The Off-shore Wind turbine lofts will provide constant residence for technicians for taking care and maintenance of the turbines.
“As offshore wind turbines increase dramatically in size, the need for expert monitoring becomes more and more important. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines distributed over a large body of water: endless arrays of turbine towers create a surreal grid in a lonely landscape. This odd and isolated site often remains hidden in the vastnest of the aquatic realm – seen only by the few, who are destined to serve the long lasting swing of the white giants.
Wind Turbine Loft is a concept that proposes the installation of a residential unit within the volume of the nacelle that would provide constant shelter for a group of technicians taking care of the functional integrity of the turbine.”
