A Spanish company has developed the future of wind power by removing the blades. This invention contains many advantages.Imagine a wind turbine. It is large and its blades (propellers) rotate in the wind. Now imagine it but without blades: it is the invention of the Spanish company Vortex Bladeless. This discovery brings fresh air to the world of renewable energy.
The turbine looks like a long cone which oscillations depend on the wind. It produces electricity by capturing vortex (hence the origin of its name), the swirling air currents.
This wind turbine without blades makes no noise, fits better into the landscape and does not kill birds. Moreover, its construction requires less material; it is lighter, respectful of the environment and its installation and maintenance would be easier.
In numbers, this translates as follows: a 53% reduction in construction costs, 51% of operating costs, 80% of maintenance costs, 40% of CO2 emissions and the energy produced would lower costs by 40%.
Other important features are as follows: the engine, installed on top of a conventional wind turbine, is moved to the base and it is made of carbon fibre and glass.
Fresh air to the world of renewable energy
Several colours and three models will be available. Because these turbines are not only intended for companies producing renewable energy, it is also a product for home use. In other words, you could install it in your garden without causing audible or visual nuisance for your neighbours.
