    The newest member of our family of Blade Tip Clampers has a lifting capacity of 16 tons. It joins our three existing blade clampers with capacities of 3, 10, and 12.5 tons respectively. In simple terms, this means that we will now be able to support a much wider range of blade types.

    Most often deployed for full rotor lifts, our Blade Tip Clampers are designed for all operations that require blade tip support. They can each be adjusted for different blade thicknesses, and can be adapted to fit additional blade types upon request.

    We enter the new year with many exciting projects already lined up, but we can also look back on a busy 2018. Over the past year, we have completed numerous development projects as well as support and maintenance projects for a variety of clients.

    On a year-long assignment, Liftra technicians carried out a large-scale blade installation project at Merkur Offshore Wind Farm in the North Sea, successfully installing blades on 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines using the Liftra Blade Eagle.

    The average installation time per turbine (3 blades) were 6-7 hours. The installation process went without hitches, and no downtime was caused by the Blade Eagle. There were no sensor defects, while just a single hydraulic block was replaced from the spare parts container.

    Liftra's Blade Eagle is an advanced, remote-controlled blade yoke for offshore blade installation on electric-pitch turbines. It installs each blade between +/- 30° from horizontal, and eliminates the need for a separate rotor turning gear.

    We are delighted to announce that E.ON Climate & Renewables Operations and Maintenance has decided to place an order for our newly developed LT1200 Liftra Self-Hoisting Crane.

    E.ON is known for its commitment to innovation and safe, cutting-edge technology. One of the best in the business of large correctives, E.ON strives to always offer their customers the best and most cost-effective solutions on the market.

    With the LT1200 Liftra Self-Hoisting Crane, E.ON Climate & Renewables looks to further its growth in the service market and will now be able to change full rotor assemblies and main bearing assemblies on GE 1.5+1.6 MW, Siemens 2.3 MW, and Mitsubishi 1 MW turbines. This will allow their customers to save 30-50 percent on these large correctives.

    Furthermore, the new crane can be used with existing LT1000 base systems to change components on a long list of compatible turbines.

    E.ON's decision to purchase an LT1200 follows an announcement of its 100th gearbox change with the LT1000 Liftra Self-Hoisting Crane, which has helped their customers reduce costs up to 20 percent by reducing crane related costs and downtime.
