Climbing maintenance platform for wind turbines

The more and the longer wind turbine generators (WTGs) are used to generate electricity, the more important the issues of maintenance and repair become. As this is challenging due to the height of the WTGs and can lead to personal accidents, a self-climbing maintenance platform is being developed in the project. This will be used to operate an equipped work cabin at the height of the wings, which will enable the WTGs to be maintained, tested and analysed in any weather.
