LEGOLAND gets its own offshore wind farm
COPENHAGEN -- In LEGOLAND you can see Denmark's largest offshore wind farm first hand - in a miniature version. In 2008, DONG Energy and LEGOLAND opened the energy universe “Energien i Danmark” (Energy in Denmark). This year, the parties are working hard to lay the first LEGO bricks for a miniature version of a small section of the offshore wind farm in the scale 1:20. The construction of the offshore wind farm in LEGOLAND follows the same pattern as the construction of the actual wind farm, so little by little the LEGO model in Miniland becomes more and more complete.
The area with a total of seven wind turbines will be completed in autumn 2013, when the actual Anholt Offshore Wind Farm will also be completed. The area includes an information stand that gives the guests information on the offshore wind farm project , and here you also have the chance to send a fun greeting to your family or friends.
In DONG Energy they are pleased that LEGOLAND once again wants to combine fun rides and LEGO models with educational features. ”Playing and learning go together, and if we can teach our children about eco-friendly/sustainable energy through LEGO bricks, we hopefully reach someone that we wouldn’t have reached otherwise," says Christina Grumstrup Sørensen, Senior Vice President in DONG Energy Wind Power.
