Wind power market in Vietnam has shown rapid growth in the past decades. In fact, there is a number of projects that have been started and completed on schedule in Quang Binh, Gia Lai, Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, Bac Lieu, etc. Currently, there are many wind projects that are on-going or to be implemented in the coming years.
Constructing a wind farm project will require a huge mobilization of advanced equipment for lifting and installing wind towers. Therefore, the crawler crane is an indispensable machine in wind works. It is used for erection of heavy components of the wind tower such as wind turbines, generators, blades, etc.
Wherever there are wind power projects, there are crawler cranes
Erection of wind turbines is not an easy job!
Typically, wind farms are built in hard-to-reach locations (mountains, offshore, isolated areas,etc) to harvest the wind energy. To access these locations, the crawler crane is an optimal solution as it offers great maneuverability on complicated terrains such as mountainous or sandy ground or on barges.
Crawler crane’s applications in wind power construction:
- Erection or replacement of rotors, gearboxes, generators, nacelles and blades.
- The biggest challenge for cranes when erecting wind turbines is the wind power. High wind will pose a threat to safety as most of the jobs need to be done at the height of 270 feet (82m) to 300 feet (91m) => crawler crane is the best choice in terms of reliability, capacity and safety.
- In addition, crawler cranes are also used to lift/lower heavy wind power equipment such as blades, nacelles, towers, gearboxes, generators, transformers, etc. and facilitate equipment transportation to desired locations.
