Monopiles are steel structures that anchor offshore wind turbines to the seabed. While manufacturing a wind tower monopile, steel handling plays a vital role in the steel processing stage. Choosing the right lifting magnet can help to increase efficeincy of steel handling.
Difficulties Offshore Wind Tower Will Face
Corrosion: Offshore wind towers are exposed to harsh marine conditions, including saltwater and high humidity. These can cause corrosion and weaken the structural integrity of the tower.
Fatigue: Offshore wind towers should be able to withstand continuous exposure to strong winds and waves.
Weight: Offshore wind towers need to be significantly taller and larger than their onshore counterparts to capture stronger and more consistent winds at sea.
These problems require the use of heavier materials in wind tower monopile manufacture, presenting challenges in steel handling and processing.
Advantages of Electro Permanent Lifting Magnet
Rapid Operation: They have quick magnetization/demagnetization functionality, allowing for swift attachment and release of steel plates.
Safety and Reliability: These magnets don’t rely on continuous power supply. Even if the power is cut off, it will not lose its magnetic force, minimizing the risk of accidental drops caused by power failure. Additionally, they have magnet performance check system to detect the operating status.
Versatility: Telescopic beam is an optional attachment. With it, electro permanent lifting magnet can handle steel plates of different sizes.
Lower Manpower: It can be operated by a single operator. The operator can control the magnet using a remote control or a control panel, allowing for efficient and independent handling of steel materials.
Advice from Lifting Magnet Supplier
HVR MAG specializes in lifting magnet manufacture for more than 10 years. We have manufactured types of electro permanent lifting magnets with custom design such as laser positioning equipment.
