The Climb assists will be installed in the GE 1.5-MW wind turbines being constructed at the Top of the World project near Casper, Wyoming for its owners and operators.
The patented IBEX Climb Assist puts control over the climbing effort and experience into the hands of the climber, delivering personalized performance, increased safety, and better productivity in most any wind-turbine tower.
The system allows user-adjustable support settings at 50, 75, 100, and 125 lbs (23, 34, 45, and 57 kgs), and provides constant load support in both the up and down directions, regardless of climbing speed. The IBEX system installs in new or existing wind turbine towers with straight-run ladders, whether tubular steel or lattice construction.
“Our IBEX 1000 Climb Assist systems improves the safety, comfort and productivity of the wind technicians, and ultimately delivers top turbine performance at the Top of the World site,” says Mike Russell, NA sales manager of Power Climber Wind.
