Anemometers feed wind data to control centre, which tells the yaw motor where to face. The hub adjusts the pitch of the blades to optimize the R.P.M. of the rotor, which is increased by the gearbox, to drive the generator.

Blades

  • 50 meters long
  • Fibre glass
  • Shaped like airfoil (airplane wing)

Anemometer

  • Constantly measures wind speed & direction

Nacelle

  • Automated control centre & remote monitoring
  • Brakes
  • Gear box
  • Generator

Hub

  • Gears inside hub change the pitch of the blades to catch or spill the wind

Yaw Motors

  • Changes direction turbine faces

Tower

  • Tubular steel
  • 4 Sections bolt together
  • Elevator & ladder

Foundation

  • Rebar & approximately 50 trucks of concrete

Power: From Us To You

100% of the power from our projects is consumed locally

Wind turns the blades
Blades turn the electric generator
On board computers monitor the turbine
High-voltage lines bring power to the substation from other parts of the province
Distribution lines connect to substation
Electricity is fed directly to the distribution grid. Any power produced by the turbine is that much less power that needs to be produced by a coal plant somewhere else in the province.
Electricity is drawn from grid
