Self-aligning bearing solutions
Reduce nacelle weight and increase turbine reliability
Improving the performance of wind turbines has typically required design decisions that add weight - and cost - to the nacelle. The SKF self-aligning bearing solution for wind turbine main shafts offers an effective alternative that reduces nacelle weight and production costs, while increasing turbine reliability.
High load carrying capacity
The SKF self-aligning bearing solution for wind turbine main shafts features a spherical roller bearing in the locating position and a CARB toroidal roller bearing in the non-locating position. This combination offers a very high load carrying capacity in a smaller, lighter housing.
