Power Climber Wind, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, has installed forty-five IBEX® climb assist systems in France for EOLE-RES, one of the top developers of renewable energy production in the Mediterranean region and the Middle east.
The IBEX® system puts complete control of the climbing experience in the hands of the wind turbine technician, delivering personalized performance, increased safety, and better productivity. The IBEX® 1000 utilizes a patented closed feedback loop and EasyClimb Controller and responds to the climber’s movement and behavior.
EOLE-RES selected the IBEX® 1000 for installation on turbines at three of the wind farms it manages on behalf of The Renewables Infrastructure Group – Haut Languedoc, Haut Cabardès, and Roussas Claves.
“Our French customers see the benefits and value in the intelligent IBEX® climb assist,” said Edwin Holtkamp, Director of Sales – Power Climber International. “Our market-leading climb assist provided a complete retrofit program for these EOLE-RES managed wind farms, further enhancing the health and safety conditions for the climbers.”
