:: Direct Drive
Northern Power Systems direct drive gearless technology delivers real energy solutions directly to your community, utility, or specific application through our technologically advanced wind turbine. Our gearless, direct drive train is at the heart of Northern Power’s leading edge “less is more” wind turbine design focus.
Our turbine’s generator and rotor are directly coupled and move together at the same speed. By eliminating the gearbox feature, we have simplified the drivetrain design by radically reducing the number of moving parts and wear items. This gearless design advancement creates direct benefits for our customers in the form of a higher-reliability turbine with lower operating costs.
