30 years of experience with drive systems for wind energy plants: Reliable Bosch Rexroth solutions for efficient wind turbines

To reduce cost of energy – that's the key challenge for the wind industry. When developing new generations of wind turbines, manufacturers must demonstrate that their new developments are more reliable, perform better and are easier to maintain and service. In order to score points, they use gearboxes, hydraulic pitch and condition monitoring systems (CMS) from Bosch Rexroth.

Since the 1980ies, Bosch Rexroth has supplied thousands of ever more efficient, powerful and reliable gearbox and drive solutions for pioneering generations of turbines. One such solution are the REDULUS GPV-D main gearboxes for multi-megawatt wind turbines. With Bosch Rexroth, customers benefit from the company's innovativeness, stability and quality awareness. Using intelligent calculation methods such as multi-body simulation (MBS), we work with our customers to design a drive train that is optimized for cost and noise without, however, compromising its reliability.

And with innovative services - like condition-based maintenance via Internet - Bosch Rexroth increases the wind turbines' availability even further. A great example is our rotor blade monitoring systems - such as BLADEcontrol, which is available in several hundred turbines. It detects ice formation directly on the rotor blade.

This is how Bosch Rexroth supports its customers in a unique fashion during the entire life cycle of the wind turbine: As a long-term development partner, a global supplier and, finally, a local service partner.
