The AXTech Wind Worker is a conceptual study together with MRPC (www.mrpc.no), and we are looking forward to develop this concept further together with Statoil and MRPC.
AXTech’s Wind Worker utilize a special catamaran vessel with active stabilization of the vessel’s roll and pitch together with a special compensated telescopic arm. By compensating the roll and pitch motions as well as synchronizing the telescopic arm with the windmill’s motions, maintenance may be performed in a safe and efficient way.
