It is adapted to lead downward from inside into the wind turbine tower 1 below. The air collecting door 2 opens inward by the wind pressure outside the chamber 13 and closes by its own weight. The wind collecting door 2 may be forcibly closed by the spring 9. Alternatively, it may be forcibly opened / closed by an opening / closing device that operates by receiving signals from a wind direction and wind force detection sensor (not shown). Further, the air collecting ports 13a of the chamber 13 may be long and large in the vertical direction as shown in FIG.
