Model Rx 2 KW - Rapid Deployment INVELOX (RDI)

0

SheerWind’s Rapid Deployment INVELOX (RDI) are ideal for military, emergency power, FEMA, Homeland Security, remote communities and missions. Increasing the output of conventional turbines, INVELOX captures, concentrates and accelerates wind to increase capacity factor.

Capture, accelerate, concentrate. These three words express the essence of SheerWind’s approach to wind power. The name INVELOX comes from this dedication to INcreasing the VELOcity of wind. What the technology produces—energy that is affordable, abundant, safe, and clean—is nothing short of revolutionary.

INVELOX funnels wind energy to ground-based generators. Wind is captured with a funnel and directed through a tapering passageway that naturally accelerates its flow. This stream of kinetic energy then drives a generator that is installed safely and economically at ground level.

Bringing the airflow from the top of the tower to ground level allows for greater power generation with much smaller turbine blades. It also allows for networking, allowing multiple towers to direct energy to the same generator. The unit is about 50% shorter than traditional wind towers and uses a ground-based turbine with blades that are 84% smaller. Fewer generators are required, so equipment and maintenance costs are lower. Most importantly, energy output is greater.
