Wind turbines – Part 30: Safety of Wind Turbine Generator Systems (WTGs) - General principles for design


This Technical Specification (TS) specifies the Essential Health and Safety Requirements (ESHR) related to the design of horizontal Wind Turbine Generator (WTG), with rotor area ≥200 m2.

The WTG-design has to be in compliance with the requirements for safe operation, maintenance and repair without putting persons at risk.
The design of the WTGS shall consider intended use, erection, dismantling, inspection and maintenance.

Identification of ESHR, their risk assessment and risk reduction are done by using the principles from the standard ISO 12100 following its structure for a C-standard (machines safety standard dealing with safety requirement for a particular machine or group of machines).

The measures adopted to fulfil the EHSR shall apply with the following principles in the order given:
• eliminate or reduce risks
• take the necessary protective measures in relation to risks that cannot be eliminated
• inform users of the residual risks due to any shortcomings of the protective measures adopted, indicate whether any particular training is required and specify any need to provide personal protective equipment.

This TS should be used together with the appropriate IEC and ISO standards.
