Technical article: Schaeffler discusses role of bearings within renewable energy industry

‘Bearings and simulation software key to future renewable energy systems’

This technical article from Schaeffler, entitled ‘Bearings and simulation software key to future renewable energy systems’, discusses the applications of roller, single and spherical bearings within the renewable energy industry, as well as software such as simulation tools and roller bearing calculation programmes.

In the future, wind, wave and tidal energy systems will be the most likely renewable sources to be used by the UK.

6,000 wind turbines alone are predicted to be installed in the UK by 2020 if energy targets are to be met.

Schaeffler’s technical article covers the application and advantages of a number of types of bearings, as well as software, within the renewable energy sector.
