Lagerwey tests its Climbing Crane in Dutch Eemshaven

Lagerwey is currently testing the first climbing crane in the world for the installation of wind turbines in the Dutch Eemshaven. After several tests on the ground it is now time to test the crane’s climbing and hoisting abilities in practice. The tests are carried out on the highest wind turbine on land in the Netherlands.

The so-called Climbing Crane raises the tower parts of the wind turbine and uses the same tower to climb upwards. Thus, the crane builts up and rises independently. This solves the problem of expensive transport and long construction times of giant cranes that are now being used to build the ever-increasing wind turbines. Using the Climbing Crane also facilitates the installation of high wind turbines at sea because large construction vessels are no longer required.

The test will take several weeks. From October, Lagerwey will use the Climbing Crane for the construction of the second L136 turbine in the Eemshaven.
