  • 1. EnergyIn-Depth Report Series Lubricants for Wind Turbines 2011: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities Published January 2012 Base Year: 2011 Regional Coverage Lubricants for Wind Turbines 2011: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities is part of a series of new reports offered by Kline focusing on the wind energy industry. China India Wind turbines experience large and rapidly changing loads depending on the wind conditions. Gear boxes are typically installed 100 meters above ground and have very steep gear ratios. Depending Germany on the area of installation, operating conditions include moisture and airborne dust. Newer wind Spain turbine installations have automatic shutdown and startup to protect migratory birds. Lubricant performance thus is a critical element of a wind turbine installation. This criticality is enhanced United States due to the conflicting demands of long drain interval (due to remoteness of installations and Rest of World Onshore difficulty of access) and the need for optimal performance over lubricant life (due to the high costs associated with equipment failure). As a result, wind turbine lubricants have received a lot Global Offshore of attention from industry participants.
