Liebherr is taking advantage of the international wind energy trade fair, the AWEA "Windpower 2012 Conference & Exhibition", held from 3 to 6 June 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia (USA), to present, in a display area of more than 70 m² a selection of high performance components for wind turbines. Interested visitors will also be informed about the range of Liebherr gear cutting and shaping machines for producing transmission systems in the wind power sector, as well as the range of cranes for erecting wind turbines.
As a system supplier, Liebherr can provide large diameter bearings as well as drive units and control technology all from one source. The perfect harmonization of the components is demonstrated at Windpower 2012 by a powered rotor blade adjustment system consisting of the Liebherr DAT 300 planetary gear and a double-row Liebherr KUD 128 four-point bearing with internal gear. Different raceway systems and surface coatings will be presented by way of a sectional model of a four-point bearing with external gear.
For decades, earthmoving equipment and cranes from Liebherr have been proving their value in the construction of wind farms. Representative of this series, to be seen at the Windpower exhibition in Atlanta, are models of a LTM 11200-9.1 mobile crane and a LR 1300 crawler crane.
The Liebherr display is in Hall A of the Georgia World Congress Center, booth number 1443.
