Lubricant technology plays a vital role in keeping today’s wind turbines running reliably and efficiently.
Castrol has more than 30 years’ experience of supporting the wind energy industry with world-class lubricants and product support services. We supply lubricants to thousands of wind turbines. Our parent company, BP, is one of the largest wind park owners in the U.S. with a gross generating capacity of around 2,600 MW – enough electricity to power over 775,000 average American homes. From this platform we can evaluate the effectiveness of our products and services which are geared towards meeting the demands of modern technology.
Based on our own experience, and from working closely with Operations and Maintenance managers, we understand the importance of increasing the efficiency of assets, maximising uptime and reducing downtime. Given the extreme challenges that wind turbines face, the right lubrication choices can help extend wind uptime and keep equipment performing effectively throughout its life.
