With a new certification from Lloyd’s, Avanti Wind Systems now meets the demands from the Global Wind Organisation to train and educate operators to work in wind turbines and other workplaces in similar heights. The training personal and facilities at Avanti Wind Systems headquarter in Hillerød, Denmark, are certificated to GWO standards to basic safety training for onshore and offshore activities covering “Working at Heights”, a 16 hour course.
This is the first step for Avanti to follow GWO standards for safe work in wind turbines. Other GWO-certifications will follow later this year.
The object of Global Wind Organisation is to support an injury-free work environment for construction and operating of wind farms on and offshore. To support this, GWO has developed a standard for basic safety training to provide personal working at wind farms with sufficient knowledge to obtain this target.
GWO is working with most wind turbine manufacturers and larger wind farm owners in Europe and the US. Safe work in wind turbines has always had top priority at Avanti. Hence, the company will always follow the highest standards in the field regardless of the country where Avanti is working. With this GWO certification Avanti Wind Systems says it also will train and educate anyone working in wind turbines to the same high standards.
