WindSpider has been awarded a NOK 8.9 million grant from Innovation Norway related to the development and technical qualification of the WindSpider crane system.
“We are very pleased with the financial support and recognition of the disruptive WindSpider technology from Innovation Norway. The grant will allow for increased momentum in the ongoing development of the technology and company” says Kent Lynggaard Vinkel, the CEO of WindSpider.

The WindSpider solution provides a +50% cost reduction for installation and maintenance of next generation of bottom-fixed and floating WTGs. The cost reduction is achieved by using the WTG tower as support for the crane and hence enabling the use of vessels with substantially lower day rates and availability compared to new wind turbine installation vessels. The solution does also allow for game changing offshore maintenance of floating WTGs instead of tow-in to shore. As such, WindSpider will contribute to reduced LCOE, which is welcomed by the developers in the fast-growing offshore wind industry.

About WindSpider

WindSpider is a technology company that develops a new modular self-erecting crane system for wind turbines. The WindSpider solution include the tower of the wind turbine as part of the crane and as such enables mobilization at a lower height and weight using standard vessels offshore or cranes onshore. The WindSpider crane is designed for installation and maintenance for both bottom-fixed and floating substructures. With an effective lifting capacity of +1 200 metric ton and by eliminating relative motion between crane and tower, WindSpider solves issues with today’s solutions and is prepared for next generations of 15 – 20 MW wind turbines at a substantially lower cost.
