Wind turbines are sophisticated machines, operating in demanding environments.

As such, it is very important to select the right lubricant, as the proper oil choice can improve wind turbine availability - by cutting overheads to extend oil drain intervals; reducing scheduled/unscheduled turbine downtime; as well as minimising the resulting maintenance and labour expenditure.

This technical download focuses on the challenges in wind turbine lubrication, specifically addressing the use of an advanced synthetic gear oil (in this case Mobilgear SHC XMP 320), in the main wind turbine gearbox.
