Rotogen Vertical Wind Turbine
Vortex inspired Vertical Turbo Blade Wind Turbine system enhancing energy production in low wind conditions that self regulate in extreme weather
How this will impact Adelaide's carbon emissions
The Helical Turbo Blade Design is simple in construction and can be installed in a variety of compact areas to either direct feed the grid with a self consumption ability or charge battery banks for homes while the wind is blowing above 2 meters per second in velocity.
These turbines will help power businesses, homes and even high rise buildings with a safe, efficient and robust solution for a potential 24/7 energy producing technology especially during the night time and in the long winter months.
Installation of these turbines in the built environment will help in reducing the carbon emissions in Adelaide by supplying reliable carbon free energy to many aspects of city living.
The Turbo Blade design is almost silent and aesthetically pleasing to the observer, they can be scaled in sizes to be installed in a multitude of applications from rooftops to street lights being the perfect component solution able to be augmented along side of existing solar installations.
The manufacturing of components can be performed locally with well established methods of production supplying the local economy with a much needed boost in employment.
The Turbo Blade Turbines are constructed using Aluminium and Stainless Steel components along with Fibre Glass composite resin technology, resistant to salt water and are UV stabilized with a 25 year guarantee on all parts.
These Turbines do not mind salt air and can capitalize on the regular on shore winds that Adelaide often experiences especially in winter, they can be installed on top of a tower in park lands in safety.
Rotogen Turbines was a semi finalist in the Australian Cleantech Awards 2013, also a regional winner and finalist for the same competition in 2015 and Oztren Industries was a winner in the Advantage SA regional awards for innovation in 2010 with a national design award also being won in the same year.
Voting has now closed for the Wildcard prize. Stay tuned to find out which project will be the 11th finalist.
