Wind Views | Crane Disassembly

One Energy’s Wind for Industry projects require cranes to lift the turbine components into place. When fully assembled, these cranes are almost 300 feet tall! So what do we do with such a big piece of equipment when it’s not in use?

Cranes can be disassembled into much smaller sections and stored at our headquarters, like the yellow crane pictured in today’s Wind View. Disassembling the crane allows it to be easily stored and await transportation to a project site whenever it is needed. When that time comes, the smaller crane (featured in this photo on the right) will be used to lift the sections onto trucks, so the crane can be transported to the necessary site.

Having the crane disassembled and ready for transport allows One Energy to quickly begin construction on projects, which will produce energy for our customers!
