Share this post

The webinar will first introduce the company aerodyn (member of the RAWI). Then an overview is given of different drivetrain concepts in wind turbines. Both different bearing concepts as well as different gearbox- and generator concepts are presented and the pros and cons are highlighted.

Name of the company:    aerodyn Energiesysteme GmbH

Location of the company:    Provianthausstr. 9, 24768 Rendsburg, Germany

Founded: 1983

Object of the company:    Engineering office for the development and design of wind turbines

To date, aerodyn specialists have made a great contribution to the development of many turbines options and, together with partners, have successfully implemented a number of complex projects. The innovative developments of aerodyn have significantly influenced the current level of technological development. Today, turbines designed by aerodyn reliably generate electricity on all five continents without harming the environment. The development of components or complex installations was carried out for many manufacturers, calculations were made and documents necessary for certification were prepared. At the same time, turbines with a capacity of 5 to 6500 kW were created according to various concepts.
