Greek inventor offers wind turbine system with innovative blade design

Summary

A Greek inventor offers a new wind turbine. The innovation of this turbine is the unique blade design which allows to avoid the traditional blades and the technical limits that they produce. The new design is effective, reliable (two prototypes are in operation for many years) and easy to be produced. The inventor is looking for companies for licence agreement.

Partner sought

The Greek inventor is looking for a company interested to obtain the right to produce and commercialize the turbine. The company should have an obvious capacity in producing the turbine and selling it. Various sizes of the turbine can be produced. The inventor will help the interested companies to realize the production. The type of collaboration sought is licence agreement.

Description

A Greek inventor offers an innovative small or medium sized wind turbine system. The system is capable for maximizing the wind energy utilization. It is also suitable for domestic use, with low noise. This innovative wind turbine generator can operate with minimum wind flow. It consists of two plates that operate like a sail cloth of a sailing boat. These plates, which actually replace the common blades of a turbine, are like hemispheres and their interior is concave. Due to the innovative concave plates, the turbine can operate with variably and irregularly blowing air easily. The plates convert the irregular flow into a continuous flow of air, blowing towards one direction and at the same time moving the surface of the turbine’s plate in the opposite direction. In this way the operation of the turbine is maximized while the turbine is always safe. The hemispheres, in contrast to the common turbine blades, have the advantage of collecting large volume of air and thus provide a high-accelerating force. The whole shape of the hemispheres is like a drop, allowing them to operate and move perfectly and continuously. A prototype with 0,5 m. concave plates is available for demonstration. The prototype is working for years with no problem and it is capable to produce 1 KW of energy with just 15 km/h wind speed. The Greek inventor is looking for companies interested in producing and commercializing the design under a licence agreement.

Advantages and innovations

The innovation of this system is the replacement of the traditional blades as well as the tail of the common turbine with concave hemispheres that can immediately match wind fluctuations and changing directions. Concerning the rotation of the plates towards their axis, the more that the falling air increases the rotation and due to the right angle of the inclination, the volume of the imported air can push forward, towards the wind’s direction and thus balance the accepted pressure. The result is a high performing wind turbine that could provide higher power, at any wind speed, compared to the conventional designs. Additional advantages of the proposed turbine are the following. Quiet operation since there are no blades. Simplicity of production, the design is easy to be produced. Cheaper production cost and easy to be installed and operate allow the turbine to be successful for commercialization.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
