Bahrain World Trade Center • The most impressive feature is the three massive wind turbines situated

Bahrain World Trade Center

The most impressive feature is the three massive wind turbines situated between the two towers comprising the main building

Each of these 80-foot turbines projects from a bridge between towers

The shape of the towers themselves channels and accelerates air moving between them which will help the building generate even more power.

It is by far the largest wind-powered design incorporated into a massive building project to date.

GREEN Technology

Solar Tower

It is Europe’s first commercial power station to harness the energy of the sun.

How does it work? The sun’s rays are all directed at a single point of the tower and turn water at that point into steam. The steam in turn moves through turbines and generates energy. A strange but very functional process.
