    Wind turbines have emergency exits, but they might not be for the reason you think. • Thanks to Octopus Energy: octopus.energy/octopus-fan-club/ (This video isn't sponsored, but obviously they did let me go up their wind turbine.)

I couldn't find a way to fit this into the video, but rather wonderfully, this turbine is called Octopus Energy's "#1 Fan". Thanks to all the team there, and the rope access team at EWT. This wasn't sponsored, and Octopus had no control over the final video, but obviously they did let me go up their conveniently-branded wind turbine in an effort to boost their brand. (If any other companies would like to show me around their conveniently-branded spectacular facilities, they should definitely get in touch...!)

This seems like a newer version turbine I have seen videos of people stuck on a full turbine and there was no emergency exits on it and they have died

Cool Video! I noticed how you've been using the red line/Arrow on the left side of your thumbnail images for the videos And I was wondering if there's anything significant about the layout or subconscious draw to that template?

Someone in Octopus' marketing department is doing a grand job. We all know the reason they offered is publicity for their brand name, but I'm cool with that, and it gave us a good show! Maybe more businesses with interesting facilities should consider offering tours to famous youtubers, as long as it's all honest and legit why not.

I mean if you gave me the option between tediously climbing down a ladder or just abseiling I'd always pick the Abseil.

I used to climb radio towers for a living but I had the opportunity to climb one of the bigger turbines once, the feeling of being outside on that wet curved surface at the top was way more unnerving than hanging off any piece of angle iron I've hung from my finger tips on.

How would a guy go about getting one of those retired blades, when they replace them? if they are hollow i would like to see if i can use them in a boat design as additional buoyancy. do the cans get replaced too? if so what would they take to get ahold of as well?

Wasn't it because of a Netherland Wind Turbine incident, where two engineers died because of a fire and blocked emergency escape, that these external emergency descendts became mandatory?
