Simplicity and efficiency. The anatomy of a LEITWIND wind turbine:
The patented LEITWIND direct drive is at the heart of the entire system. The direct connection between the hub and the generator eliminates the gearbox, an essential part of traditional wind turbines. This concept reduces the number of rotating parts, rotation speed and friction. This increases reliability and decreases wear and maintenance costs. The reduction of rotating parts and therefore friction leads to greater efficiency, meaning that LEITWIND wind turbines are also suitable for areas with less wind.
