VIKING Yaw Drive Unit

A solution for the yaw motion of the nacelle. The design combines a friction bearing with active brakes and possibility for integrated propulsion.

The project was initiated by VIKING and is now taken over by Svendborg Brakes in cooperation with Højteknologifonden, DTU and Kirkholm Maskiningeniører A/S.
