Winflex Ltd has developed and began implementing innovative and proprietary technology for wind turbines.
Winflex’ patent-pending rotor and unique wind turbine design dramatically impact the economic viability of wind energy projects.
Winflex had already erected a working prototype, located in northern Israel and supplying electricity to the electrical grid.
The Winflex rotor is one tenth the weight of a comparable sized motor (eg ~450kg compared to ~4 tons for a 20 meter diameter sized rotor), while providing equal or better rotor efficiency. The reduced weight is reflected in overall estimated savings of at least 50% in the total install cost per Kw. This dramatically improves the ROI for the Wind Farm operator and guarantees that many more projects will be able to achieve grid parity (COE) and therefore become economically viable projects.
