Innovative vertical wind turbine for extreme conditions

They are vertical axis turbines, designed to capture the wind in extreme conditions. They are very efficient and silent so as to also respect the fauna around the installation sites.

A revolutionary design for remote power needs

A vertical wind turbine without blades, capable of generating energy from the most extreme winds coming from any direction, now offers a solution to power even the most remote infrastructures.

This breakthrough, named IceWind, hails from Iceland and is specifically engineered to meet energy needs in extreme conditions. Its design aims to replace diesel generators, like those commonly used on telecom towers. Thanks to its vertical orientation and unique design, it can harness wind from all angles.

Advanced blade technology

IceWind features external blades with a specific cross-sectional shape, positioned at strategic distances to adapt to varying wind forces. The internal blades help initiate movement at low speeds and can brake in strong winds.

Constructed from aluminum, stainless steel, and composite materials (such as fiberglass or carbon fiber), these turbines are said to be far more durable than current wind turbines. They operate quietly, emitting just 33 decibels (a typical conversation ranges between 40 and 60 decibels), ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife in the installation area.

Built for Harsh Environments

Designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including those found in volcanic areas, these turbines can endure dust, water, debris infiltrating the generator, and even ice. The Icelandic company behind IceWind promises high efficiency with minimal maintenance, boasting a lifespan of 20 years.
