A brand new offshore project for Airpes
It is a pleasure to present you our latest on demand solution: an offshore project we are very proud of and that has been highly successful.
It’s the design, manufacturing and testing of a blade counterweight tool for Haliade 150 Offshore turbine.
The client needed a counterweight tool that would provide enough counterbalance torque to rotate the Haliade 150 wind turbine rotor with one or two blades.
A project designed with ALSTOM / GE
For this project we have worked coordinated with one of the main multinational companies on sustainable mobility and energy sector, ALSTOM/GE.
Blade counterweight tool to turn the Haliade 150 turbine
The counterweight tool is lifted by a crane and bolted to hub flange. The driving torque is provided by the counterweight located at the end of a boom.
The design of the counterweight tool takes into account the following:
- Fulfillment of all specifications
- Minimize shipment requirements and assembly time at site
- Optimize the weight of parts and size of actuators
- Cost reduction
The blade tool counterweight was manufactured in late 2015 and tested in our facilities in Sabadell, Barcelona, followed by the launch in Nantes, with huge success.
