Sorry, don't really get what you are on.
All majour wind turnine companies are moving away from gear boxes and away from permanent magnets.
And your post here is pretty unclear what you WANT TO SAY and what is a quote from a web site.
The link you quoted clearly says: 'Wind turbines shed their gears' ... so what is your point?
First paragraph of your link: Wind turbine manufacturers are turning away from the industry-standard gearboxes and generators in a bid to boost the reliability and reduce the cost of wind power.
The following paragraphs clearly state that Siemens and GE are moving away from gear boxes toward 'direct drives'.
Further down you can read that the rotor now has the permanent magnets as opposed in older designs where the stator had them. Hence the amount of permanent magnets got reduced.
In future I hope you would argue a bit more in a: "REASON therefore EFECT" sense, as I'm pretty tired to figure the sense of your incoherent posts.
Random cut/pastes makes no argument ... hint: the page you linked (and I believe I linked it on /. a few days before myself) is from 2010, we have 2014 now.
So, what exactly do you want to claim? GE and Siemens put more gear boxes into turbines? No they don't!
GE and Siemens need more Neobdynum (which is not rare, so what would be the point claiming it? And what would be the point if it was true? Or if it was wrong? Is see none ... !) into their turbines? No they don't!
Any more claims I missed?
