The Bahrain World Trade Center

The Bahrain World Trade Center...!!!
It is the first skyscraper to have wind
turbines integrated into the structure of
the building...!!
Three large wind turbines are
suspended between two office towers.
The towers are aerodynamically
tapered to funnel wind and draw air
into the turbines.
This airfoil tapering allows the wind to
enter the turbines at a perpendicular
angle and increases air speed as much as 30percent in each of the 95 ft wide
turbine rotors.
The turbines supply about 15 percent
of the electricity used by the skyscraper
- approximately the same amount of
electricity used by 300 homes..!!
