1000kW Wind Power

Agricultural / Businesses, Small Communities, Schools Resorts Islands Remote Locations

Our Wind Electric Generators (WEGs) are designed to withstand severe environment conditions. The robust design ensures higher level of safety, reliability and a longer life span.

The 1000W turbine is equipped with microprocessor controlled Optitip pitch regulation, ensuring continuous and optimal adjustment of the angles of the blades in relation to the prevailing wind. The Optitip system is the best solution to the often contradictory requirements for high output and low sound levels depending on the location.

This turbine is also equipped with a state of the art Lightning Protection system. This protects the entire turbine from the tips of the blades to the foundation.  The system conducts almost all lightning strikes harmlessly past the sensitive parts of the nacelle and down into the earth. As an extra safety measure, the delicate control units and processors in the Wind Turbine are also protected by an efficient shielding system.
