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.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
