Spider, a division of SafeWorks, recently designed, manufactured and rigged its largest 360° Blade Access Platform (BAP) to date.
 
The customer, Alstom, required access to the blades of its 3.0MW prototype turbine at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder, CO to conduct R&D on a new power performance improvement package. The scope of work required the platform to pass the max chord on the blades and have access to the blades’ root. Additionally, Spider technicians surveyed the turbine to develop a rigging plan that allowed the use of a four hoist platform by routing the rigging slings over the blades in a bunny ear position. With Spider on site daily to handle the rigging needs and provide immediate support throughout the 3-week project, Alstom’s blade technicians were able to focus on their scope of work.
