Wind Turbines Now Spinning On Bahrain World Trade Center

This is a quick post to let you know that the Bahrain World Trade Center has turned on all three of its huge wind turbines simultaneously.

The three massive turbines, measuring 29 meters in diameter, are supported by bridges spanning between the complex’s two towers. Through its positioning and the unique aerodynamic design of the towers, the prevailing on-shore Gulf breeze is funneled into the path of the turbines, helping to create power generation efficiency.

The wind turbines will deliver approximately 11-15% of the energy needs of the building, or 1100 to 1300 megawatt-hours per year — enough to provide light in 300 homes for over a year.
