Enerpac develops lift facility for turbines

November 17 - Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology has developed a temporary maintenance facility for power plant turbine rotors.

Intended for use as a temporary workshop, the self-erecting facility hall (SEFH) features a heavy lift strand jack, ancillary crane and a 10-ton (9.1-tonne) overhead crane.

According to the Wisconsin, USA-based firm, the 12.7 m-high facility is capable of servicing 12 m-long, 3 m-diameter turbine rotors, weighing up to 70 tons (63.5 tonnes), and is ideal for use in locations inaccessible to large cranes.
