Scottish Developer Taps Power Climber Wind for Tower Climb Assists

Power Climber Wind, a division of SafeWorks, LLC, recently installed 75 IBEX® Climb Assist Systems at three wind farms in Scotland.


The system allows the wind turbine technician to have complete control of the climbing experience, delivering personalized performance, increased safety, and better productivity. The IBEX 1000P utilizes a patented closed feedback loop and EasyClimb Controller, and features a lightweight, compact, portable control box.

Fred Olsen Renewables purchased a combination of IBEX 1000s and IBEX 1000Ps to install on turbines at three of its Scotland wind plants — Rothes I, Cristal Rig I, and Paul’s Hill.

“IBEX is the market-leading climb assist globally, and we’re excited to see one of the leading wind project owners in the UK adopt it for their retrofit program,” said Edwin Holtkamp, director of sales for Power Climber International. “Repeat sales for new project construction as well as turbine retrofit efforts by leading global power producers testify to the level of customer satisfaction in this product and in Power Climber Wind. We anticipate IBEX to earn the same reputation in this region.”
