Three-turbine Wind Tower provides near zero downtime.

December 15, 2014

Integrating 3 turbines in row or series, INVELOX™ Wind Funnel System captures, concentrates, and accelerates wind before delivering it to turbines safely located at ground level. Multiple turbines in single tower means nearly zero operational downtime since maintenance can be done on one turbine while others continue producing energy. In addition, with INVELOX capacity factor at 60–90% and turbines installed at ground level, maintenance costs and failure are greatly minimized. Read More

Wind Turbine yields high energy at low-wind sites.

October 2, 2014

Delivering 3.3 MW, SWT-3.3-130 has 130 m dia rotor and optimizes energy extraction in low- to moderate-wind velocities. Direct-drive PMG generator operates with permanent magnets to enhance output, servo motors ensure precise rotation of nacelle, and hydraulic cylinders in rotor hub enable exact adjustment of rotor blade angle. Under turbulent wind conditions, ends of B63 aeroelastically tailored blades cushion and absorb wind pressure to limit static loading of nacelle and tower. Read More
