Hoist Passengers for Offshore & Wind

Hoist Passengers for Offshore & Wind

BookLast booked 52 minutes ago

Flying to and from and around oil rigs or wind farms can require specific skills for helicopter pilots and for the passengers. In order to guarantee safe transport of persons and rescuing persons by helicopter by means of the associated winch / hoist procedures requires not only a qualified helicopter crew, but also requires training for the passengers.

In offshore wind farms, hoist operations, where people are placed directly onto the nacelle of a wind turbine using the helicopter hoist, are almost daily business. The helicopter can optimally utilise many of its advantages, especially in challenging weather and wave conditions. To ensure competence and cofidence for the person at the end of the line, we offers training courses for passengers for whom hoist operations are likely. So when the offshore wind worker is hoist safety and know what he can expect during this procedure.
