Altitec has delivered the last of an initial batch of five ActSafe ACX powered ascenders to the installation team at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. Technicians will use the lightweight, portable ACX powered ascender for lifting tools and equipment as they install turbines at the south-coast site.

As part of the deal Altitec will provide onsite training to the Rampion team on use of the ascender for lifting equipment with a maximum capacity up to 200kg. The agreement will also cover assessment and servicing at regular six month intervals, and an up-time guarantee to ensure the Rampion team always have access to powered ascenders, whenever they need them. The 400MW Rampion project is being built by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank plc and Canadian energy infrastructure company Enbridge. It is due to be complete and fully operational in 2018.
