Offshore Wind Energy

The Drive to New Technology Brings New Challenges

Wind power is an increasingly important source of electricity and in remote ocean and salt spray environments where operational performance measured in MTTR and MTBF is essential. The selection of materials with corrosion resistance and longevity is vitally important. Industry-wide, as operational maintenance costs and lifecycle requirements increase, the dependability and durability of components are essential. Our materials are tailored to provide unique solutions for electrical and mechanical components in wind turbines.

APPLICATION SPOTLIGHT

Offshore Wind Energy

20201020-CT_2.5-Energy_Turbine-Drive-Shaft_F
Drive Shaft

Transmitting mechanical power from the turbine blades to the generator, drive shafts are mission critical and must handle transient loads during startup, shutdown, emergency stops, and grid connections.

20201019-CT_2.5.4-Energy-Alternative-Energy_Gear-Boxes_F
Gearboxes

Gearbox components require high strength and damage tolerance with high surface hardness to transmit mechanical power and torque loads from turbine blades to the generator for grid synchronization.

Bearings
Bearings

Critical components support rotating equipment and must carry thrust loads created by blade drag. Materials used require high surface hardness, core strength, and core toughness, with corrosion, cracking, and galling resistance.

Generators
Generators

The high costs of installation and maintenance required for offshore wind turbines necessitate maximized power output from each unit. Our soft magnetic alloy portfolio features high permeability and saturation combined with low coercivity to enable more efficient power generation leading to increased revenue per unit.

Transformers
Transformers

Offshore turbines use transformers to step up voltage for intermediate transmission and inland substations further increase voltage for long-range transmission. Efficient soft magnetic alloy solutions minimize energy loss during long-range power transmission.

Gears

Yaw control and blade pitch gears are mission-critical components that require high-strength material solutions to transmit torque loads.

Subsea Umbilical Cables
Subsea Umbilical Cables

To transmit power from turbines to offshore substations and further onshore, conductors and fibers must be encased in strong metal tubing with corrosion resistance.
