Wind in the spotlight – It’s nearly time for a leading wind power event
On November 7–9, 2017, Warnemünde, Germany will play host to the 26th Windenergietage (Wind Energy Days). Many international wind power companies will exhibit. SKF will present about the opportunities of aging wind turbines and proactive maintenance. But what else can visitors look forward to?
Video: Let’s talk – The current situation in the wind power industry
As an investor, what can one expect from the modern wind power industry? The sector is going through a period of rapid change. New products are continuously being introduced that make wind energy more efficient and profitable. However, this also presents challenges.
What’s trending in wind? – Predictions for market trends in wind power
Wind energy is becoming increasingly important to our society. As a result, the industry is changing – and so is the market and the opportunities that it presents. We take a closer look at emerging market trends in wind energy and what implications these might have.
A well-rounded approach
The stage is set – SKF to present on wind turbine bearings at Quo Vadis
Save the date: On September 27–28, 2017, the Quo Vadis conference will be taking place in London. At the event, SKF will give a presentation to explain how optimized spherical roller bearings for wind turbine rotors benefit the industry.
Wind O&M market set to soar – Findings from the 2017 Service Market Survey
The experts have spoken: A survey carried out at the 2017 SKF Wind Farm Management Conference has indicated that the global wind operations and maintenance (O&M) market is expected to grow by around 15% by 2020. Read on to discover what the findings of the poll could mean for the wind industry.
Fighting against the current – Protecting bearings from electrical erosion
Electrical erosion is a common cause of bearing failure – something that can lead to complications for wind farm operators, such as downtime or reduced productivity. However, there is a cost-effective solution to this. SKF collaborated with a wind turbine generator manufacturer to resolve the issue.
Up to the test? – New test center for wind turbine main bearings
In order for a wind turbine bearing to be as effective and durable as possible, it must be tested thoroughly. This is not always an easy task, with few facilities having the capabilities to put large-size bearings through their paces. SKF recently built and opened the world’s most powerful test center for this purpose.
Driving force – Improving wind turbine efficiency and productivity
SKF helps the wind industry produce more energy. In this episode of SKF BeyondZero TV, racecar driver Jeff Burton visits a wind farm and a turbine manufacturer to see SKF solutions in action.
