Success Stories – Brake retrofit Owenreagh

 

Background

ICP were approached by the operator of Owenreagh Wind Farm in Strabane area (Northern Ireland) through their maintenance company Optinergy Ltd in regard to improving the safety and reliability of the rotor braking systems on ten Zond Z-40 550kW wind turbines at the site.

The issue was that due to the original gearbox design, the end-float of the driveshaft was such that this caused problems with the original multi-disc type brake friction rubbing and causing heating of the brake and shaft. Ultimately, this resulted in the brakes on several machines being backed off, leaving the machines with only aerodynamic braking. This caused problems during maintenance, when it was sometimes very difficult to safely engage the rotor lock toothed segment, and a solution was sought to improve safety and comply with current legislation, yet involve no major re-engineering of the current drive layout.

Solution

Following consultation and several site visits to evaluate the situation and careful measuring up, ICP proposed a very compact solution with their SHI-107- FC “floating caliper” arrangement manufactured by Sibre (Germany). There were several installation issues to overcome (not least a lack of OEM drawings for these vintage machines) including avoidance of several local foul points, supply of a brake disc and hub to perfectly match the original USA-spec splined shaft, and provision for an existing high pressure oil feed through the brake shaft whilst retaining the splined hub effectively, all of which were overcome successfully.

The new brakes are mounted to a custom-designed mounting frame with very robust floating pins, allowing the brake calipers to follow the movement of the disc by as much as 16mm, thereby avoiding the constant rubbing and heat generation of the earlier system. Coupled with the patented Sibre design, these calipers are virtually leak-proof in operation, and the operators look forward to many years trouble-free operation, with the friction material also being upgraded to the latest sintered-ceramic friction material for maximum longevity and high temperature capability.
