Going like the wind: an exhibition about wind power for young and old

On Monday 20 May, the Mayor of Ostend, Bart Tommelein, and Energy Minister Tinne Van der Straeten inaugurated Going like the wind, an interactive exhibition which is being hosted at Fort Napoleon in Ostend. 

The exhibition is a result of a collaboration between the Ostend Tourist Office, Elia Transmission Belgium (ETB), DEME and Jan De Nul, and is based on an accompanying booklet that explains the role played by wind turbines in the generation, transmission and distribution electricity. The exhibition follows the path electricity (or electrons) follows from a wind turbine to power plugs in residential homes, with a key role played by the black-legged kittiwake (as well as nature inclusive design) and the Princess Elisabeth Island.

  • This interactive exhibition will run from 20 May to 29 September 2024 at Fort Napoleon in Ostend
  • It highlights the importance of sustainability in relation to the Princess Elisabeth Island project
  • Designed specifically for children and families, it is the first exhibition of its kind in Belgium
