increasing life.
