Rotor Locks | Svendborg Brakes

Svendborg Brakes rotor locks are used in the wind turbine industry and are typically mounted to the turbine´s main rotor shaft, between gearbox and generator. A rotor brake is primarily intended for use as a safety holding device during emergency stops under high wind conditions. The rotor lock is activated by running the lock bolt into the lock disc using hydraulic power; a “locked” signal is then transmitted to the control system.

All Svendborg rotor lock units are engineered to handle the large output torque generated by the high ratios found in wind turbine gearboxes.
