How to fix rigging equipment for a wind farm
A new video from an expert has highlighted the complexities of rigging wind turbines.
The expert, who did not wish to be named, said there was a lot of work to be done before wind turbines could be rigged safely and effectively.
He said the best way to ensure they were safe was to install an independent inspection system.
“The best way is to do a complete inspection of the system every 30 days, then have a new inspection done every year,” the expert said.
You can’t just put it back together again and expect that it will work.
There needs to be an independent system that checks the integrity of the turbines and the people who are performing the work.
There is no reason to believe this system will work, he said.
“I think it’s a big mistake to think that just having an inspection and having an independent review will prevent something from happening.”
The video, entitled The New Wind Tower Solution, is an analysis of the systems and methods that have been tested to make sure wind turbines are working properly.
Its content is satirical and has been taken out of context to make a point about wind turbines being a new technology.
I hope this video gives people the chance to think about the problems, the challenges and the solutions that we are going to need, the expert told the BBC.

A spokeswoman for the company said the company had a wide range of safety standards, and was taking steps to make our turbines safer.
We believe that there are lessons we can learn from this incident to help reduce the risk of an incident in the future, she said.
The video also features footage from the Australian Wind Energy Association.
