A vertical oriented wind turbine must be fixed on a rotable mount. Otherwise it cannot use well the wind. And by such a mount, its blades would destroy a zip line running from its pinnacle to the ground.

Interestingly the first transmission aerial system of Eiffel Tower was similiar to the proposed zip line

This is one of the best projects I have ever seen. This would make The Eiffel Tower even more beautiful.

Glad this did not actually happen with the Eiffel Tower, but I do hope that an Eiffel Tower replica with this design is built in another city like Djibouti City since Djibouti is hoping to become the next Dubai and Djibouti was once a French colony. The Eiffel Tower design with a hooverdisc would be an iconic landmark for Djibouti City, which currently has no recognizable landmarks.
