    Load Application System for Main Bearing test bench

    CLIENT: Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy A/S

    SERVICES: Design, Construction, Commissioning

    YEAR: 2018-2019

    COUNTRY: Denmark

    The Load Application System for Wind Turbine Main Bearing test bench consists of compact and robust mechanisms with high load capacity above 35,000 kNm of bending moment in any direction.
    The limited space for the large hydraulic actuators is solved by an optimized design and neat shape of mechanical components, avoiding any interference or collision, as well as the demanding service life requirements specially for the rotating elements.
    Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy entrusted IDOM with the design and turnkey supply of the Load Application System, including the assembly and commissioning of the mechanisms, Hydraulic System and Control and Safety systems.
    The solution designed for the mechanisms decouples radial and axial loads, tailored for the application, resulting in a cost-effective product. In addition, a specific test mode for impact simulation is developed for this Load Application System, with dynamic outstanding capacity of 11,000 kN of radial load applied in 1.5 seconds.
