Gearboxes for wind turbines are bearing up

NKE Austria has received two orders for bearings for the gearboxes of wind turbines. Two German gearbox manufacturers awarded the contracts worth a total of over 1.6 million euros. Comprehensive technical advice and excellent cost effectiveness were the factors that prompted the gearbox manufacturers to choose NKE. "We work closely with our customers: from technical calculation through certification to product development, our customers can count on our expertise and flexible, unbureaucratic cooperation," explains Heimo Ebner, managing director of NKE. "The wind energy sector is of strategic importance for us: in Germany alone, the total added value in the wind turbine sector increased by 28 percent in 2005." The bearings from NKE used in the turbine gearboxes have outside diameters of up to 820 mm.
