Liftra has delivered a new blade lifting solution to Siemens Wind Power for rotor assembly at Hywind Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland. The Blade Tip Yoke is required for tip end support during full rotor lifts on the five 6 MW turbines.
The tool has been developed specifically for the 75-meter blades on the SWT-6.0-154 turbine, and can be configured for other blade types as well.
Hywind Offshore Wind Farm will be the world’s first full-fledged wind farm on floating foundations. The turbines are expected to be operational later this year.
