Lagerwey Climbing Crane testLagerwey is currently testing its climbing crane for the installation of wind turbines in the Eemshaven the Netherlands. After testing on the ground, it is now time to test the climbing and hoisting abilities of the crane in practice.

The so-called Climbing Crane builds the wind turbine tower and then uses the tower to climb upwards. Thus, the crane builds up and climbs independently. The test will take several weeks. In October, Lagerwey will use the Climbing Crane for the construction of the second L136 wind turbine in Dutch Eemshaven.
