Yaw control

Yaw control

Yaw is the angle of rotation of the nacelle around its vertical axis. Efficient yaw control is essential to ensure that wind turbines always face directly into the wind. 

Bonfiglioli gearboxes align the nacelle accurately with the direction of the wind. Despite their compact dimensions and low weight, these gearboxes are extremely robust and play a fundamental role in the exploitation of wind energy around the world.

The products developed, produced and distributed by Bonfiglioli cover a wide and still growing range of applications. Bonfiglioli’s Wind Business Unit develops products in close collaboration with the world’s top turbine constructors and designers, and supplies complete solutions for continuous pitch and yaw control and for energy optimisation. 

Our latest yaw and pitch control components are the result of ongoing research into new technical solutions and are made from the latest, most suitable materials.
