Within weeks of its launch, the offshore wind industry’s first in-turbine toilet has secured its first entire wind farm order from Swedish energy group Vattenfall.
Every turbine on its Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm will be fitted with a ‘gamechanger’ cubicle developed and manufactured by Pegasus Welfare Solutions (PWS) with patented technology.
Mike Herdman, O&M Project Manager at Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, said: “This is a gamechanger for the industry. PWS came up with a solution and, as our wind farm is a test and demonstration centre of innovation, we are proud to take the lead and be the first to install them on all our Aberdeen turbines to be an exemplar in a global industry.”
“Leading through innovation is key, yet innovation doesn’t have to be complicated. This is an issue that needed addressing and we are collaborating to make it happen.
“The fact that it increases safety and productivity are all important added value to the user and industry.”
