The technology described herein is related to the development of a vertical axis wind turbine system suitable for applications in regions with limited power access. The wind turbine system can generate electricity at low wind speed starting from 2.5 m/s with rated speed between 8 - 10 m/s. With its unique turbine blade design, the wind turbine system are practically silent (<40dB) and operate at low revolution (40-80 rpm) while generating sufficient power (between 2.5 - 50 kW). The technology provider has developed a prototype for proof of concept and is seeking for commercialisation partners in technology licensing and manufacturing.
Key features of the vertical axis wind turbine system are as follows:
The vertical wind turbine axis technology can be applied in the following areas:
