Denmark is famous for all the windturbines around the country. Almost 55% of our electricity comes from the wind. We have a lot of windturbines both on shore and off shore. Actually some of the largest offshore wind farms in the world are located around the coast of Denmark (http://www.dongenergy.com/en/our-business/wind-power/where-we-operate/anholt)
Everyone also knows the world largest windmill producer in the world, the danish company Vestas.
So what could be a better place to install UBNT equipment than on a windmill ? There's lots of them, they're large and they're everywhere ?
Typical danish countryside with windturbines....
The problem is that drilling a hole in the tower for a mount is NO GO.
Instead I got in contact with a company (it actually arises from Vestas) that sells these very strong magnets.
Their engineer created a special mount in aluminium for us.
Now we can install a lot of equipment on the windmills without drilling holes in the tower and breaking the sealing/painting.
You can contact the company here: Vlabwind
The special aluminium mount with magnets and an AF24 mounted (This tower is on the ground, why it's horizontal, not vertical)
Each magnet can hold 350 kg.... 6 in total is used for this special mount. 2 for each "foot"
We were only 2 persons trying it out, so no picture of the mount holding both of us. (We did test it, and the mount was rock solid. Didn't move at all...)
If you want to remove it all again, no problem. A special tool is used to remove the magnet...
Nothing to see when magnet is remove. Only a white clean spot :-)
Also cable trays will be installed with the help of smaller magnets.....
The magnets are versatile. You can use them several places as long as there's metal to mount them on....
I will post my first install in a windturbine when done. First we need the weather to be a little better here in Denmark. To cold at the moment....
