WindSpider is a technology company that develops a new modular self-erecting crane system for wind turbines. The WindSpider solution include the tower of the wind turbine as part of the crane and as such enables mobilization at a lower height using standard vessels offshore or cranes onshore.

The WindSpider crane is designed for installation and maintenance for both bottom-fixed and floating substructures. WindSpider provides a +50% cost reduction for installation and maintenance of next generation of bottom-fixed and floating WTGs. The cost reduction is achieved by using vessels and cranes with substantially lower day rates and availability compared to new wind turbine installation vessels and ring cranes. The solution does also allow for game changing offshore maintenance of floating WTGs instead of tow-in to shore. As such, WindSpider will contribute to reduced LCOE, which is welcomed by the developers in the fast-growing offshore wind industry. With an effective lifting capacity of +1 200 metric ton and by eliminating relative motion between crane and tower, WindSpider solves issues with today’s solutions and is prepared for next generations of 15 – 20 MW wind turbines at a substantially lower cost.
