Wind turbines are getting bigger and heavier, so it makes sense that the machinery and techniques used to lift them should evolve too. Electric chain hoists have been used within the industry since the early days, so what changes are being seen and how are companies like LIFTKET adapting their products to suit?
As early as the mid-1980s, a new branch of industry developed, initially starting in Europe, energy generation from wind power. LIFTKET established its hoists in this industry from the very beginning and over the years has become one of the market leaders in the field of electric chain hoists for wind power applications. In close cooperation with customers operating worldwide, its tailor-made solutions are designed near Leipzig in Germany.
