Carbon brushes for transmission and control of wind turbines
Renewable energies are becoming increasingly important in global energy generation. Among them, wind energy is the fastest growing form of renewable energy: huge wind farms are being built in both the onshore and offshore sectors.
Carbon brushes are very important functional elements of wind turbines. They are used as electrical contacts for power transmission. Brushes from SGL Carbon are suitable for various wind turbines, climatic conditions, and all carbon brush-based applications, and they are available for a wide range of applications. Our expertise in materials and applications makes us a sought-after partner in the wind energy industry. Contact us!
In addition, we offer worldwide delivery from Europe/Spain with fast shipping connections and worldwide customer service in multiple languages, including English and Spanish.
