|French term or phrase: nacelle de nettoyage|
|Hi - me again with another question from this text that was supposed to be legal and then turned out to have all kinds of construction terminology in it...|
At any rate: "nacelle de nettoyage" is simply listed under the heading "nettoyage et maintain" under the building description. No further context

cleaning platform, cradle, pod
From the GTD, "nacelle", I found "cradle" and "platform" which may suit your context. A "nacelle" is generally something concave, hollow, which you can stand on or sit on/in. Whilst "platform" is flat, and generally open, it may work.
"Pod" is a freebie from my humble self, a term sometimes used in mulithull contruction terminology (where the French uses "nacelle") to describe a small living unit suspended between two floaters/hulls in the case of catamarans and set on the central hull in the case of a trimaran. In any event, it is almost always used to describe a closed unit. Depending on the extent to which your "nacelle" is open/closed, either "platform" or "pod" could work. "Cradle" may be good as a half-way house solution if you have no idea as it works for anything concave - a platform with sides - and coudl suffice for something which is almost closed.

Maya is right. This one has been asked before. I think we all often forget to consult the glossaries first, me included!

Au sol, le laser et son groupe de refroidissement (deux petites machines cubiques qui peuvent également être placées sur des échafaudages) ; dans les mains de l'opérateur un outil d'environ 1 kg, comparable à une caméra légère; entre les deux, un câble de 10 à 12 mètres protégeant les fibres optiques (ce qui n'a pas empêché une démonstration, au Liban, sur des stèles situées au haut d'une falaise dont le nettoyage s'opérait à partir d'une nacelle placée à 70 mètres de haut grâce à des fibres prolongées d'autant).
On the ground, there is the laser and its cooling unit (two small cube-shaped machines which can also be placed on scaffolding); the operator has a handheld instrument weighing about 1 kg, comparable to a light camera; positioned between the two there is a cable between 10 and 12 metres long to protect the optical fibres. (This has not prevented a demonstration, in the Lebanon, on stelae situated at the top of a cliff, where cleaning was carried out from a cage positioned at a height of 70 metres using suitably extended fibres).
