In collaboration with AP Maskinteknik and freelance consultant Henning Kjær, DIS developed and delivered an assembly rig, which ensures that while meeting all requirements regarding safety and ergonomics, tower elements are assembled in the most efficient way.
Among others, the assembly rig consists of an approved type of personnel lift for transporting service engineers who bolt the segments together. DIS has also developed the control and operations for the lift, which moves automatically to ensure the most ergonomic distance between the tower segments – this means that the fitter hardly needs to operate the lift.
Despite measuring 17 meters in height, having overall dimensions of 11 x 15 meters and weighing over 32 tons, the station is highly flexible and easy to erect.
DIS has developed and supplied the assembly station as a turnkey project and accommodated Siemens' request for a swift development process by constantly adjusting the resources to fit the progress of the project.
