Yaw brakes

KTR-STOP® brake systems display their full strength as Yaw Brakes for aligning and locking the turbine in the wind. The permanent change between »STOP and GO« requests for particularly low-wear components with gigantic locking pressure of up to 542 kN per brake in order to protect the turbine against wind gust and dynamic load permanently. On large turbines above one megawatt, up to twelve active disc brake calipers having such power are used.
