We’re delighted to share this interview between Kenneth Carter, Editor of Wind Systems Magazine, and Dellner Brakes’ CEO Marcus Aberg.
“What we offer is a complete braking system,” said Mr Aberg. “That could be a yaw brake or a sliding bearing for the yaw brake, a rotor brake that slows and stops the rotor or a rotor lock that fixes the hub in place – right through to hydraulic power units and advanced friction materials, in line with our full system approach.
“It’s a hard task, but our ultimate goal is to be part of the wind industry and not just be ‘the brake people’. We would like to understand as much as possible about the full turbine, how it works and how it’s manufactured. If we can understand the turbine better, then we are in a much better position to develop the right braking system for our customers.”
