Spiral Magnus - a wind power generator

About one year ago, February 2008, I introduced at this blog site Spiral Magnus wind generator designed and manufactured by MECARO.  It seems that the new generator is now in commercial production.  The first commercial unit reportedly installed in Ogata Village, Akita Prefecture, Japan last November.  This video is a brief presentation on the product.


According to the supplier, MECARO, the strong advantage of Spiral Magnus are in low speed rotation, exceptionally quiet operation, long lasting durability as well as high efficiency and stability in power generation that have been enabled by Spiral Effect together with MECARO's patent technology.

Typical specifications data extracted from the supplier's web site are as follows.

Wind Turbine Diameter: 11.5m
Rated Output: 12kW
Rated Wind Speed: 11m/s
Rated Rotor Speed: 30rpm
Cut-in Wind Speed: 3m/s
Cut-out Wind Speed: 30m/s
Wind Load Survival Rate: 60m/s
