Romax Technology has launched a new ‘medium speed’ drive-train design for the next generation of onshore and offshore wind turbines ranging from 3 to 10MW capacity.

The Romax Butterfly platform for drive-train design looks set to outperform the latest medium speed designs and has been developed using Romax’s ‘Cost of Energy’ modelling tools. The drive-train platform covers all elements of the drive-train, is designed to exceed GL2010 and IEC 61400 requirements, and offers a number of flexible design options. A key feature of the Butterfly platform is that the gearbox and generator are semi-integrated, which shortens the drive-train and eliminates issues such as poor alignment between the two components. The fundamental Butterfly drive-train platform design architecture is the same from 3MW to 10MW, which facilitates the development of a consistent drive-train sourcing, manufacture, operating and maintenance strategy across a wide turbine product range.
