Solar energy – slewing bearings and slew drives for photovoltaic systems and solar power plants
Extreme heat, violent sandstorms, and sharp changes in temperature and humidity - the solar plants must be able to withstand the prevailing climate. The use of robust components is essential to ensure smooth operation.
thyssenkrupp rothe erde offers bearing solutions for solar power units that meet the high demands for protection against corrosion, temperature variations, and precisely controllable, adjustable angles characteristic of this particular field to ensure maximum energy generation.

Our products guarantee that cells in photovoltaic systems are always perfectly directed toward the sun. Our slewing bearings in solar power plants follow this same principle. Here, mirrors are aligned in such a way to combine the sun rays.
Photovoltaic systems and solar power plants concentrate the power of the sun and convert the resulting heat into electrical energy. In view of the devastating effects of climate change and its unchecked progress, the use of the sun as a primary, renewable energy source is indispensable. This is the only way to reduce the use of fossil fuels and ultimately achieve independence from it.
In this way, we support a sustainable and resource-saving supply of energy with our products, from which the environment and climate benefit.
