”The next generation of controlling components during lifting operations.”
Hvide Sande Steel hereby presents the ‘APS-System’, a completely new multifunctional tool for positioning and controlling workpieces in the air.
Most people are familiar with the method of controlling material and workpieces during lifting using hand-held taglines. This method can now be replaced by the modern APS System which allows even the largest items to be installed and controlled very accurately, even when confronted with wind speeds of up to 14 m/s, steep mountainsides, high tree crowns and other immediate obstacles to hand-held taglines. The product extends the weather window on multiple sites and reduces the risk of accidents: personnel are no longer required to handle taglines under or near the suspended load, since the parts can now be installed in a controlled manner with the APS System, even in high wind speeds.
Around the world, the market has already welcomed Hvide Sande Steel’s product, which is both developed and produced in-house and which has further contributed to improved safety and efficiency at the many sites where the product is in use.
See the presentation and the videos below for further specifications, as well as our footage taken during wind turbine installations around the world.

”The new generation of fast and safe modular transportation”
Hvide Sande Steel hereby presents the ‘Blade Mover Universal’, a brand new product for efficient blade transport. With the ability to adapt to any interface, our product can handle, lift and transport wind turbine blades inside and outside production facilities and on to further transport via water and road networks. The product can travel at speeds of up to 15 km/h, has a lifting height of 4.2 metres and can manoeuvre around its own axis using the 4 independently steered wheelsets in each corner. Furthermore, the BMU has a total lifting capacity of up to 38 tons.
The BMU has been developed as a modular system that allows HVSA to adapt the product to each customer’s needs by adjusting e.g. length, width, lifting height and lifting capacity. The system is available with diesel or electric propulsion.
Watch the presentation and the videos below for further specifications, as well as our footage taken while handling and transporting wind turbine blades on site and during in-house testing.

”A safe and effective tool when working from fixed ladders.”
Everyone wants safety combined with efficiency – even in difficult working positions. Hvide Sande Steel hereby presents the ‘Ladder Hanger’, which is specially developed for installations of wind turbine towers and other vertical pipe constructions.
While the ‘Ladder Hanger’ can carry up to 230 kg, the product itself weighs only 4.1 kg, making it a tremendously light tool in terms of handling. After 2 simple steps the product is locked onto the ladder, ready for use.
The product is used by all major wind turbine manufacturers and is represented at sites around the world on- and offshore. It is mainly used when erecting wind turbine towers to lift different types of equipment and material before an internal lift is put into operation.
See our data sheet below for further technical specifications.
