Unique infrastructure secures smooth loading of nacelles

The infrastructure of the former shipyard where Lindoe Nacelle Testing is located offers special roads and wagons for the transport of heavy sections, as well as crane capacity of up to 1,000 tons. This will make loading and unloading of customers’ nacelles for testing very smooth and quick.

At the heart of this unique infrastructure stands a gantry crane with a lift capacity of 1,000 tons, a span of 148.5 meters and with 77.5 meters below the hook. The hall for LORC Nacelle Testing is under construction at the end of, and in parallel with, the rails underneath this crane. This means that unloading of customers’ nacelles from a transportation ship and installation into one of the test docks can be done directly using the gantry crane, lifting the nacelle through removable roof parts of the LNT building. The same applies to the installation of the test nacelle if it arrives on site by road – the unloading and installation will be done with the gantry crane through the roof to the test dock from heavy transporters with a load capacity of up to 1,100 tons.
