In the initial phase of the project, several concepts were developed for installation at the pier of Scheveningen (NL), but eventually, the Tulip was selected as the best overall compromise between aesthetical design and energy production.
The Tulip is a 18m high vertical axis wind turbine, which combines aerodynamic efficiency with an architectural design approach. This turbine is slowly rotating, noiseless and decorative, all factors which are essential for acceptance in populated areas. This highly visual product is a perfect landmark for sustainable companies, carbon neutral areas and educational institutions. The first edition is designed for a rated power of 5 Kilowatt, and a yearly energy yield of up to 9.4 MWh, which is enough to power several households.
