At the international wind energy fair China Windpower in Beijing, Liebherr Components signed a cooperation agreement with the country’s leading wind turbine OEM Mingyang Smart Energy.
Under this serial manufacturing contract, Liebherr will supply the customer with significant quantities of main bearings. This will further secure Mingyang Smart Energy’s long-term business success in the Chinese market. “Both sides are aiming for even more intensive cooperation in the field of onshore and offshore wind power,” explained Stephan Lausmann, Head of Sales Wind Energy at Liebherr Components.
Liebherr main bearings can be used in wind turbines of 2 MW and more. The continuously rotating bearings are optimized in terms of longevity and can, therefore, withstand particularly high permanent loads. Liebherr’s customers benefit from its application experience of nearly 30 years in the field of wind energy and can rely on the “Made in Germany” quality it offers.
