3. Description
3.1 Purpose
3.3 Exclusions
The service lift purpose is to transport persons plus
their tools and equipment to the most convenient
height for performing work in wind turbine generators (WTG).
Its use is limited to personnel authorised by AVANTI
holding the relevant training certificates.
The access to the WTG and consequently to the
service lift is controlled and forbidden to public
access.
The service lift is used primarily to transport
technicians, their tools and spare parts from the
bottom platform (or lowest accessible point) to the
top platform (or highest accessible point).
It is also used to access intermediate platforms
where inspection and service of WTG connecting
bolts and other equipment is made.
A declaration of conformity of the complete system
integrated in the WTG can only be issued after the
system has been fully incorporated. In case the
necessary information for the evaluation is not
supplied to AVANTI, a declaration of incorporation
shall be issued.
3.2 Scope
For example, the emergency lighting along the
WTG shall be considered, in order to guarantee a
safe evacuation from WTG in case of emergency.
This manual contains instructions for
three different versions of the
Pegasus lift:
•
Pegasus CE bucket type version and Pegasus
CE full sliding door version, which are certified to
Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
•
Pegasus AECO version, which is certified to ASME
A17.7/CSA B44.7-2007.
The scope of the certificate is:
• a rack and pinion service lift,
• a ladder (mast),
• the necessary accessories to allow the
connection to the WTG and the control and
safety functions described in the manual. The
accessories include: ladder supports (ties to
the tower brackets), rest platforms, mechanical
stops, safe zone plates, platform control boxes
and other electrical equipment. It also includes
the hardware necessary to make the connections, stickers and warning signs.
• and the platform fences.
The ladder sections, their supports, related accessories and platform fences may be assembled to
the tower in the WTG factory and supplied later on
site for final installation.
The service lift is supplied pre-assembled and may
be supplied to the WTG factory or on site directly.
Final assembly, adjustment, installation and
verification of the service lift shall be made on site.
10 AVANTI Service Lift for Wind Turbines
In such case, equipment with missing information
shall be specifically out of the scope of the
certificate, but will be needed for the safe
integration and use of the service lift. The WTG
manufacturer will be responsible for ensuring full
compliance of the system once integrated in the
tower. To do so, the instructions and WTG
requirements stated in this manual shall be
observed.
The WTG manufacturer’s risk assessment
shall include a service lift integration study.
STOP
The service lift must not be used outdoor or
in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Keep the service lift in its original packaging until it is
mounted on the WTG tower section.
Avoid direct contact of package with floor by placing a
pallet under it. Position the pallet on a stable ground.
Store the service lift in a dry place and protected from
rain (i.e. in roofed areas). In corrosive environments (i.e.
near the sea or in foggy places) store indoors.
Store in a clean and ventilated place, free of negative
influences of chemical and water vapours or other
corrosive substances.
Store between -30ºC and 80ºC (survival temperature). If
possible, avoid sudden temperature changes.
Handle the service lift with care and store in a safe place
in order to avoid unintended damages.
Do not stack.
Should any of these conditions not be maintained, the
service lift could be spoilt with dirt or other substances,
which could start corrosion before even the service lift is
put into operation.
Store the package so that its labelling is clearly readable.
Before using the service lift, if it has not been used for a
long period of time:
• Clean all the parts of the service lift of accumulated
dust.
• Grease the shafts, pinions and rack.
11. Installation
11.1 WTG requirements
The following information is necessary for the correct
integration of the service lift inside a wind turbine tower.
11.1.1 Height and angle
The service lift can be installed on towers up to 150 m
high, and with a maximum inclination angle to the ladder
axis of ±2º and of ±0,5º for every 3 m of ladder.
11.1.2 Lift holes at platforms and air gap to tower parts
The service lift must have an air gap of at least 25 mm
around it along the tower to avoid collision with tower
components and to avoid finger trapping. The wind
tower manufacturer must verify this as part of the
integration process not only in the static position but
also considering possible movement of components
inside the tower as a consequence of the tower sway.
10.2 After installation of service lift on
WTG tower section
After installing the service lift in the WTG tower section,
confirm that the service lift is properly attached to the
ladder (i.e. pinions are engaged with rack, and rollers
and anti-derailment brackets are mounted).
Close top and bottom holes of WTG tower sections with
covers to prevent water entry.
10.3 During WTG tower erection
≥ 25
During the erection of the WTG tower sections, and
while there is risk of rain entry, protect the service lift
with wrapping film to prevent water entry.
If WTG tower erection is left uncompleted, close the top
hole of the WTG tower section with a cover.
In case that the inside of the WTG tower sections is
washed, protect the service lift with wrapping film to
prevent water entry.
≥ 25
≥ 25
10.4 After service lift is put into service
