04 March 2008

Manitowoc's Grove GTK1100 crane recently completed its inaugural lift for Repower Systems, which was installing a 2 kW wind turbine in Ilshofen, Baden W├╝rtemberg in Germany. The GTK1100 completed five lifts on the jobsite. The first three lifts were the wind turbine tower mast sections that weighed 62 tons, 53 tons and 45 tons. Next, was the installation of the heaviest element, the nacelle, which weighed 70 tons. Finally, the crane positioned the three rotor blades, each weighing 8 tons, which were assembled on the ground before being lifted as a single 42 ton load.
