40th Anniversary of the first wind gearbox delivery

September 2021

Anyone who claims to be a technology leader also has an obligation to take responsibility. We have assumed this responsibility for many years now and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first delivered wind gearbox.

In 1981 we started with the first wind gearbox in low KW power range. Ten years later, we equipped the first offshore wind park Vindeby with 450kW gearboxes. In 2016, we successfully developed the world's largest 8MW gearbox offshore system at that time. Now we are designing gearboxes, generators and powertrains up to 20 MW and planning beyond to support our customers today and in the future.
