Oslo, Norway- Tuesday was the first mini-wind turbines on the roof of the Post House, also known as post transfer building. The project is a collaboration between the U.S. manufacturer Wind Stream, Entra Property and SINTEF, where the post office gets eight wind turbines on the terrace of 24 floor.
Entra Property jobs to look at new solutions - both on the development and implementation side. This is in line with our strategic commitment to the environment. We assemble now eight wind turbines on the roof of the post office to determine the contribution of this measure may have to reduce energy demand in the future, says project leader Carl Henrik Borchsenius in Malls Real Estate, which owns the building.
Currently, Entra no estimates how much light and heat wind turbines can provide.
How much energy the plant will produce, yet hanging in midair. Almost literally. We would like to contribute to capacity building - and to document how we can use renewable energy in our buildings. This is important to find out how we can produce energy for use in buildings, says Entra director Rune Olsų.
