Large giants are rising at the horizon, providing thousands of families with renewable energy.
The heart of these offshore giants is beating non-stop at 8.4 MW. Get impressed by the power and reliability of this gearbox.
3 planets turning around the sun deliver an 8.4 MW medium speed integrated solution and handle a torque rate of 8 400 kNm.
Thanks to the upgradeable design this gearbox is able to handle close to 10 000kNm.
Loads are shared by splitting up the high torque input into two planetary stages, each of them designed with lowest complexity.
This generator side integrated gearbox strikes an attractive balance between reliability and complexity. High durability and low maintenance costs make this competitive solution.
To safeguard the OPEX and enable a planned service strategy, the gearbox incorporates an innovative internal sensor system. The system consists out of vibration, temperature and pressure sensors. In addition, dynamic load measurements can be added. This way it is possible to monitor the health of all relevant components and further improve performance.
