Modern wind turbines are commonly equipped with service lifts, but what can be done to upgrade those old wind towers that only have climbing ladders? Limited space and costly modifications have made it impossible to install lifts on older turbines, reducing its energy output and compromising worker safety and health. Wind farm owners and operators have been actively seeking the optimal approach to retrofit.
3S Lift, a leading global player in this segment, has provided the Climb Auto System (CAS) and installed over 80,000 units in 5000 wind farms worldwide. As a single-technician ladder-mounted lift, the CAS helps technicians easily reach the top of turbine towers while putting zero stress on their muscles and joints. This advanced system can transport personnel and equipment to the top of an 80 meter tower in five minutes.
