ROTOR WTG Rescue System has been configured to meet the exacting requirements of the renewables sector.

The ROTOR rescue system is fully rated for 2 person descent and sealed in a barrel for corrosion resistance meaning it can be safely stored on site.

At the core of the wind turbine rescue system is the ROTOR rescue and evacuation descender, an intuitive device which allows self-evacuation automatically limited maximum descent speed or controlled lowering or raising of a casualty. The ROTOR can control rope speed in either direction, meaning that repeated descents can be carried out in quick succession. The maximum descent height is 500 m for 200 kg or 220 m for 250 kg. Comes with 9.5 mm rope.

The ROTOR can also lift in either direction using the ratchet handle supplied. With the locking mechanism engaged the load is held if the handle is released. Maximum lift load is 200 kg.
The ROTOR can change from lift to lower (and vice versa) at any point whilst under load.

ROTOR WTG rescue system also includes edge protector – constructed of durable stainless steel for corrosion resistance for exposed locations.

The rescue system is supplied in a robust protective case.
