The world’s largest wind turbine on land is coming to the Netherlands. Standing at a massive 245 metres, with 110-meter-long blades, it’s going to be the tallest wind turbine ever, on land and it will be at the Maasvlakte. This will be temporary though. This will just be a prototype for a huge “mega windmill” that will be in the sea. The Maasvlakte is the perfect place to test it. If all goes well, the building will start in 2019.

The construction is part of the grand plan on clean and renewable energy. The wind turbine would power around 7200 – 8400 homes and that’s a huge step for green energy. In comparison to the other wind turbines, it’s almost twice the size. The only issue is if the wind turbine causes issues for animals and residents. This is especially true with birds, but the flight paths and everything else will be taken into consideration.
