Improving Health & Safety, Turbine Uptime and Employee Retention

The 3S Lift Climb Auto System is wind’s new climb assist, improving Health & Safety and reducing the cost of ownership. On every wind farm there are countless soft tissue injuries due to the repetitive motion of climbing. These injuries can lead to sick days, long term health issues and reduced motivation among wind turbine technicians. With the Climb Auto System, technicians can safely reach the top of the tower, putting zero stress on their muscles and joints. The Climb Auto System is a safe and cost-effective way to ascend wind turbines. It lets technicians keep their minds on the job and not on the climb. The 3S Lift Climb Auto System is a single technician ladder-mounted lift that completely eliminates the physical and mental strain of climbing. It features safety control switches on both handles, a remote mode for the easy transport of tools, and collapsible pedals for rapid evacuations in the event of an emergency. The Climb Auto System offers independent fall-arrests for both personnel and the system itself.

Retrofit Installation in 8 Hours or Less

The Climb Auto System can be easily retrofitted to any new or existing wind turbines – often in 8 hours or less. Because the Climb Auto System is mounted to the existing ladder, the installation typically requires no changes to the wind turbine structures. The Climb Auto System reduces the cost of ownership compared to service lifts, both in terms of capital and maintenance costs and has been installed in over 30,000 wind turbine towers worldwide. It has certifications from CE, UL, ANSI, OSHA, and more, fully complying with the requirements of all major markets.
