Gemini : Mega Wind Farm Launch

Gemini wanted to give guests a guided tour of its new mega wind farm. But it wasn’t possible to take them 85km offshore into the North Sea. Instead, Gemini commissioned an Igloo 12.5-metre dome to take them on a virtual journey.

The mega wind farm, one of the largest in the world, adds 600MW to Europe’s renewable energy production capacity - enough to meet the needs of 1.5m consumers for the next 15 years.

To mark the successful completion and commissioning, Gemini was keen to give stakeholders a sense of the wind farm’s vast scale. So it produced a 360° film of the 68 square kilometre-facility, and hired-in an Igloo as the focal point of its launch event.
