    Several global rankings are pointing to Aalborg University as one of the world's best in the field of engineering. US News' "Best Global Universities" ranks AAU 1st among European engineering schools, and a report from MIT on the "global state of the art in engineering education" rates AAU 3rd worldwide.

    According to Liftra CEO Per Fenger, the praise is rightly earned:

    In a pivotal step for our latest craneless technology, the Blade Way system has completed its SAT in California. The test involved lowering and reinstalling two blades on a wind turbine. The operation went smoothly.

    Blade Way is designed to lower and hoist single blades without the use of large conventional cranes to reduce mobilization costs and avoid civil works.

    The system allows three pitch bearings to be replaced in five days and handles blades up to 14.6 tons. The maximum wind speed is 12 m/s, and the maximum hub height is 170 m.

    65 to go. Another installation has begun, as the first of 66 Haliade 150-6MW turbines is now complete at Merkur offshore wind farm in the North Sea. Liftra is involved on two fronts:
    • We have personnel on-site to install blades with our LT5002 Blade Yoke.
    • The towers are lifted into place pre-assembled using our newly developed Full Tower Lifting Tool.

    All 66 turbines are expected to be fully installed by winter this year.
