Based in Germany, Axzion design and fabricate sophisticated heavy lifting equipment including motorised hydraulic spreader beams, with particular focus on the Wind Industry.  Axzion are part of the SpanSet Group family of companies. Here in the UK, we work closely in partnership with Axzion supporting customers in the UK and Ireland with access to Axzion lifting products and services, including spares, maintenance and inspection.

Axzion provide a simple solution to lifting tapered wind turbine tower sections. The multiple sections of a wind turbine tower have differing diameters from 3m to 8m. The patented Tower Attachment Point (TAP) allows the simplified lifting of tower sections with multiple diameters.  The TAP is lightweight and straightforward to use compared to other products on the market.  Its universal nature means it can be used to lift tower  segments with many varied diameters.

The patented Axzion Vario J hook allows a tower segment which is lying horizontally to be lifted into the vertical without damaging the flange.  Careful handling is critical to ensure a precise fitting of the segments.

Axzion equipment is available to rent in the UK through SpanSet.  It is possible to rent everything from a repowering kit to a 1000 tonne modular spreader beam. Rentals are available from one week to many months.
