Brake System GE 1.5

Passive yaw brake systems for wind power plant

Passive yaw brake systems allow for the continuing braking of the nacelle of the wind turbine. Brake systems from ESB-VSB for wind turbines are cost effective and nearly maintenance-free due to their robust and simple design. High-class parts guarantee a high reliability. Thus, the wind turbine is nearly completely failsafe. Braking systems from ESB-VSB offer high efficiency during the complete life cycle of the turbine.
