Sustainable energy – moved safely Damping and vibration isolation for renewable energy

The capacity of renewable energy production as a cost-effective, sustainable source of power is growing around the world.

How can sun and wind power be used optimally, thereby minimizing wear of technological components and unplanned downtime? With Stabilus Group motion control solutions, ecology and economy go hand in hand.

Solar farms: protecting trackers, increasing longevity

The closer the photovoltaic power station operates to the equator, the greater the return – but also the greater the influence of the sun’s travel. That’s why solar trackers made by various manufacturers are part of the equipment of these systems, keeping the solar panels oriented at the proper angle to the sun at all times. Damping technology from the Stabilus Group protects the mechanisms of the solar tracker and prevents the wind from completely lifting the system up into the air. This provides effective protection for this technology, which is designed to operate for many years.

Wind power systems: securing panels, isolating vibrations

There are many different panels installed in wind power systems, including exit doors, hatches, and maintenance panels in machine housings. The broad portfolio of the Stabilus Group contains specialized dampers that prevent a panel from traveling and hitting the worker when the panel is opened downward. When the panel is opened upward, gas springs provide force assistance. 

Solutions from our expert brand Fabreeka also help minimize the effects of vibrations in such a large rotating machine.
