Aerotrope and its founder Chris Hornzee-Jones are simply brilliant in a way that exemplifies the finest engineering: a fusion of practicality, imagination and analysis.
I have worked together with Aerotrope throughout the years, in which wind turbine technology, especially the blades, has gone from crude effectiveness to elegant efficiency.
Aerotrope have done much to facilitate this development, helping to achieve the unexpected and exceeding expectations for such a compact organisation. They have helped some of the largest corporations realise important breakthroughs.
Besides wind energy, Aerotrope’s other work has always seemed inspirational to me, whether artistic installations with Anish Kapoor or speed sailing records. I thoroughly recommend them.
