Oh, great news.. I was wondering what the story was, as the fans don't work very often..

I guess now we can expect to see them turning more often..

A great sign indeed!

And they don't seem to cause any noise, for all those sceptics that said the fans will never work or be practical..

I tried hard to listen when passing on top of the multi storey, near fitness first, right under the bottom fan..

There was no sound, except for an intermittent very subtle whistle which i'm guessing came from the fan..

I have watched CNN "Quest Mean Business" all this week and not once did I see the 3 wind turbines move. Is there very little wind in Bahrain? Or have the building's owner decided to stop the blades from moving because of the distraction of moving shadow to its occupants?

I think green building is good for the environment, but what is the point if 90% of the time the wind turbines are not generating electricity!!
