Draft Scope/Description:

ASME A17.8/CSA B44.8 applies to elevators permanently installed in a wind turbine tower to provide vertical transportation of authorized personnel and their tools and equipment only.

Such elevators are typically subjected to extreme temperatures, humidity variations, and substantial horizontal motions where, by reason of their limited use and the types of construction of the structures served, full compliance with ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Part 2 is not practicable or necessary.
