This year started with the renaming of S&L Access Systems. The company is the same, but from now on we go under the name Skyrex. A combination of the word sky and the latin word for ruler, the name alludes to our ambitions and where we operate and the fact that no other player reaches as high.
The world needs to meet increasing energy demands without warming up the planet even more. The solution lies in releasing the true potential of wind energy. That’s where Skyrex come in. Our groundbreaking crane technology revolutionizes not only the construction of wind turbines, but also their maintenance.
We make it possible to build higher towers in less accessible locations, so that the harvesting of wind energy becomes more cost-effective and even more sustainable. We welcome you to join us on the journey. We’re going above the clouds.
We have developed a unique technology to build wind turbines and they can now be made taller and more powerful than anyone thought possible. The crane is erected gradually in segments from the bottom up, while it clings to the tower being built. This means that the crane is scalable and can lift both higher and heavier in a much shorter time, while substantially reducing cost and environmental impact.
The concept involves a completely new type of crane that makes it possible to reach hub heights of more than 200 meters, while lifting as much as 150 tonnes. What is more, the installation process is so much smoother and quicker. Being less sensitive to wind, our method also increases safety and keeps the operation going despite harsh weather.
The Skyrex lifting solution is a patented innovation that introduces a completely new way of thinking around wind turbine installation. For effective maintenance and upgrading, the concept is modular. It also features a new top section to further reduce the weight of the crane, made of high strength steel. Using a base frame with jack-up press, the crane is quickly built in segments from the bottom up, while clinging to the tower during the installation.
The ingenuity of the Skyrex makes an already sustainable energy source even more so. The construction process is entirely powered by electricity and dramatically reduces heavy transports to the site, resulting in CO2 emissions dropping by 75% compared to before.
The streamlined logistics require less ground space to be cleared and enables more inaccessible sites to be used. Our technology is transforming the world of wind power and making the future for renewable energy look even brighter.
