Although the height imposes additional challenges for turbine maintenance, proper lubrication is essential to ensure safe and efficient operations of your turbine. Vestas has therefore introduced automatic lubrication for the yaw system. The automatic lubrication for the yaw system helps to prevent wear due to metallic contact between rolling elements. Delivering the smallest effective amount of grease at predefined intervals, the system reduces friction and prevents contamination. The lubrication system is designed to withstand temperature extremes, environmental influences and vibrations of the wind turbine. By installing the automatic lubrication system you ensure correct lubrication of the yaw ring. This will help you to maintain the turbine’s efficiency and durability. Our automatic lubrication system has proven to increase turbine reliability, while reducing operating expenses. As a result of these improvements, this upgrade has become a standard feature in new turbines.
