SKYLOTEC receives certification from GWO (Global Wind Organisation)

The GWO standard is intended to provide a better level of safety training as regards wind turbine applications. It is for this very reason, in fact, that GWO was formed by leading manufacturers/operating authorities of wind turbines. Catastrophic incidents and accidents are frequently the catalyst for the drawing up of standardised safety measures or for corresponding training. The sinking of the Titanic is undoubtedly the most well-known example here. As a result of this tragic event, the maritime safety regulations were standardised, and this led to a substantial reduction of the risks in hazardous situations and an increase in the level of safety.
