Whether functioning in a geared, hybrid, or direct drive design, a wind turbine’s main shaft arrangement must withstand axial and radial loads and operate under harsh, continuously changing conditions.

Depending on the individual requirements of your turbine design, SKF can provide solutions for flexible and rigid main shaft bearing arrangements.

  • Bearings
  • Housings
  • Seals
  • Lubrication
  • Condition monitoring
Partnering closely with customers, SKF designs integrated solutions for reliable turbine performance, and simplified installation and maintenance.
