Abstract

Dikes are attractive locations to construct wind turbines. Wind turbines can accentuate the dike as a linear element in the landscape. Dikes are often windy spots, that are accessible for construction and maintenance using the existing work road along the dike. With the construction of wind turbines on a dike, the district water board contributes to a more sustainable world.
