Tower Access Platforms (TAP)

Spider’s external tower access platforms eliminate the need for expensive cranes and enable fast, safe, and cost-effective external maintenance. Our modular platform solutions are easy to transport and maintain and are compatible with most leading turbine makes and models. With a minor change to accessories, the tower access platform can be reconfigured as a blade access platform. 

With faster mobilization, a flexible modular system, and limited crew size required, we help wind turbine owners, operators, and service providers save time and money.
