Acciona Windpower Plant
Four companies worked in unison to meet the demanding specifications of a new Acciona Windpower plant in Iowa, USA.
“Because of the size and scale of the nacelles, Acciona needed to be able to set equipment precisely via the hoist motion,” says Carl Walters, Drivecon sales manager.
“We recommended the 45 ton cranes be built with the XT variable speed control system for precise setting of the equipment,” Walters adds. “With the XT control system, the motor will speed up or slow down to match the production speed the user specifies with an available 1000:1 speed ratio.” read more here.
