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:

• 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.
Smarter maintenance and installation methods are clearing a path to a more cost-effective wind industry overall. This month's issue of North American Clean Energy features a look at the benefits of using technologies that eliminate the need for large cranes.
