Skylotec, a Scandinavian manufacturer of personal protective equipment, says it will open a new training center in Sweden.
According to Skylotec, its new training center makes it possible for the company to provide training in fall protection, height rescue, as well as training for working on roofs, in confined spaces and in enclosed environments.
This is the company's nineteenth facility to be put into operation. In the wind sector, the company notes, turbine assembly and maintenance work can be challenging, as the danger of falling is a daily threat.
The company also announced that Swedish energy company Vattenfall – which is planning to put 70 offshore wind turbines into operation in the North Sea in 2017 – will use the new training center.
