Wind Turbine Energy Category
Composed of linen fabrics impregnated with a 100 % biodegradable PLA, this wind turbine prototype with a low impact on the environment associates required mechanical characteristics with lightness to attain its efficiency objectives. The blades and their shaft were conceived and manufactured based on a principale of 'composite sheet metal'. This factory procedure, which doesn't use a mold, was borrowed from the boilermarking and woodworking industries and developed by La Tolerie Plastique (LTP) in the context of research financed by OSEO and the Haute Normandie region. Two others partners are associated with this project : Groupe Depestele who produces long fibers and 100% linen technical fabrics or fabrics combined with thermoplastic fibers (PLA, PP, PA ...) and the LOMC laboratory - Havre University, specializing in researching manufacturing procedures for flax composites.

A secure control system lets this tiny wind turbine function is strong wind thanks to a patented technology fron ACTENER, a company involved in renewable energy (wind, water, sun) for sites that are isolated or part of a network. These applications can be extended from public lighting to agriculture or industry (electric cars, cell phones) and even homes.
