A strategic agreement has been signed by SKF and ReGen Powertech, a leading Indian wind turbine manufacturer. Under the agreement, SKF will supply pitch and yaw bearing sets and main shaft bearings for the company’s 1.5 MW wind turbines. The bearings will be manufactured at SKF’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ahmedabad in the state of Gujarat and are a reflection of SKF’s response and commitment to the Indian government’s “Make in India” programme.
