Tested and Approved Under Extreme Weather

(-40°C to +40°C )

Because of the impacts of cold climate, the wind turbines need to be better equipped to handle winter conditions. Under these extreme temperatures, materials react differently and the components must be reliable. This is why we developed and targeted solutions to improve every form of weather conditions performance.

Therefore, our wind turbine brake pads have been tested in real life situations in extreme weather conditions. The field testing conducted by Innergex Wind Farm on a GE turbine shows that service life expectancy is up to 7.3 years.

 Indeed, Innergex Wind Energy is available for references.

Innergex Wind Energy Guillaume Huet, Operation Manager "KUMA Brakes are a regular supplier in our wind farms and we are very satisfied by the quality and performance of their products." Centre Hydraulique Hydrep inc. Yvon Desjardins, President "Under high temperature conditions during emergency braking, it was found that the KUMA Brakes had a 12% dynamic friction factor change while brake pads from other manufacturers gave higher dynamic friction values. This means the brake load on the rotor disc is subjected to braking loads less than existing brake pad during emergency braking. "
