Posted on Jun 18 2018 | Under News | 0 Comments
Do you require crane services for GE 1.5SLE, GE 1.5XLE, and GE 1.X wind turbines? LiftWerx is pleased to announce that it has expanded its up-tower crane fleet to perform the following corrective repairs on these common General Electric turbine models:
– Roof removal
– Up-tower gearbox repairs (such as IMS exchanges)
– Yaw drive exchanges
These services are performed with LiftWerx’s tiny #HeliHook™ cranes, which are small enough to be mobilized with a pickup truck. For these types of standard corrective repairs, these cranes can do the same job as a 300-ton telescopic crane, but they have a much lower mobilization cost. Heli-Hook™ cranes can also be mounted on Siemens 2.3MW turbines. Over the next year, LiftWerx will be expanding its abilities to mount these cranes on Vestas and Senvion wind turbines as well.
