A cost effective emergency tool for evacuating wind turbines

15 Jul 2018

SkySaver Rescue Ltd. announced the introduction of SkySaver-WT, a simple and effective rescue device designed for use by technicians working on wind turbines and other tall structures, such as cranes. The SkySaver-WT looks like a backpack and contains a patented Controlled Descent Device (CDD), which utilizes a redundant centrifugal- and friction-based braking system to lower a turbine technician to the ground at a comfortable two meters per second. The CDD has been designed to function under extreme conditions and withstand prolonged exposure to high heat, flames, cold, water, sharp edges, and can even be operated in saline environments, making the SkySaver-WT a solution for industrial locations. The SkySaver-WT, which is intuitive to use and does not require advanced training, is also valuable in the emergency evacuation of incapacitated technicians, who may not be able to handle the complicated descent using ropes or other contraptions.
