Demand for wind energy continues to grow year-on-year, wind turbines are getting ever bigger, and sites are getting more difficult to access and moving further out to sea. This is increasing the costs and the technical challenges of installing and servicing wind farms onshore and offshore as current installation methods require ever larger, more expensive and specialised vessels and cranes, many of which are not yet built or available.
The SENSE System. An all-in-one wind turbine self-erecting installation and maintenance system for onshore and offshore projects created by a highly experienced wind energy team.
It is unique in enabling the wind turbine to be assembled safely at low levels and then installed at the top of the tower in a single automated heavy lift which significantly reduces operational risk and installation time.
SENSE is not limited by tower hub height and its compactness and strength to weight ratio reduces site constraints, mobilisation costs, installation weather windows, hardstand size and carbon emissions.
Built-in installation, maintenance & inspection system eliminates expensive cranes or crane vessels and all crane operations at height
Unique single automated lift of the rotor nacelle
eliminates assembly operations at height and saves installation time and cost
Reduces mobilisation costs, biodiversity impacts and carbon emissions
Thanks to the uniquely compact equipment & low-level assembly more challenging sites become viable onshore and offshore
