We have a new 1.5 MW Wind Turbine in town. I has a "Lift"" inside the tower to lift stuff (tools, oil for the gearbox, etc) up to the top for servicing the machinery. There is also a ladder inside for the personnel to use to climb to the top. (185 feet)

Someone referred to the "Lift" as an "Elevator". He was chastised because.... IF... IT Was an "Elevator" it would have to be routinely inspected as such by the STATE and meet certain criteria for "Elevators". Just sayin.....NB
