than 500 bolts alone go into a wind turbine.
This does not include the hundreds of other types of fasteners
that bring a wind turbine to life, keeping it standing safely
and securely while producing electricity.
Typical bolting areas on a wind turbine include:
Front main bearing;
Blade to bearing;
Main shaft to the hub;
Nacelle and yaw bearing;
Nacelle frame; and
Rear main bearing.
The gear unit is one of the main
components in a wind turbine.
It transmits the power and the rotational energy of the rotor
blades to the generator, which creates electric energy. The
uncompromising reliability of the gear unit is crucial for the
maximal performance of a wind turbine.
