June 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Wind turbines present a viable source of energy, but lifting and handling the large wind turbine nacelles requires finesse. Assembling the wind turbines can be a difficult venture without the proper equipment which is where Fyns Kran Udstyr comes into play.

The hydraulic yoke is adjustable, allowing installers to change the nacelle’s center of gravity to an exact angle when mounting the nacelle on the tower. The device increases safety, reduces risk and lowers operational costs.

“The hydraulic yoke for wind turbine nacelles not only helps to improve working conditions and to enhance safety, but it also helps to save time while erecting wind turbines”, Torben Kofoed, Sales Manager at Fyns Kran Udstyr states.
The hydraulic nacelle yoke is CE-approved, and fulfills multiple standards and legislation requirements for safety and risk management.
The state of the art hydraulic nacelle yoke has been developed and perfected during the past 15 years. To date – more than 100 nacelle yokes have been supplied to the leading wind turbine manufacturers around the world.

“Judging from the above it is obvious that we will continue to be among the leading, serious and competitive suppliers in the market, which of course, is the primary reason that we focus on continuous optimization and development of lifting and handling solutions for the wind turbine industry,” Torben Kofoed says.
