For our sister company LiftWerx, we will design two interesting lifting objects: the Genhook and RotorHook™. The GenHook (grey crane at image) has a capacity of more than 26t and will be used for the maintenance of wind turbines, specifically to exchange generators and gearboxes of the turbines. We will design and deliver two GenHooks to LiftWerx.
Rated at a lifting capacity of 75 tonnes, the RotorHook™ (yellow) is an industry-leading innovation which is designed to lower and lift a fully-assembled wind turbine rotor and main shaft, eliminating the need to utilize a large conventional crane on the ground. The RotorHook™ will set a new standard in performing major component corrective repairs.
The RotorHook™ is the largest up-tower lifting device ever to be developed in the wind energy O&M industry. Kenz will deliver this project to LiftWerx for maintenance of the Siemens turbines.
