Bruck an der Leith wind farm was constructed in 2000. At the time, a group of dedicated individuals planned and financed this wind farm for reasons of climate protection and to reinforce regional added value.
The foundation for the planning of this wind farm was a wind measurement. Carried out over the course of two years at a height of 42 m, at the top of a pylon, this indicated a very good wind potential.
A particularity of the Bruck an der Leitha wind farm is a wind turbine with viewing platform. Across an interior spiral staircase, the visitor climbs to a height of approx 60 metres. The goal is reached after 279 steps and, through a glazed platform, it is possible to observe the rotor blades, how wind energy is transformed into rotary motion and ultimately how electricity is generated.
Interesting facts on the subject of wind power are conveyed during guided tours at Bruck an der Leitha wind farm.
