We supply greases, oils and dry film coatings for wind turbines. Due to the technological advances in the wind power industry, use of the correct lubricant is now more essential than ever to prevent costly down time and repair.
Wind turbines place heavy demands on bearings and gear box components and lubrication is essential.
The wind power industry is also trying to move toward more environmentally friendly lubricants & to place less reliance on fossil fuels.
Wind turbine lubes need to be cost effective thereby allowing wind power to be competitive compared to convention energy sources.
The wind turbine gear box is very complex and the high load placed on the bearings by the blade is a common cause for failure.
IKV have developed innovative products to deliver reliable, cost-effective lubricants to the wind power industry in conjunction with the turbine manufacturers and component suppliers.
At IKV we have particularly focused on:-
• Quality control
• Consistent product performance
• Increased turbine efficiency
• Friction reduction thereby reducing energy loss
• Extension of component life
• Optimum performance
• Continued development & evolution of lubricant to maintain pace with technological advances
