Husum Wind 2012: Lifting, handling and positioning of wind turbine nacelles solution

Danish based Fyns Kran Udstyr has developed a hydraulic yoke it says makes lifting, maneuvering and mounting wind turbine nacelles quicker and safer.

The hydraulic yoke is adjustable, allowing installers to change the wind turbine nacelle’s centre of gravity to an exact angle when mounting the nacelle on the tower. The device increases safety, reduces risk and lowers operational costs, says Fyns Kran Udstyr, which is exhibiting at Husum this week.

“The hydraulic yoke for wind turbine nacelles not only helps to improve working conditions and to enhance safety, but it also helps to save time while erecting wind turbines”, Torben Kofoed, the company’s sales manager says.

The hydraulic nacelle yoke is CE-approved, and fulfills multiple standards and legislation requirements for safety and risk management. It has been developed and perfected during the past 15 years. To date Fyns Kran Udstyr has supplied more than 100 nacelle yokes leading wind turbine manufacturers around the world.
