ERICKSON Air-crane S-64 Aircrane

Powerline Construction


ERICKSON Air-crane

precision Powerline Construction The precision capabilities of the Aircrane, combined with the skill and experience of the pilots and crew, has led to the placement of over 8,000 miles (12,000 km) of electrical transmission towers across North America. With a rated lift capacity of up to 25,000 pounds (11,340 kg) and unique precision placement capabilities, the S-64 Aircrane is the platform of choice for a multitude of heavy-lift missions.

With conventional construction methods, tower site access by road is frequently difficult. This makes labor costs high, and tower completion slow and inefficient. These problems can be eliminated by flying completed towers or tower sections from central assembly yards directly over the rugged terrain to the site.

Erickson Air-Crane has developed a system for transmission line construction that is cost competitive with conventional methods. Over 80 lattice tower sections can be set in one day with the Aircrane.

This system offers two major benefits to contractors. First, it concentrates the labor force at strategically chosen central assembly yards—minimizing labor travel-time and inefficiency, and allows the foreman to closely and continuously supervise tower assembly. Second, the system gives contractors the ability to precisely schedule tower erection along the right of way and flexibility to change that schedule quickly and efficiently.

Erickson’s patented anti-rotation system will work with almost every type of structure. Over 140 wooden H-frames have been set in one day with the Aircrane. Environmental objections, expensive road building, and restoration costs can be avoided with use of the Erickson S-64 Aircrane. The Aircrane is the only helicopter in the world with an aft-facing pilot station that allows a full view of the load being placed, as well as an anti-rotation device that offers unparalleled control of the load.
