Bahrain World Trade Center: Harnessing Wind Energy – A Post-occupancy Evaluation

Ian Milne
Senior Design Director
Atkins, Hong Kong

The Bahrain WTC was the world’s first application of large-scale wind turbine incorporation in a tall building. The complex has now been in operation since 2009. It has successfully achieved the goal of producing large-scale power production from Wind Power in a tall building. This is an achievement that has since only rarely been replicated around the world, one of the few other examples being the Pearl River Tower. The presentation considered how this was achieved in a commercial building that was designed and constructed using a demanding fast track program; the specific context of the project that permitted this; and the results of the validation period which extended after completion.
