Windmills utilise the power of wind to pump water or generate electricity, by making use of the natural flow of the wind in the atmosphere of the earth. The wind’s energy is trapped by the turbine blades of the windmill to create mechanical energy. To make sure that the windmill installation is perfect, you need to approach a distributor, who not just offers you the assembly system for windmill mounting, but takes the entire responsibility post installation. HTS Direct Limited is the ultimate destination in this case. Being the sole distributor of the ACTEK WKA-System windmill towers in the United Kingdom, we handle all your needs and issues from A to Z. Built to stand erratic weather conditions and strong winds, we can guarantee that our products last for years without a single damage.
Specialist Supplier of ACTEK WKA-SystemScroll Down
A safe and cost reducing installation of a windmill is of increasing importance. Reduce your assembly time and mount your tower segments with our patented ACTEK WKA-System. Our installers, who are also certified electricians, will asses the site (both at the site and also at the nearby areas) and topographic features (length, shape, width and height and direction of a landform away from the proposed site). Landforms like forests, hills, buildings or high windbreaks that might have an impact on the functionality of the turbine are our primary lookout. Usually, the maximum distance of a nearby landform from the proposed site is 500 feet.
Whole tower families or different types of towers could be mounted with the WKA-System. It is working on a WKA and WKA-B basis and allows the use of different screw sizes and different distances of the flange holes.
Each ACTEK WKA-System has a minimum of only four WKA hoist rings for the top flange and two WKA-B hoist rings for the bottom flange. Therefore the system uses the already existing flange holes.
We can reach the highest lifting capacities in all lifting angles due to the use of ACTEK hoist ring with a 5:1 safety factor. The hoist rings come with lifting capacities from 7.000 (15400) to 31.500 kg (69.300 lbs.) for each hoist ring. All parts of the WKA system come nickel plated (except screws and nuts). This surface layer protects from corrosion due to humidity and salty air.
The HTS FS-System is a fail-safe colour code system for screws and nuts to prevent the use of bigger nut sizes on smaller screws. Bright colours help to find them on the ground and help not to use regular silver screws by mistake.
