E-Si CEO Paul Fletcher has just finished the Noveol wind turbine course in Poitiers, France. Paul said "Noveol is a really novel system, combining Darius and Savonius wind turbine blades enabling low start up speeds without assist."
On the course Paul found out how a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine really works and how to calculate wind power derived from swept area. On the last day of the course everyone was treated to a tour of the factory, learning all about the component parts and also seeing the assembly process which Paul says "made a lot of sense".
In conclusion Paul said "We have a wind turbine we can sell and market that we know will operate, with good service back up."
