Cranes build wind turbine in four days

Two Manitowoc cranes installed a wind tower in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S., over a four-day period earlier this year. The 132 m (443 ft) turbine is located outside the headquarters of Lincoln Electric, a world leader in arc welding and a long-term supplier to the wind tower industry.

The turbine is one of the largest urban wind towers in North America and will provide up to 10 percent of the energy used at Lincoln Electric’s manufacturing plant, saving an estmated $500,000 a year in energy costs. A Mani towoc 16000 crawler crane and a Grove GMK5120B all-terrain crane were chosen to erect the 2.5 MW turbine. Both units belong to All Erection & Crane Rental Corp., the largest lifing equipment rental and sales company in North America.

George Blankenship, president of Lincoln Electric North America, said. “It was therefore essential that the tower was erected efficiently and to the highest standards of quality. The cranes on this job performed admirably and everything ran smoothly and on tme.”
