SKF to showcase performance boosting technologies at WindEnergy Hamburg 2016

Being shown in Europe for the first time at the expo will be SKF’s newly developed spherical roller bearings for wind turbine main shafts.

At the WindEnergy Hamburg 2016 expo (Hamburg, 27 - 30 September), SKF will present a range of solutions specially developed to enhance profitability and turbine reliability in the wind power industry

Gothenburg, Sweden, 19 September 2016: SKF will be present at WindEnergy Hamburg 2016 to demonstrate how to optimise performance and increase turbine availability in the wind power sector through its range of dedicated technologies. From intelligent maintenance systems to bearings and lubrication system pumps, the innovations being showcased have all been designed to reduce the levelised cost of energy and maintenance requirements, while enhancing safety and energy output.

Being shown in Europe for the first time at the expo will be SKF's newly developed spherical roller bearings for wind turbine main shafts. These heavy duty bearings provide exceptional radial and axial robustness and outstanding reliability for sustainable energy production. Their adapted design means they can offer up to twice the fatigue life of conventional bearing types and can meet service life needs of more than 25 years for significant cost savings.

Also on show will be the Lincoln P623-S and P623-M electrically operated pumps with lightning protection for use in single-line and progressive automatic lubrication systems, respectively. Designed to withstand electromagnetic pulses caused by lightening strikes, these IP 67-rated models increase safety and meet the latest Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements to bring lubrication systems into compliance.

SKF experts will be available in the booth at WindEnergy Hamburg to give full information and advice on its wide range of sector-specific solutions.
