The vertical wind turbine implies a wind turbine with a vertical axis of rotation. The Philéole vertical axis wind turbine is of the Savonius type and operates on the principle of differential drag. The blades which present their concave face to the wind offer more resistance to the wind than those which present their convex face; this produces a differential torque which causes the propeller to rotate.
The Philéole wind turbines are silent because the speed of the tip of the blades does not exceed that of the wind, unlike the blades of horizontal axis propellers which tips can reach 6 to 7 times the speed of the wind which results in whistles.
Lightweight and efficient
The design of the blades and the air outlet vents makes the Philéole propeller light and efficient. Its low weight only results in low tipping torque, even in an elevated position in the masts or on roofs.
Strong and resistant
The propeller is made of recycled plastic bottles with some fiberglass (R-PETG) in one piece or in blocks of three. The design is thick and rigid in the center, softer towards the periphery. It reduces centrifugal forces to better accommodate turbulent winds.
Of the Savonius type, our mini wind turbine has a vertical axis, which means that the peripheral speed at the end of the blade does not exceed that of the wind and avoids any whistling or noise.
The low tip speed and low inertia of the propeller (weight 6-7 kg) avoid any danger for the user as well as for birds or sails of sailboats.
Reliable and space-saving
Its vertical axis makes the electricity production more regular because it is independent of the wind direction and vortices. The small size (120 cm x 90 cm) of our wind turbine allows it to be easily mounted on the top of a mast or on a roof.
We offer you a unique and successful product for independent and renewable energy production!
The Philéole wind turbine is environmentally sustainable thanks to the materials used: recycled plastic bottles with fiberglass (R-PETG) and recyclable aluminium accentuate the circular economy of our wind turbine.
Philéole also emphasises the local aspect of its wind turbine. Produced and designed in Europe, the Philéole wind turbine reduces the carbon footprint of the production, purchase of parts and transport of the wind turbine.
Navigator from Colombia
“The joy of not having to run my engine two times an hour a day to produce what I need”.
“Your wind turbine is perfect in its design and on the aeraulic and electrical plans, the results are perfectly satisfactory… no noise, even with a marina wind above 30N /m”.
La Trinité at sea
“Energy production exactly as I hoped for … no need to run the engine for an hour twice a day … a pleasure to find your sailboat at port, batteries always charged”.
