Damien Cuello uses the more than 110-foot high view from a 900kW wind turbine to get a better visual inspection of the other 900kW turbine and four other 225kW turbines at 45th Operations Group Detachment 2, Ascension Auxiliary Airfield, South Atlantic Ocean. The power house operator/mechanical associate is tethered and stands on the drive-line to get parallel views of the other generator housings. Cuello is a Computer Sciences Raytheon contract associate in charge of maintenance for the 6-wind turbine facility.
