The benefits of wind energy from wind farms are significant, much like our company ethos, wind farms produce energy in a green manner with a low carbon footprint; energy production here is good for the environment. However, particularly onshore, their remains concerns regarding the visual pollution that wind farms cause on the landscape.
Dirty and soiled wind farms are therefore inexcusable; it is essential that they remain as aesthetically pleasing as possible. HLS provide a commercial / industrial cleaning service to ensure that wind farms remain looking pristine. Our rope access technicians are experienced in cleaning the structures; using high and low pressure water cleaners and steam cleaners where necessary at height.
High level painting is also occasionally necessary to ensure the aesthetic appearance remains positive; rope access is used to paint both externally and internally on the turbine.
The use of rope access ensures efficiency; the isolation time to clean or paint a wind turbine is minimal when compared with powered access cleaning or painting methods.
Windfarm Maintenance; cleaning, painting, inspections and confined space entry and rescue is available locally within Lancashire and Cumbria and nationally in Yorkshire and the Pennine region where wind farms and turbines are more dominant in the landscape.
High Level Specialists can also provide an eyebolt and safety line installation service to the wind farm industry
Eyebolts, safety lines and fall protection systems can be installed to allow rope access safety; this leads to increased economy and a reduction in isolation times if rope access was to be used as the preferred cleaning, maintenance and inspection method on all wind farms.
