Vibration control makes wind farms quieter

Vibration control makes wind farms quieter

With a new brochure created especially for the wind energy sector, ContiTech, based in Hanover, Germany, is strengthening its involvement in the renewable energies market by offering vibration control for wind turbines.

“Obtaining environmentally friendly power from the forces of nature is one of the key challenges of our time. ContiTech Vibration Control is contributing towards meeting this challenge by supplying mounts for wind energy installations,” explains Thomas Knickelmann, wind energy sector manager at ContiTech Vibration Control.

In a wind turbine, these mounts can absorb harmful vibrations to protect the nacelle cover, generator, and transmission system. This increases the service life of a turbine and makes it quieter.

The aim of the brochure is to provide the wind energy sector with targeted and concise information about effective use of the company’s rubber and plastic anti-vibration products. The six-page bulletin uses examples to illustrate how even complex mounting tasks can be efficiently and reliably dealt with in this specific industry.

The brochure is available in both German and English. It can be ordered free of charge at ContiTech's web site (order number WT 5994_d or WT 5994_e).
