Craneless System to replace rotor blades on wind turbines
Wind blades range from 40m to 60m in length and more than 16 tons in heigh. In addition to this, usually wind farm sites are usually located in places with high-speed winds, so an exchange or replacement of a rotor blade is not an easy task.
Our challenge was to develop an effective in cost and features Craneless Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Exchange System. The simple fact of replacing a blade usually entailed a big logistic investment in terms of equipment (a mobile crane capable of hoisting the weight to the required weights) and people involved.
We are presenting two options for the Craneless Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Exchange System. Our system avoids the use of large cranes and that fact makes those systems unbeatable in cost and efficiency to be used on higher platforms.
