Reduce turbine size and costs

Wind
As wind power is gaining momentum, turbine manufacturers are looking for ways to make production more efficient and less costly.

SKF engineer Matthias Hofmann offers a solution: the SKF Nautilus main shaft bearing. This innovation enables very compact nacelle designs with main gearboxes or directly-driven generators mounted close to the rotor hub.

The result is a drastic reduction in size, weight, maintenance and turbine costs. This is a great example of what we call Knowledge Engineering. And yet another way of how we apply our know-how by utilizing our wide range of products and services to help increase efficiency, save energy and reduce environmental impact.
