This is the first quiet, structure or pole-mountable wind turbine that generates electricity by harnessing the power of the wind providing you with a cost effective energy source for residential, community, and industrial use. By installing a wind turbine at your location, you can reduce the amount of electricity used by conventional means, reduce your carbon emissions and lower your electricity bills. The emphasis of the Swift Wind Turbine design has been focused on safety, reliability and ease of operation, alongside the high-performance of this innovative system.
Unique technologies led to the filing of five international patents, which allow the Wind Turbine to offer:
A structure-mounted turbine is mounted on an aluminium mast with a minimum blade-roof clearance of approximately two feet. It is optimally mounted at the highest point of a roof, in a position which benefits from maximum prevailing wind, but it will work effectively in almost any location. The Swift Micro Wind Turbine is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and quiet.
To ensure minimal transmission of oscillations from turbine to building, the wind turbine mounting brackets incorporate a damping system, specifically designed to absorb a wide range of frequencies. The patented ring diffuser, connecting the blades, minimizes turbine noise by preventing the creation of turbulent vortices at the blade tip. In addition, the five-bladed design allows for a slower speed of rotation to further reduce noise, making this wind turbine one of the quietest wind systems. Now you can have clean, quiet energy generated right from your rooftop.
Because our philosy is to practice what we preach, we have installed 3 micro wind turbines at the site of our new head office just outside Mold, North Wales. The image above shows two of the wind turbines in situ and the video below shows the installation of one of the wind turbines;
