Handling and transport of nacelles in WTG towers

Airpes, as a lifting, handling and weighing specialist, designed a taylor made solution modifying a nacelle lifting beam for the wind sector.

It was a very difficult situation, because the last lifting beam could not align the nacelle to the tower. Airpes designed, manufactured, tested and installed a whole new hydraulic system that allowed the beam to move ± 3º in the horizontal axis. And then, the nacelle could be aligned to the tower safely and efficiently.

After testing this system in France a worldwide introduction of the system was made with great success.

Check out the impressive pictures of the operation is our brand new gallery. You can see how the nacelle was being installed and how well it works in different weather conditions, something to keep in mind when you design a system for the offshore sector.
