LiftWerx is pleased to announce the development of its next generation RotorHook™ crane. This powerful up-tower crane will be used to perform large corrective repairs on General Electric onshore wind turbines.

This advanced crane offers greater capabilities than any other up-tower crane in the market, with the ability to exchange complete assembled drivetrains. These types of exchanges have not previously been possible with existing up-tower crane technology.

This next-generation RotorHook™ device can be mounted in a wide variety of configurations, and has the ability to perform the following large corrective repairs:

– Fixed-rotor gearbox exchanges
– Rotor drops
– Main bearing / main shaft exchanges
– Full drivetrain exchanges
– Blade exchanges
– Pitch bearing exchanges
– Generator exchanges
– Up-tower gearbox repairs
– Yaw drive exchanges
– Repower projects

This crane can do the same lifting work as a 600-tonne crawler crane, but it is around ten times smaller. The entire crane system is transported in three ISO containers, with legal dimensions and weights.
