WindEnergy Hamburg provides a platform for companies to showcase products and begin dialogues about pressing issues and challenges in wind energy. Numerous leading companies will be there. Organizations will focus on innovations that provide wind farms with new tools to increase uptime, reduce costs, and improve the levelized cost of energy. SKF has plenty in store for WindEnergy Hamburg. What can you expect?
Wind turbine bearings in the spotlight
There will be a significant focus on innovative breakthroughs in bearing design, with many companies displaying their developments in this field. SKF will present its spherical roller bearings for wind turbine main shafts.
Simply smooth performance
Additionally, condition monitoring equipment will be in the spotlight. As digital transformation takes its hold on the wind energy sector, operators and maintenance staff require systems that are connected to the internet. This enables remote access and real-time analytics capabilities and is something that modern solutions must support.
SKF will present its condition monitoring system, the Multilog IMx-8. The solution enables staff to detect faults at an early stage and provides automated suggestions for adapting operating conditions. As a result, wind farm operators can improve machinery reliability and performance.
There’s more to the program than just products
Exhibiting companies will also provide industry insights. Experts will be on hand to give information and advice on key aspects of wind farm operations, from maintenance to lubrication and increasing component service life. They will also give talks about wind turbine technology developments in the pipeline, such as digital diagnostics tools.
There will be more than 1,400 companies exhibiting at WindEnergy Hamburg 2018.
Visitors to the SKF booth can also hear about the SKF large size bearing test center and the research that is going into developing more reliable bearings. This includes testing bearings with an outer ringer diameter of up to six metres under extreme dynamic loading conditions. SKF can be found in Hall B6 at Stand 370.
Tackling industry challenges as a collective
To overcome obstacles facing the wind energy sector, professionals must work together to find common solutions. WindEnergy Hamburg 2018 provides the platform for industry specialists to discuss new ideas and to learn more about innovations for reducing the levelized cost of energy.
