vertigo


The leading provider of rope access services in Australia, Vertigo provides solutions to tasks that are complicated by access difficulties. A specialist in wind farm maintenance, our innovative approach has been the driving force behind our success over the past 20 years.

Regardless of the scope or size of the project, Vertigo can provide the solution, whether that be inspections, surveys, cleaning, installation or training.

Wind farm turbine blade inspections and maintenance

We provide a range of rope access services for the inspection and maintenance of wind farm turbine blades.

For example, we offer safe and secure inspections, maintenance and cleaning of the wind turbine blades and towers, either onshore or offshore. We aim to cause minimal site disruption, by quickly setting and packing up. As the need for extra machinery, cranes and scaffolding is eliminated, this reduces any turbine downtime.

Our rope access team are fully qualified and experienced to inspect, repair, paint and clean wind turbines blades and towers, with a quick, efficient and therefore cost-effective service.

All of our wind farm projects are conducted to meet client specifications, with the highest safety controls and IRATA international standards in place.

Rope access systems

We specialise in providing multi-disciplined rope access project services to a wide range of industries accross the world.

Our rope access techniques are efficient, flexible, and above all safe; we continue to contribute significantly to solving high or difficult access problems, wherever they might be.

Through our experience of challenging high-level and difficult access work, we are able to provide lateral planning and operational solutions to both private and government sectors.

Rope access systems minimise disruption at ground level, enhancing site flexibility and maximising overall site productivity.

Our multi-skilled workforce are trained and regularly re-certified under the internationally recognised Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) standards. At Vertigo, we are proud of our full membership with IRATA, which was gained through extensive initial assessment and is continually maintained through training, development and periodic audits.

Before every project, we prepare clear and concise work method statements, risk assessments and safety audits, in accordance with our occupational health and safety policies and safe working procedures.
