Power Climber Wind Meets Strict Service Lift Regulations At Ontario Wind Project


Power Climber Wind recently provided 58 turbine service lifts (TSLs) to the Port Dover and Nanticoke Wind Project in Ontario, Canada.

Strict lift and elevator code compliance was required by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) and the soon-to-be-adopted A17.1.5.11 wind turbine elevator standard issued by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Power Climber Wind’s engineering and product support team expertly navigated the codes, securing the required permits and product acceptances for the installation of TSLs at the project.

Fifty-eight Sherpa window model TSLs were installed, enabling safe and efficient access of workers and materials to the wind turbines while eliminating the potential for injuries caused by repetitively climbing the turbines’ ladders. Power Climber Wind provided installation training and oversight throughout this phase of the project.

“Our experience and thorough knowledge of industry regulations enables us to lead the way with the safest, most reliable and code-compliant products in North America,” commented Colby Hubler, Key Account Manager for Power Climber Wind.
