Wind and renewable energy

With increasing global demand for renewable energy and growing awareness when it comes to sustainability, the wind industry market is more dynamic than ever.

This creates a need for innovative and customised solutions that operate onshore and offshore wind turbines efficiently and at the same time contribute to a greener future.

Typical applications

Hoyer electric motors are an integral part of the wind industry and drive essential components in wind turbines. The motors are used in the pitch control systems, where they adjust the angle of the turbine blades for optimal performance in different wind conditions. They are also used in yaw drive systems, where they allow the turbine to rotate and face the wind direction.

Electric motors in the wind industry contribute to the efficient and reliable production of renewable energy and utilise the power of wind to generate electricity on a large scale.

Wind turbine motors: powering renewable energy

Wind turbine motors are pivotal in harnessing renewable energy, playing a crucial role in the global shift towards sustainable power sources. Electric motors, designed for optimal performance and durability, are key to the efficiency and effectiveness of wind turbines.

The role of motors in wind turbine efficiency

The efficiency of wind turbines is heavily dependent on the performance of their motors. The motor's ability to convert wind energy into electrical power effectively is crucial.

Factors such as torque control, speed variability, and energy conversion efficiency directly impact the overall efficiency of the turbine.

Approach to the market

Hoyer's approach to the wind and renewable energy market is defined by a focus on selected niches, especially in hydraulic and cooling applications for on- and offshore wind turbines.

The Hoyer motors for wind turbine applications are designed to meet the challenge of combining customised solutions and product consistency while maintaining a competitive setup with on-time deliveries.

Access to maintenance is often a challenge in the wind industry and our wind turbine motors are therefore resistant to the harsh environments such as high humidity, corrosive salts and ever-changing temperatures. The demands are met by adding special surface treatments and paint systems according to the specified needs and service life in each project.

The motors are mechanical constructed to handle the vibrations present in wind turbines and are furthermore electrical equipped with special windings to handle the demanding grid requirements.

We offer product expertise combined with extensive market insight, and this is supported by a unique supply chain in Europe, Asia and the US.
