For the installation of a wind turbine’s hub, a Hub Rotating Tool is used. This tool can be operated from a safe distance. After the installation of the hub, the Hub Rotating Tool is used to rotate the hub so that the turbine blades can be installed horizontally.

The Hub Rotating tool has 3 lifting points that can be easily attached to a crane. Our modified AQUALLINE Open Spelter Sockets No. 140 were used in this tool. The wire inlet was re-worked to fit the desired wire rope diameter.
