Journal Bearings for Wind Gearboxes
Journal bearing technology
By introducing the journal bearing technology for its gearboxes Winergy sets another milestone for the wind turbine drive technology. Bearings belong to the critical wear parts of wind gearboxes as they are exposed to high loads in operation and therefore have a significant impact on the overall gearbox reliability. As journal bearings have proven their advantages in several other heavy industries, Winergy developed the technology as an Alternative to common roller bearings.
- High reliability
- Low noise and vibration
- Optimized efficiency at lower costs
