The Dutch wind turbine is a model of contemporary architecture. The upright building is a megaproject, it is not only impressive as a building, but also innovative and sustainable. It adds a unique landmark to the city, making the skyline even more spectacular.
33 companies and research institutes have joined forces to develop the Dutch wind turbine. These organisations are all working on a programme aimed at combining, scaling and marketing all promising technical innovations in the field of water, energy and building technology.
The building is designed for reuse and is manufactured with materials from the Rotterdam region. Solar and wind energy are used to achieve a positive energy balance for the building. Biogas is produced from organic waste. Rainwater is also collected for further use. It will become a global symbol of sustainability and in the field of Smart City development.
The Dutch windmill will be a spectacular attraction. Visitors from all over the world can enjoy an unprecedented view of Rotterdam and the surrounding area from one of the roller coaster cabins.
