Wind power

Our developments for wind power are pioneering.

A diversified industrial corporation with great engineering skill, thyssenkrupp supplies innovative products, processes and solutions to meet increasing international energy demand. For example, our large-diameter bearings are state of the art for use in power generation by wind power plants. Nine out of ten wind turbine manufacturers already rely on our components. With our unequalled expertise we can adjust our components to match on-site circumstances exactly, a crucial advantage when considering the extreme conditions in the offshore sector. Dialog with our customers is particularly important to us. In close cooperation with our customers, we address challenges, find answers to questions regarding the environment and climate protection, and bring our customers competitive advantages with respect to the increasing prices of raw materials.

Wind Branche

In the area of seamless rolled rings made of steel and non-ferrous metals, thyssenkrupp maintains a leading market position. Our rings are an important component in many diverse application areas. They are used in large-diameter bearings, high-power gears, large valves, production plants, gear rings, wind power plants and pipe construction. The markets of the future include oil and gas as well as aviation and aerospace.


Large-diameter bearings are machine elements that absorb all of the axial and radial forces and the resulting tilting moment in a single, self-retaining bearing unit. Large-diameter bearings are important construction and connecting elements in wind power plants, cranes, excavators, mechanical engineering equipment and tunneling machines, among others.
