Bearing solutions for tracking systems

Solar Power Plants


The tracking systems of solar power plants must fulfill seemingly contradictory requirements in order to facilitate the maximum efficiency and high cost-effectiveness of the plant, since they must be

  • robust, compact, and weatherproof even during extreme temperature fluctuations, dust and wind as well as
  • reliable and resistant to wear.

Rolling and plain bearings from the INA, FAG, and INA brands come into play irrespective of whether the power plant is photovoltaic or uses solar thermal technology, or if a single or double-axis tracking system is involved. These bearings have high rigidity, high load carrying capacity and low friction and operate reliably even under extreme operating conditions.
