Windmills of Bangui- 15 turbines, 326 meters apart in single row, 70 meters high from the ground( equivalent to 23-storey high bldg.)

Midway between the towns of Burgos and Pagudpod is the coastal town of Bangui where you can find the windmills at Bangui Bay. There is no other scenery like this in the Philippines..... wonderful and amazing.

From Laoag City, about 7 minutes after Burgos town center, a billboard on the left side of the road will lead you to Bangui Bay. Turn left and follow the dirt road with the downward slope leading to the beach. After the first turn, you will  be greeted by the awesome  sight of the wind mills. Just follow the road and make a right turn upon entering the beach.

If you miss the sign by the roadside,  proceed to the Bangui Bay observation deck, still on the left side of the road, where a panoramic sight of the wind mills can be enjoyed.

41 meters long blade
You can go farther towards Baruyen Bridge where another signboard is seen right before the bridge, leading to Bangui Bay. It takes about an hour and a half from Laoag city to Bangui..

The Bangui Wind Mills were built by the NorthWind Power Development Corporation tohelp reduce the emission of GHGs -green house gases that causes global warming   and to supply renewable energy to the Ilocos Region. The windmills,the first of its kind in southeast Asia is fast becoming a tourist attraction.  

The turbines are positioned along the shore facing the sea.  They are arranged in a single row, 326 meters apart. The turbine pole height from the ground to the part holding the blades is 70 meters. This approximately equals a 23-storey building. The blades are 41 meters long, giving a rotor diameter of 82 meters and a windswept area of 5,281 square meters.
