The article offers information on the offshore wind power generating system with a hydraulic drive train, developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI), a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe Ltd. (MPSE). It states that the wind turbines use mechanical speed-up gearboxes to match the input rotor to a high-speed generator. It mentions several components of wind applications including material stress, ring camera motor, and power density.
