OFFSHORE NACELLE LIFTING BEAM | ADWEN
Offshore Company Adwen needs a brand new nacelle lifting toolkit and lifting equipment. Airpes is responsible for its design and manufacture.
Nacelle lifting beam
This tool consists of the main beam of a circular section of steel tube (1) with two trunnions (2) attached to each side. Additionally, there is a beam attached perpendicular to the main beam whose function is to help guide the tool during hoisting maneuvers.
The hoisting is done with a synthetic set of slings (4) that connect both the tool and the nacelle AD8. Both the main beam and trunnions that are attached to it, are designed to accept aluminum wedges (figure 2) that allow adjusting the tool’s longitudinal and transverse angle.
Additionally, there are two rear supports (5) with sliding pins that allow fast hooking and release of the slings with the rear part of the nacelle AD8.
The tool was designed for the full nacelle’s lifting (once the transmission tree is installed) in the 600t. ADWEN 8 MW generators.
DNVGL Certificate, along material certificates 3.2, CE Mark, C5m complying, etc… whichever requirement you can request, we will adapt to your necessities.
Up to 600t
This solution is prepared for multiple nacelles up to 600tn.
The tailor-made solution, that meets your requirement
Thanks to our multi-purpose facilities, we can design, engineer, manufacture, and load test all at once in the same place, the Airpes GROUP HQ in Airpes Spain.
This allows us to be more competitive, reliable, and to problem-solve all the solutions in the fastest way.
Load-tested in our own Workbench up to 1000t
Thanks to our 1000t Work-bench, we can schedule all our load-tests as fast as possible and in a reliable way in order to ensure the proper working and certification of any tool.
In Airpes we believe that not all the solutions must be electro-mechanically or electro-hydraulically controlled, as one of our key points in the industry, sometimes, the simpler, the better.
With this static solution, installing a nacelle is just as easy as to sling, anchor and lift-up!
Thanks to the different anchor points and playing with the sling’s regulation, the tool can be configured for many different nacelle types, ensuring it’s proper working.
