Lifelines

Wind turbines are equipped with fixed servicing points to access any part of the tower or the nacelle. If there is a service lift in place, these servicing points can be used either for access or as an escape way in case of breakdown of the lift.

Most towers and ladders are fitted with stiff cable lifelines or a guardrail (UNE EN 353-1). Users can connect to them through a sliding fall protection device as they move along, in order to minimise the consequences of falling.
