Companies in Harlingen and Belgium make the whale together
To make The Whale Fountain for Harlingen, Harlinger companies are working close together. They have the specialist know-how and above all the know exactly what forces of nature come to play in the harbour where The Whale will be situated right in the water among the ships. The engineering and the fabrication of the frame, the foundation and the spraying installation are in safe hands with Adonin, De Boer & De Groot and Visser SMP.
The Whale itself will be made by Zephyr Wildlife in Belgium. They specialize in making realistic replicas and reconstructions of people, animals and objects, often commissioned by natural history and prehistoric museums. A few examples of what they can do:
They even made a beached sperm whale before. The Whale for Harlingen will seem very much alive though!
