Piero Ceratti developed a concept design for a mountain hut/shelter powered by wind turbines. This alpine hut can be installed in very extreme site, it minimize the point of contact with the rocky ground. the main structure consists of 4 wooden arcs anchored to the rock with 8 steel base plates, secondary structure is realized with 4 couple of l wooden beam fixed to the 4 arcs.
The interior shell is assembled with preformed wooden insulated panels of 20 cm thickness, all the exterior surfaces are covered with red metal seam standing. Energy is provided with 80 micro wind turbines that charge 18 lithium battery pack located over the changing room, water is supplied by 2 water tank filled by a nearby water source.
Eagle nest hut it’s equipped with: 10 bunk beds, 1 wc, 10 backpack storage, 1 changing room, 1 shower, 1 kitchen with 10 seat place.
Alpine hut provides energy with micro wind turbines, through the rotation of 80 micro turbines the generators send electrical energy to the 18 lithium battery packs, where energy is stored for future use. All the fixture within the hut are electrical energy saving, such us led lights.
The hut shell has a high insulation level, thanks to 20 cm thick insulation panel, to win the extreme weather conditions. A very simple aeration system, controlled with mechanical flaps, completes the system. the passage between interior and exterior is regulated by the filter created by the two entry doors, in order to save interior climate comfort.
