One big ugly wind turbine have destroyed the view from Bulbjerg and now the wild feeling is gone!. This new experimental wind turbine is only the first at the newly established test-centre at Østerild in the north-western part of Denmark. Stretching clear of the horizon, this new wind turbine is 197 metres high with world record 75 metres wings with a total wingspan of 154 metres - the same as three football fields. The tranquillity of the landscape has gone and flashing strobe aviation lights turn the wilderness into a city of lights at night. Transmission towers and lines string across the countryside like a giant spider web is not a pretty sight!. In the coming years, extreme wind turbines up to 250 metres will rise and destroy this once so great scenic landscape.
