The GenHook™ LT is a lighter version of the GenHook™, with a reduced capacity to mainly focus on gearbox component and generator exchanges. Specifically designed to work as a temporary crane in onshore wind turbine nacelles, it can be assembled in only 2 parts (lifts) using the Heli-Hook™ crane. Once assembled it has a hoisting capacity of 10 tons (SWL) to perform replacements on most 1.5MW to 5MW range wind turbines.
The GenHook™ LT can also be sued for lifting smaller major components on larger turbines, such as Helical Module or Planetary Module Lifts.
The GenHook™ LT is designed as Zero-Emission-Crane™, fully powered by the Wind Turbine back feed power circuit. As an option the GenHook™ LT can be supplied with a battery pack to increase hoisting speeds. With a battery pack the crane has a hybrid power supply. During lowering, energy is regenerated to charge the batteries. Any superfluous energy can also be fed back into the power circuit of the Wind Turbine.
Interfaces for a wide variety of wind turbines can be provided with the GenHook™ LT , and will be supplied to fit in one standard ISO 40ft container when combined with one Heli-Hook™ crane and interface components.
