Power Climber Wind, a division of SafeWorks LLC, says it has provided over 1,000 nacelle davits to 18 different wind plants across North America.

According to the company, in an effort to reduce potential technician fatigue and injury from manually carrying tools from the wind turbines' yaw deck to the nacelle, an unidentified customer reached out to Power Climber Wind in search of a solution. The two engineering teams collaborated to design and build the nacelle davit.

Power Climber says the nacelle davit features a 250 lb capacity and optional chain or electric hoist, complies with federal, local and state material handling codes, has the ability to retrofit to any 1.5 MW gearbox, and installs in just under an hour.

“The nacelle davit that we customized specifically for these 1.5 MW turbines has provided a safer material transfer solution, increasing the customer's overall productivity,” says Mike Russell, Power Climber Wind’s national sales director.
