Transforming wind turbines became wonderful light show in Netherlands

Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and a team of designers and engineers created the Windlicht installation at the Eneco wind farm in Zeeland, in the Netherlands, to “show the beauty of green energy”.


Roosegaarde had designed software that would allow a green laser projected from one turbine to follow a blade on the turbine next to it.

A tracking system predicts where the blade will be, then sends a signal to the hardware attached to the center of the turbine – allowing it to adjust according to the strength of the wind and speed of the rotations.
