windmill

Tourists watch a windmill on Semenic mountain, Romania. Four experimental aeolian turbines were mounted here in the 80's, as part of a complex research on Romania's aeolian potential. Built with 80's materials and technology, they are now inactive and abandoned. Having a temperate continental climate, Romania has a high but unexploited aeolian energy potential, measuring an average wind speed of 7-8 m/s in favorable areas, like Semenic.
