The Galaxy Wind Turbine incorporates a number of new concepts that assist in the efficient harnessing of wind energy. It is based on the use of a highly efficient vertical axis wind turbine that allows for effective operation even in light wind conditions. Capitalising on this, the technology has the potential to cover a broad range of applications in remote areas, particularly for remote power generation.
Incorporating extremely lightweight, non-corrosive components, the Galaxy Wind Turbine swivels through 360 degrees so it can be optimally pointed into the wind for maximum energy channelling. High-tech, lightweight composites are used on the specifically designed wind-tracking sail and wind induction system.
The innovative design and well engineered components produce highly cost-efficient energy in a very low wind speed profile, making it suitable for just about all outdoor environments.
