Wind turbine greasing

For a wind farm, only the best lubrication system is good enough.  Lubrication must be effective and consistent to ensure that the wind turbine does not go into safety mode: this can be very costly.  The Twin heavy-duty system meets these extensive demands and is customized with all the necessary components for the successful greasing of wind turbines.

Automatically lubricates better

In a wind turbine the yaw bearing, generator, pitch bearing raceways, open gears and main bearing have to be lubricated automatically. The Groeneveld Twin heavy-duty system is the perfect solution for all of these applications. Automatic lubrication with the Groeneveld Twin offers major benefits:

  • A longer life span of the lubricated components 
  • Lubrication takes place while the turbine is in operation, so the grease spreads better over the surface
  • The grease is applied in small amounts at short intervals
  • A protective grease collar or film is created around the point where dirt and moisture are kept out
  • No risk of blown out seals

Why Groeneveld greasing for a wind turbine?

Quality maintenance is possible on a wind turbine with the proven reliability of the Twin heavy-duty system.  This product provides regular maintenance that ensures a problem-free and long wind turbine lifespan.

  • With low work pressure, Twin has an extremely long life span
  • Quality of the grease is preserved
  • High quality metering units and distribution blocks have a service life of 25 years

Groeneveld does not only provide the lubrication system, but also additional equipment. For proper greasing of an open gear, we offer a greasing sponge.  Fed by an automatic lubrication system, the sponge applies the grease equally to the open gear. In this way over and under greasing are prevented.
