20 years of application expertise

A successful track record

Since the dawn of wind turbine installations with active Pitch control, KEBA has been supporting renowned wind turbine manufacturers in advancing and optimizing their systems. KEBA started early on to adapt the standard drive technology to the rugged environment, and to tailor new developments to this type of application. Today, the Pitch drives include a multitude of application-specific hardware and software features specially made for reliable Pitch control in onshore and offshore wind energy.

Functional safety reduces material input

In addition to compliance with the relevant guidelines defined by Germanischer Lloyd and TÜV-certified safety, KEBA offers a wide variety of safety features with design benefits for your wind turbine installation.

Your benefits:

  • Emergency pitching profiles with specific driving torque and braking torque values help reduce extreme loads on the wind turbine and thus lower the costs for materials significantly.
