WINDPOWER 2012


SEATTLE & BRUSSELS--Power Climber Wind, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, introduced the next generation of its Turbine Service Lift (TSL), featuring increased travel speed and advanced electronics at Windpower 2012, held in Atlanta.

Driven by a proven, proprietary hoist with integrated overspeed and slack rope safety devices, the service lift's 70 feet/min travel speed provides a dramatic increase in technicians' productivity. Additionally, solid state electronics with active fault monitoring and an active system status display enhance operator safety and confidence.

"The success of our market-leading IBEX® climb assist has demonstrated that putting the operator in control dramatically increases safety, productivity and confidence," explained Gregory Crew, Global Product Manager. "Similarly the intelligent electronics in our new service lift not only increase operator awareness and control, but enable remote fault monitoring and preventative maintenance alerts, increasing productivity and uptime."

With close to 10,000 service lifts operating globally, Power Climber Wind is making work at height safer. With improved safety features, proven operation over the years, and compliance with the most rigorous global safety standards, the next generation service lifts offer the highest level of technicians' safety. Manufactured in the company's ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities, these service lifts also meet have AECO approval under ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7.
