Simplicity and efficiency. The anatomy of a LEITWIND wind turbine:
The LEITWIND-patented direct drive is the core of the entire system. The connection between the hub and the generator eliminates the gearbox, an essential part of traditional wind turbines. The system reduces the number of rotating parts, rotation speed, and friction. This solution increases reliability while reducing wear and maintenance costs. In its 20-year lifespan, a LEITWIND generator performs the same number of rotations that traditional ones perform in a few months. Reducing the number of rotating parts and, thus, friction results in higher efficiency. Therefore, LEITWIND wind turbines are also suitable for less windy areas.
