Wind energy

Wind turbines are a growing part of the global strategy to reduce the carbon intensity of generated electricity. There are now more than 350,000 wind turbines spinning all around the world, with tens of thousands added to the grid each year.

The wind market poses many specific and unique challenges. From the need to establish offshore floating platforms to developing earthquake and typhoon resistant turbines, optimum efficiency, maximum uptime and reduced operation and maintenance costs are all of the utmost importance.

Our lubricant technologies for wind turbine gears and bearings allow oil formulators to create the next generation of wind turbine oils and greases by harnessing our expertise in tribology and rheology control.

Moreover, our REWITEC surface repair additives can help owners and operators repair wear and restore surfaces in older, already established turbines.
