Wind- and waterpower

Mainly used for maintenance work on the generators our travelling cranes, bridge cranes and electric chain hoists used in hydroelectric power plants. Up to 150 m in height above ground the GIS electric chain hoists come up in the nacelle (gondola) for repair and maintenance work in wind turbines. The fitter appreciates especially that the fast rising speed of the electric chain hoist automatically reduces before reaching the gondola. He does not need to monitor continuously for up to 15 minutes the lifting operation and can concentrate in the meantime on other work.
