Parker Hannifin, a manufacturer of motion and control technologies, has been awarded a $1 million grant from the Ohio Third Frontier Advanced Energy Program for the commercialization of a hydraulic system developed by Parker for use in wind turbines.

The Parker hydraulic system uses components in wind turbines to convert wind energy into electricity to improve their overall energy-generating capacity and reliability and to reduce maintenance expenses over their service lives, according to the company.

According to the company, Parker is working in partnership with the state of Ohio to accelerate the development and growth of the state's advanced energy initiatives, which include the delivery of reliable, efficient and cost-effective wind energy.

The Parker-led project team combines Parker personnel with wind industry experts, potential customers and end users of these technologies. Project collaborators include the Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network, the Cleveland Foundation, North Coast Wind & Power, Wintec Energy Ltd., the Great Lakes Wind Network and the LNE Group.
