Liftra has completed the blade installation on the MHI Vestas Sea Angel in Fukushima.
The Fukushima Sea Angel is mounted on a floating platform that was placed in the harbor during installation. Later, the platform is towed out to sea. The Blade Dragon was used to install three blades in the 2 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock positions, without rotating the turbine rotor. The blades were handled, sometimes under severe wind conditions up to 15 m/sec and the Blade Dragon performed perfectly. Mounting time per blade was 6 hours.
