Successful assembly of three Main Bearing Units for a segmented 3MW Generator

The first three main bearing units for a new, customer specified generator solution were successfully assembled in December. As a result of its flexible design, a turbine manufacturer can mount a Main Bearing Unit on different types of wind turbines without having to change the attachment fittings on the hub or the nacelle. This modularization maximizes the number of parts that can be kept constant, in turn allowing a more standardized assembly and increasing cost savings.

The segmented generator will be built around the Main Bearing Unit in the first quarter of 2014, with the finished generator unit being mounted in a prototype in the second half of the year. eolotec will be supervising the startup as well as ensuring a problem free operation of the main bearings and generator.
