Wind energy

  • The wind energy industry is under tremendous pressure to reduce its cost per megawatt hour by improving turbine design, increasing performance, and improving reliability – while reducing maintenance costs.
  • Wind Energy operators must ensure that their assets remain operational for as long as possible. Turbines often operate in harsh conditions – offshore, in cold climates or in remote areas – which can limit their performance and reliability. High maintenance costs and long lead times for replacement parts can make energy production uncompetitive.
  • We design and develop bearings, seals, condition monitoring systems and lubrication systems that enable more cost-effective wind energy generation and lower lubricant consumption.

Applications of Wind energy

  • Because wind turbines are not easily maintained, the bearings involved in wind power generation need to be extremely reliable.
  • Wind turbines can be tens or even more than 100 meters high, and with a design life of 20 years, they must be durable, including the bearings. nsk uses advanced computer simulation technology and our in-depth knowledge of materials and heat treatment to design wind turbine bearings. We also thoroughly test and evaluate the actual bearings under realistic conditions.
  • SKF has first-class capabilities among the world’s bearing manufacturers in all of these technologies. We will continue to respond to the needs and expectations of the wind power industry by ensuring that our products and capabilities continue to evolve.

FAQ

Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

  1. The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running.
  2. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.

Sure, free samples are available for stock products if you can pay for the shipping cost.

We have regular stock for standard bearings that can be shipped right after your payment. It will take 15-60 days for new production order,which depends on your order quantity.

  1. All our bearings are 100% inspected strictly before packing.
  2. If any defective products received, please provide photos and video to show us the problem and help us improve the quality.
  3. New products will be sent to you as replacement if the probelm is product quality.
