Variable Speed Gearboxes

Hydrodynamic Variable Speed Gearbox WinDrive

Wind turbines with Voith WinDrive technology uniquely and reliably produce clean electricity.

What is special about WinDrive technology:

  • A standard synchronous generator directly connected to the grid produces electricity in a grid-friendly manner and with power plant quality.
  • There is no frequency converter in the wind turbine as WinDrive replaces the power electronics that are prone to interference. 

The WinDrive has proven itself to be sturdy and reliable after years of operation even under extreme conditions. Power of 2 to 20 MW are possible both on and offshore.
