Radial Sliding Systems for Wind Power Plants from ESB-VSB
Yaw bearings and radial bearings for MW systems and radial bearings for a 2.5 to 3.0 MW wind power plant. A good alternative to supporting the nacelle on a turnable bearing is to use a slew bearing ring. The flange of the slew bearing is constructed on many plastic segments. In the beginning, slew bearings were only used in smaller turbines but have been tried and tested also for big wind mill.
