Wind Pitch Motors
GE manufactures durable wind pitch motors for the most challenging environments including high vibration, extreme temperatures and high humidity. Because they are located high up in the turbine housing, maintenance intervals tend to be very long requiring a robust and reliable construction.
GE provides custom DC motor designs for wind pitch blade positioning. Our designs are evolved from the industrial lift truck market and have been adapted for use in wind turbines. We have been building DC pitch motors since 2006 and have over 30,000 motors in service.
