For over 25 years, Schaeffler engineers have been developing precision bearing solutions and condition monitoring systems for the renewable energy sector.
Our wealth of knowledge and technical expertise in rolling and plain bearings, lubrication, condition monitoring, and special coatings and materials for corrosion protection, is available from the concept stage through to commissioning.
Schaeffler engineers are committed to providing developers and manufacturers of wave and tidal stream systems with the optimum bearing performance solution for their application. Using our own state-of-the-art bearing calculation software, we are able to simulate bearing operating conditions to provide reliable, cost-efficient bearing designs to meet highly demanding environmental requirements.
Schaeffler remains a family-owned concern, employing over 76,000 people worldwide and generating global sales in excess of €10.7 billion (in 2011). More than 6000 staff worldwide are directly involved in research and development, with their efforts resulting in over 1600 annual patent registrations.
