Rollix has developed pitch and yaw bearings for the new Alstom Haliade 150-6MW offshore wind turbine. Within the framework of a strategic partnership, Alstom and Rollix have developed the slewing ring bearings for both the blades and the nacelle of the turbines.
Rollix's engineers collaborated closely with the Alstom team to design the slewing ring bearings. The pitch and yaw bearings of almost 4 metres in diameter were then assembled on the wind turbine itself in Saint-Nazaire, a French Atlantic port located close to the Rollix plant (in the Pays de la Loire region of western France).
