Wind Turbine Personnel Hoist LLC has entered the wind turbine personnel hoist market. The new company is a sister company of America Construction Hoist, a 36-year-old supplier of large-scale personnel and material hoists to industrial facilities across North America.

Wind Turbine Personnel Hoist will provide rack-and-pinion hoists for wind turbine towers. The personnel hoist eliminates the risk to personnel of having to climb long sections of ladders, thereby reducing the likelihood of fall injuries for tower maintenance staff and greatly reducing the tower owners’ liability exposure related to such accidents, the company explains.

Wind Turbine Personnel Hoist adds that it can supply to new turbine towers or can retrofit existing towers, will either lease or sell custom-designed personnel hoists, will provide safe access to the tops of the turbines, and offers service agreements, thereby insuring that the tower access system remains consistently operational.
