Rexroth Solution:

Choose reliable and wind generation technology, including gearboxes and remote condition monitoring systems, engineered for long-term performance under difficult conditions, combined with proactive service and maintenance programs that boost reliability, minimize downtime and maximize energy production and ROI.

Key Insights & Considerations

  • Although hardened against weather, regular on-site inspection and preventative maintenance help sustain long-term returns
  • Selecting components such as direct drives, magnetic bearings and torque splitting systems harness wind gusts, minimize impact on rotors and other components
  • Use of modular turbine components can simplify maintenance access and tasks
  • Redundant condition monitoring systems with multi-layer data exchange allows turbines to continue generating in the event of a fault
  • Work with service organizations with wind-turbine technology experience, 24/7 response capabilities and global/local footprint
