    When lifting a full rotor on turbine with electric pitch control, a sling is typically enough to hold the tip end of the vertical blade. However, unlike electric-pitch blades, blades with hydraulic pitch control can turn only 90°, meaning the leading edge cannot be faced downward to allow attachment of a sling.

    Full rotor installation is still possible on hydraulic-pitch turbines with a blade tip clamper, and we have just upgraded our smallest clamper to support a wider range of blade types. Lifting capacity has been increased from 3 to 5 tons, while the wind speed limit has been raised to 12 m/s.

    Liftra Blade Tip Clampers now come with WLLs of 5, 10, 12, and 16 tons. Each can be adjusted to different blade thicknesses, and can be tailored to specific blade types upon request.

    We are pleased to announce that Vestas has placed an order with us for 150 sets of Tower Stacking Frames. Production of the first batches is scheduled for early 2019, set for delivery shortly thereafter.

    Several OEMs in the industry deploy Liftra Tower Stacking Frames, as the system is universally compatible across all turbine brands with tower sections weighing up to 100 tons and a diameter of 2.3-5.0 meters. When stacked on the ship, they require limited space, which is key to reducing costs for the turbine manufacturer.
