Controlled lifting in high wind speeds
Wind turbines are increasing in size and are being installed further from shore where high wind speeds are prevalent. In case of such complex installations, the precise control of wind turbine components during lifting operations is of the utmost importance to ensure the safety of the personnel and wind turbine components. Eltronic offers tagline solutions that allow for a safe and controlled guiding process of rotors, nacelles, and single blades in any site conditions onshore & offshore. We offer:
Tag & Guide Wire System Tagline Master Tagline 4 Master Mobile Tagline System Capstan Winches Guidewire Winch
Safe to use
The system is remotely controlled which eliminates manual handling and increases safety on the site.
Easily adaptable to fit different crane types and can be combined with various types of lifting equipment.
Ability to install wind turbines at high wind speeds minimises the timeframe required for installation.
Eltronic is handling the entire documentation and crane approval process in connection with the use of the system.
Tagline Master is a patented system which automatically keeps tension - and is the only product on the market that can do this. If the tension on the tagline exceeds the allowed level, the tagline master automatically adjusts the tension until an acceptable level is reached. If the tension decreases in return, both tagline masters will add tension to the tagline.
Available size up to 100kN
Adjustable tension within the range
Logging of pulling force data
Easy to build on a crane, rig, vessel etc.
Tag & Guidewire System
Tag & guidewire system enables the component to be in a fixed and stable position enabling the operator to be in a full control of the load. The system operates independently. This means that both winches have full capacity for controlling the orientation of the component lifted. All winches are protected with an adjustable brake which will slide if the maximum tension is reached.
All four winches are electrically driven
Guidewire operates in mooring mode
Guidewire settings 110-211 kN
Tag wire with a capacity of 20-63 kN
Tagline 4 Master
A traditional tagline master system controls the horizontal position of a load to make sure the load will not turn, regardless of wind, crane movements or other external impacts. The TGM 4 system is used if greater control is needed in both horizontal positions as well as vertical position.
Pre-tensioned with a force between 5 - 80kN.
Automatically adjust the tension between all taglines
Controls vertical & horizontal position
Due to its flexible design, the mobile tagline system can be customized to fit even the most narrow and gravel environments. The system significantly improves safety on the site and it can be used for installation and service operations of all main components.
Can be operated by only one technician.
Due to a built-in generator, the system does not require power cables.
Software with mooring on both winches.
Techanical rope spooling system
The Capstan Winch is a semi-automatic tagline solution controlled by foot pedals. It has a speed preset feature to adjust the winch speed to the given operating condition. The winch is equipped with a safety mechanism allowing the tagline to wind out then the tension in the line exceeds 10000N.
Controlled in-and out-winding by foot pedals
Mechanical safety release when the max. tension of 1000kg is exceeded
Simple to operate and easy to maintain
Case: Offshore Tagline System
Our tagline system was used to complete the installation of 50 wind turbines at Nobelwind offshore wind farm. The tagline system is a control system for safe lifting operation during the installation process of main wind turbine components. The system is mounted directly on the crane and is used for guiding and controlling the components during the lifting operation.
