T-Solid – Blade Bearings of the Future
Reducing levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) is increasingly in focus. One approach is to enlarge turbine dimensions massively: Higher towers and longer rotors ensure maximum energy but require alternative bearing designs capable of meeting enhanced structural strength and reliability, and extended bearing life combined demands.
IMO became the world’s first supplier offering an alternative for common 4-point contact blade bearing solutions, specifically focused at large-scale onshore and offshore wind.
Used with large rotors and hub heights beyond the performance limits of conventional 2-row 4-point contact ball pitch bearings
Used in low-wind onshore and large offshore turbines from 2 to 10+ MW operating with load based individual pitch control (IPC) or high collective pitching activity
