Noise and tonality: crucial as onshore goes large

How can powertrain technologies help to unlock onshore areas and raise social acceptance of wind power? Originating in the field of combustion engines, Geislinger successfully entered the wind power market in 2016 with its COMPOWIND® coupling. The robust and durable low-speed shaft coupling (LSSC), made of advanced composites, absorbs virtually all bending moments, or parasitic gearbox loads, and allows the gearbox to be rigidly attached to the main frame. 

This is not only important to increase drivetrain reliability and avoid costly gearbox replacements, but also to enable reliable, highly integrated medium-speed drivetrains.
