Retrofit Installation in 8 Hours or Less
The Climb Auto System can add considerable value to your windfarm. The Climb Auto System can be easily retrofitted to almost any wind turbine – often in 8 hours or less. Because the CAS is mounted to the existing ladder, installation typically requires no structural changes. The CAS reduces the cost of ownership compared to a Service Lift, thanks to lower upfront capital expenditures and lower operating costs.
3S Lift’s Climb Auto System has been installed in over 55,000 wind turbines worldwide.
The Climb Auto System allows technicians to ascend more towers per day, compared to the use of a Climb Assist or manual climbing. Because it eliminates climbing completely, it extends technician longevity. It also improves efficiency and turbine availability.
Faster tower ascent with no fatigue significantly augments technician productivity. This increases turbine uptime and annual energy production (AEP).
Improving Employee Retention
The Climb Auto System completely eliminates the need to climb, thus improving job satisfaction and motivation among technicians. This also boosts employee retention, reducing high technician turnover costs.
