Spider, a division of SafeWorks LLC, says it has provided two 360-degree blade access platforms (BAPs) to Suspendem Rope Access Inc. for blade repair and de-icing jobs on GE and REpower turbines at two different sites in Quebec.

The BAPs provided a blade-repair access solution for several GE turbines near Saint-Ulric and access to install experimental new anti-icing technology on two 2.05 MW REpower MM92 turbines for Wind Energy TechnoCentre.

"With Spider's universal 360-degree BAP, we were able to get three crew workers on the platform at the same time to do the larger repair work and the installation of anti-icing technology on the blades," notes Bill Talbot, director of business operations at Suspendem.
