    Snow as far as the eye can see – we sent a Self-Hoisting Crane to a remote site in Norway to replace a gearbox for a client. The job was executed successfully, with no civil works necessary as per usual. The photos show the crane being hoisted up-tower, the view from nacelle while changing gearboxes, and the small number of vehicles required on-site.

    This past week, we took part in our first turbine installation in China. The Liftra LT5002 Blade Yoke was on-site to install blades on the first of three GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines at Fujian Xinghua Gulf Offshore Wind Farm. A team of Liftra specialists operated the yoke, and the installation of all three 73.5 m blades went smoothly and without incident. The other two turbines are scheduled for installation in the coming weeks.

    With the success of this installation, Liftra is now the only supplier to have delivered blade yokes for offshore installations on each of the three continents that currently boast offshore wind farms – Europe, North America and Asia.
