3RR—tomorrow’s wind energy technology
Laulagun Bearings’ three-row roller (3RR) technology enables onshore wind turbine manufacturers to keep hub dimensions at sizes that can be transported by road. The company focused on scale-up in 2020, then validated the technology on test benches in 2021. It is now making its first deliveries, shipping equipment from its plant in the Basque country as well as the new facility in India. Roller technology clearly has a role to play in the future of wind energy, including offshore facilities.
