According to LiftWerx, the BoxHook crane is a new development which will cut down repair costs for both offshore and onshore turbines.

Once mounted, the crane can perform corrective repairs for gearboxes, generators, transformers, and other major components, thus replacing the expensive jack-up vessels, the company said.

The solution, said to be easily assembled using one of LiftWerx’s GenHook cranes, has a lifting capacity of up to 100 tonnes. It can be mounted at tower heights of up to 175m.
