LiftWerx has partnered with Siemens Gamesa to develop an up-tower lifting device. Rated at a lifting capacity of 75 tonnes, the RotorHook is designed to lower and lift a fully-assembled wind turbine rotor and main shaft, eliminating the need to utilise a large conventional crane on the ground.
The crane will be launched in Q2 2019 and can be mobilised to a site in three standard ISO containers. The design and production of the RotorHook will be performed by the Kenz-Figee Group, in close co-operation with Eager.One for specialised engineering. LiftWerx, Eager.One, and Kenz-Figee are subsidiaries of the Meemaken Group.
