LT998-1 Lifting Yoke for Gearbox

Siemens 2.3 MW

The lifting system has been developed to lift the Winergy gearbox off the 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbine. The lifting system has two chain hoists, which allows adjusting the gearbox to the correct position for removing and installing it, on the main shaft in the nacelle.  At every fourth attachment point on the gear box, you find a load cell, which ensures correct load distribution, when lifting the gear box. The lifting system furthermore has two attachment points. These keep the gearbox in position, when sliding it off the main shaft, and when pulling the replacement gearbox on to the main shaft.
