HAWART has been a strong partner within the wind industry for over 30 years. We design, construct, manufacture and install a wide range of special solutions for wind turbine manufacturers around the world.
We meet our customer’s requirements using innovative solutions. Our design and production facilities at Ganderkesee in Lower Saxony and our mechanical and electrical engineering activities meet the highest quality standards. Our customers associate HAWART with flexibility, reliability, and know-how.
U-BIT- the universal rotor blade installation tool
The U-BIT enables our customers to assemble and disassemble rotor blades weighing up to 27.5 tonnes directly on the wind turbine. We can modify it to fit different rotor blade contours by adapting the blade seats. The U-BIT is housed in a 40-foot container for effective and safe transportation to the construction site. Commissioning only takes an hour. The U-BIT can be folded up and loaded onto a trailer for repositioning within a wind farm.
U-BTS- the universal blade transportation system
In the field of logistics HAWART has become on of the leading manufacturers of rotor blade, tower section and other on – and offshore wind turbine component transportation and storage systems. In collaboration with vehicle manufacturer DOLL, HAWART has developed a lifting adapter for the transportation of rotor blades by road with a load capacity of up to 35 tons.
The root of the rotor blade is connected to the hydraulic lifting adapter, the tip of the rotor blade is supported in two fixtures on a tandem frame, mounted on a precise self-steering trailer.
We have been manufacturing hydraulic turning devices for rotor blade production moulds since 2005, which are used for positioning and glueing the fibre composite parts with highest precision. Our newly designed HAWART-HINGE 4.0 is suitable for all currently available rotor blade types. Our optimisation efforts have resulted in an extremely compact design with an even higher torque. It can be used with existing and future mould designs and the decentralised control meets with Industry 4.0 requirements.
