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

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 500m for 200kg or 220m for 250kg.

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 200kg.
The ROTOR can change from lift to lower (and vice versa) at any point whilst under load.

ROTOR WTG rescue system also includes the CASCADE edge protector. Constructed of durable stainless steel, the CASCADE is corrosion resistant making it perfect in exposed locations.

The rescue system is supplied sealed in a robust, waterproof barrel with humidity indicator complete with load rated lifting bag.
