Danish software company 43D has developed a visualisation tool, Topos, which is being used for a major wind turbine project comprising 140 wind turbines on the Island of Lewis in Scotland. Topos models the landscape and the planned construction, enabling politicians and the local population to get an accurate picture of the Lewis Wind Farm Project.
 
Preben Holst Mogensen of 43D says: "The interactivity of the model enables people to assess how the wind turbines, control centres and electricity cables will affect the landscape. The population on Lewis can see precisely how the turbines will look, seen from their houses or from the village." "The model has been shown at a number of public meetings and can now be seen at the office of Lewis Wind Farm Project in Stornoway."
 
The DKK 4 bn (USD 720 m) wind turbine project is being developed by AMEC and British Energy Renewables in a 50/50 joint venture, while Siemens Denmark will supply the wind turbines.
 
43D originates from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Aarhus. The firm operates in Denmark and the UK, and plans to expand its business throughout Europe. The news was reported by Comon.
