Bearings for wind turbine upgrade

06 December 2023

BEARINGS & Drives has taken delivery of the first batch of bearings from CeramicSpeed that are destined to be retro fitted into fan motors in wind turbines.

The contract is part of a collaboration between Bearings & Drives, Creadis Wind Solutions, CeramicSpeed and rewind and mechanical repair company Fletcher Moorland.

Motors that require repairing by Creadis Wind Solutions, a leading engineering service provider in the wind energy sector, will now be fitted with CeramicSpeed bearings, and supplied by Bearings & Drives, with a special high temperature cage and high temperature grease to complement the ceramic rolling elements.     

Steve Bacon, Bearings & Drives sales director comments: "There is in excess of 1500 wind turbines around the UK coast and we are excited by the potential of this contract. This contract will provide wide exposure and reach, offering a tangible example of the products in action, and showcasing the benefits of CeramicSpeed bearings, over and above more traditional products.”

CeramicSpeed Insulate ball bearings are custom-made for electrical motors and a guarantee against damage caused by stray currents.
