Advancing the Future of Energy - Wind Turbines

 1st Feb 2012

Wind turbines today are running for longer, at faster speeds and more efficiently than ever before. But to help meet the UK target of generating 15% of its energy supply from renewable sources every year, electricity generated from wind turbines must become more price competitive than in the past.

To optimise wind turbine performance, advanced lubrication and related services have been developed to help wind farm operators increase wind turbine availability and reduce unscheduled downtime. Mobilgear SHC XMP Series’ supreme performance has the key factors needed to obtain wind turbine efficiency. Selecting fully-synthetic industrial gear oils, designed to provide optimum equipment protection and oil life even under extreme conditions, can provide a proactive approach to maintenance. Wind farm operators can significantly improve the productivity of their operations and reduce the costs involved.

Wind TurbinesTake the main gearbox for example; a key component of a wind turbine. To help maximise productivity and reduce unscheduled downtime, the gear oil needs to offer high levels of performance in all the critical areas required to keep a gearbox working efficiently.

With its balanced formulation, Mobilgear SHC XMP 320 exceeds the performance of conventional, mineral-based oils by extending the interval between oil changes from 18 months to three years or more. We are pleased to say that the fully synthetic gear oil is used in over 30,000 wind turbine gearboxes worldwide, and is approved by the majority of the top twelve global wind turbine manufacturers.
