Power Climber Wind will be providing 220 IBEX 1000P climb assist systems to a renewable energy company for three wind plants in New York – the Altona, Chateaugay and Wethersfield projects.
The IBEX 1000P systems will be installed on 65 turbines at Altona, 71 turbines at Chateaugay, and 84 turbines at Wethersfield later this year. The company says the innovative features of the IBEX1000P’s portable control box, weighing only 8.5 lbs (4 kgs), set new standards for portability and durability. In addition to its IP 56 rating and durable design, the control box is life-cycle tested and weatherproofed, and provides a safe, reliable, and controlled up-tower climb for technicians in any tower, even in harsh climate conditions.
“When a wind plant owner chooses to install the IBEX 1000P climb assist in every turbine at three of their projects, you know they are confident in the benefits they will reap,” says Mike Russell, National Sales Director. “Close to 10,000 systems have been sold worldwide. The 1000P’s portable control box eliminates the lugging of heavier controls tower to tower, offering a practical and technician-friendly safety tool by reducing the long-term wear and tear from climbing multiple ladders per day. And productivity increases as well. Everybody wins,” says Russell
