Rotor Assembly

The most critical of all wind turbine lifts is the Rotor Assembly. The rotor has a high surface area for wind to affect while lifting, and is composed of fragile components. RMS Cranes consistently performs this critical process with experienced operators, following lift plans based on manufacturer guidelines and careful consideration of weather conditions.

Nacelle Lifts

RMS Cranes effectively removes and installs nacelles across several wind turbine manufacturers platforms. Experienced personnel, lift Plans, proper set-up, focus on weather, late-model equipment, and certified rigging all contribute to successful nacelle lifts. With a focus on safely executing these critical lifts, RMS Cranes can provide superior service and results.

Replacement Parts

Wind turbines are made up of hundreds of mechanical components that can have issues requiring crane support to perform repairs. RMS Cranes offers a wide range of cranes to support large and small component repairs as the situation may require. Motors, generators, transformers, brakes, bearings, gearboxes, and blades are some of the more common parts that we provide crane support for.

Gearbox Repairs

The gearbox of a wind turbine sees all of the forces from the wind an converts those forces to speeds that the generator can utilize. The gearbox connects the main (low speed) shaft from the Rotor with the high speed shaft that drives the generator. Within the gearbox are bearings, intermediate shaft(s), gears, and bushings that are all susceptible to wear and damage that can require cranes for repair support.
