Always Following the Sun
Bearing solutions for tracking systems
Always following the sun
The energy provided by the sun every day is equivalent to the world's entire annual energy requirements. Faced with the rising pressure of climate change, an increasing number of countries are now turning to solar power as a means of generating electricity.
The objective: Further reducing harmful CO2 emissions.
Solar power plants must be particularly effective in order to achieve the maximum degree of efficiency and to ensure that this technology is marketable without government subsidies in the future. As a development partner and supplier, Schaeffler is currently involved in several projects, for example for parabolic trough, solar tower, Fresnel, and Dish Stirling power plants.
Schaeffler offers a varied range of rolling and plain bearings suitable for the tracking systems of solar power plants. Our solar power plant engineering team has extensive application engineering expertise and optimizes bearing positions and adjacent constructions in conjunction with customers.
