NKE Bearings Showcases Its Value Proposal for Wind Energy Applications at Wind Europe 2024

 

The company will be exhibiting at WIND EUROPE 2024, to be held from March 20th to the 22nd in Bilbao, Spain. There NKE will exhibit its specialized products for wind turbine applications, such as its special bearings for generators, gearboxes and main shafts.

Global warming represents one of the greatest threats to contemporary society and, against this backdrop, in recent years we have witnessed a growing commitment on the part of the European business community to promote the use of sustainable energy alternatives.

In this context, wind energy emerges as an optimal option, offering not only a renewable and clean energy source, but also opportunities to mitigate the impacts of climate change and promote the transition to a more sustainable future.

For this reason, NKE has become aware of the needs presented by the wind energy sector and, consequently, has strived to establish itself as a leading company in the sustainable manufacturing of high-performance bearings for wind turbine applications.

NKE’s value proposition for Wind Europe 2024

Wind turbine maintenance can present major challenges. Therefore, gearbox bearings must be exceptionally reliable in order to avoid potential malfunctions. NKE solutions are designed for mounting in turbines with power ratings ranging from 100 kilowatts to several megawatts.

Insulation in these devices is crucial, which is why NKE will be presenting its black oxide-coated bearings at the show. This special treatment provides a protective coating on the functional surfaces of the application. Among other advantages, bearings with black oxide finish offer superior rolling and wear characteristics. Also, for extremely demanding applications, NKE has a wide range of different materials and heat treatments that optimize bearing performance.

Wind turbine generators are also essential elements within the wind turbine architecture and, in these cases, must operate under extremely difficult conditions. In today’s applications, bearings must frequently withstand problems caused by electrical currents or discharges. NKE will also present its range of bearings with insulating coatings and hybrid bearings, which reduce friction and operating temperature, improving overall conditions and thus extending the service life of the lubricant and the bearing itself. All of them have been designed to withstand the demands and various operating conditions expected by customers.

From March 20th to the 22nd, NKE Bearings will participate in the Wind Europe 2024 exhibition in Bilbao, Spain, showcasing its value proposition for wind energy and the brand’s innovation in bearing technology and customized solutions for the industry.
