Vestas Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Vestas Wind Systems, has invested in the Salamander quick lift crane technology. With the investment Vestas becomes the minority investor in Swedish S&L Access Systems, a subsidiary of Stena AB.
S&L Access Systems has developed the Salamander quick lift crane technology featuring a new top crane technology enabling heavy lifts on hub heights well beyond 200 metres. The moveable platforms are less wind sensitive when conducting uptower works, and the crane requires a smaller pad. The Salamander Quick Lift Crane Technology can be used for both installation and maintenance of legacy, current and future turbines.
