ESTA publishes best practice guide

ESTA has published best practice guidelines for the safe transportation and erection of onshore wind turbines.

In an attempt to reduce the number of onshore wind farm accidents, ESTA has been working on the document with VDMA Power Systems and the European Matierals Handling Federation, FEM, for over three years.

For a limited time, the 52-page guide is available to download free of charge from ESTA’s website here.

“The next step is for us to talk to the developers, utilities, clients – and their contractors and consultants – and to persuade them that it is in their interests to ensure that their projects adopt best practice, as we have set out,” said David Collett, ESTA president.

“We are trying to highlight the risks and negative impact of poor planning. One of the features of the document and our work is to stress the importance of early engagement of all of the firms working on a project, and especially the transport and lifting companies."
