Currently Liftra is in the last stages of development process for the LT1500 Turbine Installation Crane which will be able to conduct both installation and maintenance of wind turbines. This crane is created with focus on deployment into complex sites, cost efficiency and sustainability. Similar to the LT1200 Self-Hoisting Crane, the LT1500 Turbine Installation crane will enable installation of the ever-increasing taller wind turbines.
In 2022, Liftra’s offshore projects included deploying the LT1200 Self-Hoisting Crane for main component replacement at the lake Vänern in Sweden. The crane was successfully applied for a gearbox exchange on a 3MW wind turbine for Innovent. Additionally, Liftra’s Tower Yoke and Blade Eagle were applied to support the installation of first commercial wind farm in France at the at the Parc éolien en mer de Saint-Nazaire wind farm, where the Blade Eagle installed more than 200 blades.
Liftra solutions are available worldwide with offices in Denmark, US, Spain, China, Vietnam, Australia, and Brazil. According to Liftra’s CEO and co-owner Per Fenger:
‘’Liftra strives to push boundaries in the engineering field and set new standards that can lower the cost of green energy.’’
