CALL FOR DONATIONS 2018

Instead of sending gifts to our customers, partners and suppliers, Hailo Wind Systems GmbH & Co. KG decided to support the Mukoviszidose Förderverein Gießen e. V. with its annual donation.

Mucodiscidosis, also known as cystic fibrosis, is the most common hereditary metabolic disease and is triggered by a genetic defect. As a result of this genetic defect, an abnormal, viscous mucus builds up in various organs which can cause severe impairments, especially in infancy or childhood. According to the current state of knowledge, cystic fibrosis cannot be healed.

Cystic fibrosis is a serious illness which is usually very distressing for those affected, strongly impinging on their quality of life! However, as there are insufficient public funds available, it is not possible to provide appropriate care for patients or perform intensive research without additional donations!

Both the staff and management at Hailo Wind System GmbH & Co. KG have agreed on an initiative by the work council to make thes staff donation to the Mukoviszidose Förderverein Gießen e. Vthis year. The amount raised will be doubled by our owner, Mr Sebastian Loh, at his own expense.

Please support us and the research of mucoviscidose now! All information about the project can be found on www.hailo-windsystems.com/mucoviscidose. For more information about Mukoviszidose Förderverein Gießen e. V. can be found on www.kinderatmung.de.

NEW CEO: CHANGE AT THE TOP OF HAILO WIND SYSTEMS

Johannes-Weg
Johannes Weg,
CEO Hailo Wind Systems

Hailo Wind Systems, one of the international technology and market leader for access systems and service lifts in wind turbines, has appointed Johannes Weg as new general manager. He will replace Dirk Mischnick, who has been managing the company fortunes since the beginning of 2013, on 31 March 2018.

Under Dirk Mischnick, who aside from Hailo Wind Systems GmbH & Co. KG is also responsible for the subsidiaries in the USA, Brazil and China, sales were multiplied across all locations. In the last years, he extended the successful internationalisation of the group which is crucial for the wind business, whereby he set great value on a strong team spirit and international communication.

With Johannes Weg, an experienced professional will succeed Dirk Mischnick. His professional career includes decades of working in various sectors, for example as technical director, factory manager and managing director of several companies. With his strong background, Johannes Weg is best equipped to meet the challenges that the wind energy business currently faces. Due to his experience in mechanical engineering and energy technology in Asia and North America, he will provide important impulses for the future direction of Hailo Wind Systems.

“Hailo Wind Systems has developed very well in the last years,” says Johannes Weg. “However, legal requirements and the market environment strongly influence the wind energy business. Therefore, it’s important to assure our European business carefully and to develop our international subsidiaries and our product and service portfolio at the same time.”

Dirk Mischnick has laid the cornerstone for this strategic approach. “We’ve expanded our product and service portfolio as well as accelerated the internationalisation. I’m glad that I can place my position into the hands of someone under whose leadership this path will be consistently pursued,” says Dirk Mischnick.

MAX BÖGL COMPLETES THE WORLD'S HIGHEST WIND TURBINE – USING CLIMBING TECHNOLOGY FROM HAILO WIND SYSTEMS

Gaildorf_Referenzbild_Quelle_Max_Boegl

Photographer: Holger Hessenthaler

Near the German city of Stuttgart, wind turbine manufacturer Max Bögl is impressively demonstrating how the perfect combination of state-of-the-art wind and hydro power can be achieved. Since 26/10/2017, the highest onshore wind turbine in the world has been standing there, setting a number of technological standards – and of course equipped with state-of-the-art climbing technology from Hailo Wind Systems. For the first time, the new storage concept uses the tower foundations as water reservoirs.

The hub height of 178 metres and the total height of 246.5 metres is also possible thanks to the natural water reservoir used there, according to the company. In Gaildorf, Germany, in addition to the wind farm with its 4x 3.4 MW systems (from GE), an innovative power plant concept is being developed: the water battery.

Via underground pressurised pipe lines, the four wind turbines are connected to a pumped storage power plant in the valley, which supplies a capacity of up to 16 megawatts with three turbines. The electric storage capacity of the power plant is designed for a total of 70 megawatt hours. All in all, the company expects wind-dependent annual electricity generation of around 42 GWh.

In Gaildorf, modern laddersfall arrest systems and service lifts from Hailo Wind Systems are in use. The ladders were equipped with the modern H-50.2 fall arrest system, and in the interior of all the wind turbines, the innovative cable-guided GLOBALlifts are installed.

As a supplier of the climbing technology installed there, we are proud to have made a contribution to this innovative project and to be a partner of Max Bögl.

HUSUM WIND 2017

Hailo Wind Systems presents innovative technology and services for the interna-tional wind energy industry

 

  • Extended range of services, training and qualification measures
  • A ten-square-metre training tower with state-of-the-art fall arrest systems and innovative service lifts
  • GLOBALlift H1: The most compact service lift of its type

From 12 to 15 September, Hailo Wind Systems, the preferred partner of international wind turbine manufacturers and opera-tors, will be presenting its innovative wind turbine access sys-tems, service lifts and a range of new services such as more detailed winch and crane inspections as well as more informa-tion about its wind turbine servicing training courses at the HUSUM Wind 2017 in Hall 5, stand B43. The company wants to ensure that wind turbines all over the world operate safely and are reliably maintained. Visitors can learn more about the latest technology and services for the international wind energy industry at Hailo Wind Systems trade fair stand, which extends over 72 square metres. All of the currently available fall arrest systems and the innovative service lifts can be tested live on the training tower, which measures almost ten metres. Visitors can also try out the innovative service lift GLOBALlift H1.
The GLOBALlift H1 is the most compact wind turbine service lift of its type. The cable-guided one-man cabin was designed especially with the conditions in North Africa and parts of the USA in mind, where towers with low platform access widths are usual. Despite its compact size, it is as safe and reliable as all of the other models in the GLOBALlift H range. "We make no compromises when it comes to the safety aspect. That is why we apply the highest standards to all of the products and ser-vices we offer all over the world," says CEO Dirk Mischnick.
In addition, the wind power specialist will also be presenting the advantages of its global production and service concept, give insights into the expansion of its service business and pro-vide an overview of the extensive training and qualification measures offered by its in-house Safety And Rescue Academy (S.A.R.A.). The trade fair visitors can meet the Hailo Wind Sys-tems staff in person in two generously sized lounge areas, and end their day at the exhibition with a relaxed chat.

HAILO WIND SYSTEMS EXTENDS PRODUCTION CAPACITIES

Hailo Wind Systems: Considerably more space and optimised production facilities.

More space, considerably optimised production facilities and increased flexibility – with the move to a new site, Hailo Wind Systems is ready for future growth. The new site, also located in Haiger, offers the technology and market leader in the area of wind turbine access systems and service lifts considerably more space for its offices and production facilities. An extension scheduled for next year will offer even more potential.

The company has invested not only in the development of the new site but also in the optimisation and modernisation of the production facilities, as its new manufacturing area was designed taking the latest standards on board with the help of LEAN workshops and experts. "We now have product-specific production lines that ensure an enhanced workflow," says Hailo Wind Systems plant manager Olaf Oppermann. The optimisation of the production facilities is a result of the positive development of the business. "Ever since the company was established, we have seen an increased demand and have achieved new records every year," explains CEO Dirk Mischnick.

The move was not only inspired by the need to increase the production capacities but also with customer satisfaction in mind: "We want to grow with our existing customers and also gain new ones," says Dirk Mischnick. "That is why we are investing not only in the extension of our production capacities but also specifically in the permanent further development of our product portfolio, as the wind power market is extremely dynamic – and we intend to continue to be just as dynamic! Most recently, Hailo Wind Systems has optimised its climb assist H-Lift and also several of its fall arrest systems. The eLearning courses and the product catalogue are now also available in many additional languages, such as Turkish and Chinese.

The modern offices at the Technology Park Kalteiche are scheduled for further extension in 2018 to also provide space for the training centre, the Safety And Rescue Academy (S.A.R.A.) and the training tower, which is 16 metres tall and enables professionale traiings under real working conditions, so they can also move to the new site.

Hailo Wind Systems GmbH & Co. KG can now be found at Kalteiche-Ring 18 in 35708 Haiger (Hesse), Germany.

SUCCESSFUL YEAR FOR HAILO WIND SYSTEMS

Hailo Wind Systems can look back on its most successful business year ever: the company's more than 10 per cent increase in turnover both in Germany as well as on the international markets reflects the high level of importance the wind energy industry is attaching to safety aspects when it comes to wind turbine servicing. This successful business development has led to an increase in the workforce in Germany.

"With our well-designed products and tried and tested systems, we ensure that service technicians can work in a safe environment as they check and service wind turbines," says Christopher Bahl, Marketing Hailo Wind Systems. "2016 was not only a very successful business year for us – we have also set the course for the future with new products and the standardisation of our various subsidiaries."

One highlight for Hailo Wind Systems was the Wind Energy trade fair in Hamburg, where the company exhibited numerous innovations for the international wind energy industry. The company's latest developments were demonstrated in practice on a multi-functional training tower that was almost 5.5 metres high: five tracks with different fall arrest systems and not just one but two new service lifts, including the new "E-Lift" that reduces the effort needed to ascend and descend from wind turbines by 50 per cent – and therefore ensures that more turbines can be serviced in less time.
"The response to our trade fair display in Hamburg was phenomenal," says Christopher Bahl. "Next year, we will double our trade fair activities." In 2017, Hailo Wind Systems will exhibit its products and services for the first time in India and Japan in order to continue to drive the company's international growth.

WORLD PREMIERES AT WINDENERGY 2016

hailo_windsystems_e_lift

Hailo Wind Systems will exhibit its innovative access technology and fall arrest systems products again at the worlds most important wind energy trade fair, WindEnergy in Hamburg.

SERVICELIFT AND LADDERS FROM HAILO WIND SYSTEMS IN THE WORLD’S TALLEST WIND TURBINE

Nordex has installed the world’s tallest wind turbine to date in Hausbay in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. With a hub height of 164 metres and a rotor length of 65.5 metres, the N131/3300 wind power system reaches a total height of just under 230 metres. Installed in this world’s tallest wind tubine is state-of-the-art technology by Hailo Wind Systems, including our Servicelift TOPLift L2 and suitable aluminium ladders.

With a total height of just under 230 metres and a lower blade tip height of 100 metres, the N131/3300 will be able to make use of air layers offering a greater yield, thus increasing annual output. At the same time, it is exposed to less turbulence in hilly and forest-rich terrain.

SAFETY AND RESCUE ACADEMY’S GWO CERTIFICATION RENEWED - AUDIT SHOWS 98% PARTICIPANT SATISFACTION

Hailo Wind Systems’ Safety And Rescue Academy (S.A.R.A.) continues to satisfy the demanding training requirements of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO). In the GWO’s annual audit, Hailo was confirmed as meeting the international standard for First Aid, Fire Awareness, Working at Height and Manual Handling training courses for the 3rd time – with 98% participant satisfaction.

The GWO certificate forms the basis for ensuring that safety-relevant training courses in the wind industry comply with uniform standards. It was initiated by various renowned manufacturers with the aim of significantly improving training and safety levels for wind farm workers. Ever since, the GWO has conducted a one-day annual audit of all training providers seeking certification – a process during which the Safety And Rescue Academy’s training programme also undergoes critical scrutiny of its compliance with the GWO standards. Each year, areas such as training documentation and preparation, the practical implementation of the training courses, the structures of the management system, the training equipment and the training infrastructure are reevaluated.
“We are proud to have received the GWO certificate for the third time in a row,” says Michael Herre, senior trainer at the Safety And Rescue Academy. “Everyone who takes part in our programmes is trained in accordance with high international safety standards.” A safe work environment in on and offshore wind farms is thus guaranteed. Hailo Wind Systems performed particularly well in terms of its well-prepared training programmes, the high standard of its training materials and equipment and its highly qualified trainers from both industry and the fire and rescue services. Hailo Wind Systems’ internal management system also performed very well in the audit. All in all, the auditing committee rated user satisfaction at 98%. “We see this outcome as an endorsement of our concept – because a consistently high focus on quality is the only way to ensure satisfied participants. We are delighted with this outstanding result,” says Michael Herre.
In addition, the realistic work environment provided by the training tower in Haiger ensures a high level of qualification for all participants. The courses available include user training on ladder and access equipment, assembly training for ladder technology and service lifts or rescue exercises involving a shaft or wind turbine. Besides its practical training courses, Hailo Wind Systems also offers an e-learning platform for its Safety And Rescue Academy that enables participants to take part in selected courses online at any time.

RELEASE OF ALL SERVICE LIFTS

On 18 January 2016, the Brandenburg State Office for Occupational Safety issued a general ruling, which leads to further implications for the use of the service lifts with components from Tractel Greifzug GmbH. The basis of this general ruling is an accident report by DEKRA.

Note, that the guidelines contained the general ruling are mandatory and must be observed in Germany. Subject to compliance with the following conditions, we hereby release all Hailo Wind Systems service lifts with components from Tractel Greifzug GmbH for an unlimited period.
 

SUSPENSION OF THE USE OF ALL SERVICELIFTS WITH COMPONENTS FROM TRACTEL GREIFZUG GMBH FOR PASSENGER

We have been informed that an accident occurred on 28 September 2015 while a servicelift was being used in a wind turbine in Storkow, Brandenburg (Germany). Tragically, one employee of a service company was fatally injured and another severely injured in the accident.

Hailo Wind Systems is not the manufacturer of the servicelift involved in the accident and has not carried out any service activities in that wind turbine.

From what we understand, the servicelift involved in the accident was equipped with a hoist and a fall arrest device (Type BSO) installed by Tractel Greifzug GmbH that are also used in
some older models from Hailo Wind Systems. As investigations by the local authorities are still ongoing, we do not know if this safety component had anything to do with the
accident. We explicitly distance ourselves from speculation on the possible cause of the accident.

General note:

Prior to the use of any Hailo Wind Systems servicelift – regardless of its hoist or fall arrest device – we expressly warn that they may only be used in accordance with proper procedures, regulation, the operating manual and a proper pre use verification. Furthermore, all maintenance and inspection intervals must be within due date. Operators need to hold a valid Hailo Wind Systems user certification to operate the servicelift. Under all these preconditions, we do not have any specific information that the use of our servicelifts is unsafe. At present we are not aware of any defects in our servicelifts.

Nevertheless, in light of the ongoing investigations Hailo Wind Systems has - as a precaution - decided to temporarily suspend the use of all servicelifts equipped with components from Tractel Greifzug GmbH for passenger transportation. Only material handling is allowed.

Hailo Wind Systems always treats safety and reliability as its number one priority. We are in contact with the responsible authorities and companies in order to get additional information.
We will inform you as soon as we have any further details. We also reserve the right to take further actions.
