Wind Energy

For a wind farm, only the best lubrication system is good enough. Lubrication must be effective and consistent to ensure that the wind turbine does not go into safety mode: this can be very costly. Our BEKAWIND systems meet these extensive demands and are customized with all the necessary components for the successful greasing of wind turbines.

In a wind turbine the yaw bearing, generator, pitch bearing raceways, open gears and main bearing have to be lubricated automatically.

A central lubrication system continuously supplies fresh lubricant to the connected lubrication points. The right quantity to the right time. Especially for hardly accessible plants - like in offshore use - a steady and reliable lubricant supply can only be realized with an automatic lubrication system.

User-friendly and tailored to the specific industry.
Improved productivity, resistant against dust, dirt and environmental influences.
Grease spreads better across the surface because lubrication takes place while the moving parts are in operation

Recommended systems

The following Groeneveld-BEKA automatic lubrication systems are highly suitable for use in the Wind Energy.

  • Groeneveld Twin

    • Grease output and grease delivery independently of ambient temperature and grease viscosity
    • Thanks to the relatively low work pressure, the quality of the grease is preserved
    • Modern pump with real-time clock, memory, CAN-Bus connection and follower plate
    • High quality metering units and distribution blocks
    • Standard with external display
    • The filling coupling with filter prevents contamination during filling
    • Easily extended to grippers, excavation buckets and other equipment pieces through quick couplers
    • Suitable for biodegradable grease


    The PICO pump is the worldwide unique combination of progressive- and multi line technology. The basic version contains the PICO pump with a progressive distributor that supplies lubricant to the lube points.


    • Electric piston pump with level switch and agitator.
    • Also available with a follower piston for the installation in the rotor hub.
    • Pump element with desmodromic actuation for reliable performance.
    • Single-line distributor with piston control without rubber parts and with high reset force of the metering piston - high permissible system pressure and high operational reliability even with long lines and at low temperatures.

    • Electric piston pump with level switch and agitator.
    • Pump element with desmodromic actuation for reliable performance.
    • Progressive distributor system for high operational reliability even with long lines and low temperatures.


    The BEKAONE is specially designed for situations where an automatic lubrication system is too large or too complex. BEKAONE single point lubricators are an ideal solution to supply lubricants to individual greasing points in a safe, precise and reliable way.

  • What is lubrication?

    The application of a film of grease between moving parts in a machine or vehicle. The film of grease prevents any metallic contact between moving parts, like pins and bushings, bearings and steering knuckles. It also stops dirt, water and dust entering the lubrication point and prevents corrosion. Inadequate lubrication causes wear and tear, machine and vehicle failure and increases costs.

  • What is grease?

    Grease is a thickened oil and always consists of two different components: oil and a thickener. The oil is the actual lubricant, while the thickener ensures that the oil remains in place.

  • What does automatic lubrication involve?

    Automatic lubrication involves pumping the grease from the reservoir of the lubrication system to the lubrication points. The quantity of grease per lubrication point and the interval can both be set in advance.

  • Which types of automatic lubrication systems are there?

    Progressive systems. All lubrication points are consecutively lubricated with the predetermined amount of grease. Parallel systems. All lubrication points are administered the predetermined amount of grease at the same time.

  • For which situations is an automatic lubrication system suitable?

    For all situations in which moving parts need to be separated from each other by means of a film of grease. Groeneveld lubrication systems are most frequently used for wheel loaders, excavators, trucks, trailers, buses, port equipment, mining machines, forestry equipment and agricultural equipment.
