Wind turbines are complex, high-maintenance structures that are subject to erosion due to extreme temperatures. This affects their performance and increases the risk of system breakdowns, which means that preventive maintenance can help to reduce costs.
INNOVATIVE CORNER FRAMES
Thanks to their modular design, the configuration of our platforms can easily be adjusted, without using any nuts or bolts. With platform modules of different lengths and corner frames of 45 or 90 degrees, the platform can be made to fit around rotor blades of different sizes.
For work to be done safely, it is important to use a hoist that is up to the task. The XSClimber has a working load limit of 1100 lbs. and comes with a number of safety features, including an integrated overload detector, lifting and lowering function to prevent tilting and space for different types of secondary brakes.
A Temporary Suspended Platform is an easy and cost-effective solution to get access to wind turbines for maintenance work. Unlike a crane, the entire system fits in the back of a van. Also, a suspended platform solution offers users a safer and more efficient working environment than rope access.
Being extremely easy to transport and to set up, our modular Suspended Platform System is very suitable for frequent and cost-effective maintenance to wind turbines.
