Durable energy

Durable energy is a term impossible to neglect in our modern society. Governments increasingly emphasize on the realization of as much green energy as possible for which high subventions are paid out. The production of green energy can be realized in many different ways; by means of windmills, biogas installations, water turbines, solar energy and a lot more to think of.

In windmills and water turbines, motion energy is transferred into a rotation energy to a generator making electrical energy which supplies to the electrical network. The growth in quantity of windmills worldwide is enormous and at this moment in the Netherlands there are 2000 windmills running, producing together more than 5.000.000 MWh. At the production of wind energy a lot of gearboxes and power transmission components are used. By sharing our knowledge in this sector we contribute to an efficient and “silent” production of wind energy.

The amount of biogas installations in the Netherlands is still growing but is way behind compared to our Eastern neighbors. In these kind of installations mostly waste products are used and mixed with other products, in order to produce gas in the fermentation tanks which is used to run big engines in order to be able to supply also electrical energy to the electrical network. Depending on the size of the tanks and the engines to be driven, large power transmission units are needed that can handle large generated power and which have been calculated correctly, because a sufficient lifetime and reliability are a must.
