Analyzing the Global Market for Wind Turbine Gearboxes

Analyzing the Global Market for Wind Turbine Gearboxes

A gearbox is one of the costliest part of the wind turbine, accounting for almost 15% of the overall cost of the wind turbine. Responsible for connecting the blades to the wind turbine, thus generating electricity by combining with a generator, a gearbox is a very important part of the wind turbine.

Bosch Rexroth, ZF Wind Power Antwerpen, Moventas, Renk AG, Northern Power Systems, etc., are some of the leading players in the global market for wind turbine gearboxes.
