Windlub system to support ERG
Some two years ago, SKF was carrying out a multiplatform approach on ERG turbines when the opportunity arose to introduce the company to the concept of planned servicing. In addition to the existing SKF lubrication systems, new automated lubrication solutions were also included – specifically, SKF’s Windlub centralized lubrication system.
Over time, it is expected that automated lubrication systems will be rolled out across ERG’s huge wind turbine estates to optimize bearing service life, increase turbine uptime and reduce manpower costs, all of which will help make the company’s wind farms more profitable in the long term.
