Inspection of a helideck and a winching area of an offshore wind farm
In cooperation with Deutsche Windtechnik, airsight carried out a recurring inspection on an offshore platform for its installed helideck and a winching area on a wind turbine. In addition to the existing markings and lighting systems, the fire extinguishing system, the surface condition and the obstacle clearance area of the helideck were also inspected, and a detailed inspection report was submitted to the client.
The purpose of the recurring inspection is to maintain operations for the use of helicopters and to ensure compliance with the applicable safety regulations. The regulations applied here result, among others, from the specifications of ICAO Annex 14 Vol. II and the „Allgemeinen Verwaltungsvorschrift zur Genehmigung der Anlage und des Betriebs von Hubschrauberflugplätzen“ (General Administrative Regulation on the Approval of the Construction and Operation of Helicopter Airfields), which applies specifically in Germany.
With this inspection, the airsight team was able to complete another contract in the offshore sector. We would like to thank Deutsche Windtechnik for the professional cooperation and are looking forward to future projects!
airsight offers initial and recurring inspections for helicopter landing areas and wind turbine operating areas on platforms, ships and wind turbines. In addition, airsight also has special equipment for surface roughness testing (grip testing).
