Wind farm hoists order
12 December 2012
Demag Cranes & Components has won an order from Granada Material Handling to supply 164 electric wire rope hoists for a renewable energy project. The order comes in the wake of a contract, awarded to Granada by RWE npow
Granada has incorporated the Demag hoist within its specially designed 'Python' Crane system, which will be mounted on the foundation platform of wind turbines and each of two substations in the offshore wind farm.
The 1.3t SWL Demag FDR PRO 5 electric wire rope hoists have been designed to meet the requirements of the offshore application and incorporate a range of features. Hoist stability, slow lifting speeds for precision handling, fast lifting speeds for load take off and a 24m height of lift ensure precise hook positioning for simple and safe unloading of supply vessels.
