Wind plant or work of art? Both, if electricity company NUON has its way. Twelve 500 kW Nordtank turbines being erected on the site of the now dismantled SEP utility wind farm are to be coloured deep red and placed in a fish bone formation. The colour and configuration have been developed by an artist working for engineering consultant Energy Connection of Delft together with the provincial commission for landscaping. Deep red was chosen because blue made the turbines float in the air and every colour of green would have clashed with the landscape.
