Wind Sector | Nacelles in WTG Towers

Initial situation

Airpes designed, manufactured, tested and installed a new hydraulic system that allows the beam to move ± 3º in the horizontal axis.

Initial situation description:
Difficulty in aligning the nacelle to the tower during installation using current lifting beam.

Requirement:
Modify the current lifting beam to align the nacelle to the tower to improve the installation process.

Airpes' solutions

Airpes designed, manufactured, tested and installed a new hydraulic system that allows the beam to move ± 3º in the horizontal axis.
The client needed an hydraulic system for the nacelle installation in the tower. The installation process of the tower wouldn't be complete without this hydraulic system functioning in the right way.

Results

Airpes modified current Nacelle Lifting Beam SWL 490T with a newly designed hydraulic system to allow the alignment of the nacelle to the tower.

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