MHI Vestas Offshore Wind - June 2014

My new client is the MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, a joint venture between companies Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Vestas Wind Systems. We photographed their new wind turbine V164/8MW; which is the world's largest wind turbine with a height of 140 meters and wingspan of 164 meters. They originally contacted us because they wanted photos with a certain dramatic feel and hero portraits to portray the harsh nature of working off shore, a dramatic feel which just happens to be our speciality. MHI Vestas Offshore Wind bought one of our Scotland photos (see below on flyer), which is now frequently e.g. at their latest press conference, where the photo was used for both name tags and leaflets, the photo is to become their 'image' photo for their website, etc., in the future. In late May we travelled to the wind turbine test center near Thisted to photograph the V164/8MW wind turbine. Photographing from an altitude of 140 meters was an overwhelming experience, realizing how enormous the wings of the wind turbine are when you come up close.

Here are selection of the photos we shot for them:

Some Iphone snaps – a great view is guaranteed from an altitude of 140 meters:
