Summary of project results

 

A high growth in the global renewable distributed power generation market is expected in the coming decades. A strong business opportunity was detected in midsized wind turbine market. During 2008-2011 Argolabe developed a 100kW wind turbine for distributed power generation. A real scale prototype was erected and is since operating with very good performance and reliability records. The company needed a financial incentive to complete the transition from a technological demonstrator to a market product. This project has allowed the improvement of this wind turbine model at all levels, focusing on the industrialization of the turbine. Now, the company will be able in short-time to commercialize this turbine, launching a very competitive product to the global market. The main objectives of the project have been reached: - Strength and reliability turbine with minimum maintenance. - High performance operation to guarantee high economic profits. - Reasonable production costs
