Creation wind turbine

Since 2013, a mill has stood turning gently in the wind on the roundabout on Prinsenstraat. It is a wind turbine: a metal windmill that turns to face the wind and can therefore run unmanned. Since the 19th century, such mills have been widely used to drain polders, pump water or generate electricity.

The MOT has set up this wind turbine not just to attract people’s notice, but also as a good example of the use of wind power as a natural source of energy.
