Direct drive generators

In a direct drive application the turbine and the generator are integrated to form a compact and structurally integrated unit. The design gives free access to all parts for easy installation and maintenance. The simple and robust low speed rotor design with no separate excitation or cooling system results in minimum wear, reduced maintenance requirements, lower life cycle costs, and a long lifetime.

Benefits:

  • high efficiency
  • simple and robust
  • lowest maintenance demand
  • maximum reliability
