An interesting benefit of the single blade design is that the turbine can be packed with the rotor fully assembled. Marie-Laure developed this concept as part of her recent internship with Powerhouse Wind.
Two ThinAir wind turbines packed and ready to ship.
Final assembly and functional testing of these two ThinAir wind turbines.
Turbine chassis immediately out of mould.
New machines are made, assembled and prepared for customers in the North Island.
An ever-improving learning curve and new developments ensure the ThinAir wind turbine is always improving and making use of new technologies, e.g. better wound alternator coils and composite parts newly designed and developed. Encouragingly new improvements happen faster and with far less waste than in the early days.
