All 4 sections are finished and a jig assembly work-up is underway. Many thanks to Empire Fiberglass Products for their innovative fab ideas AND their flexibility in working with us! We can’t thank you folks enough!!
Great meeting with the campus and students yesterday to kickoff the install of Turbine #1! Looking forward to working with the all the student volunteers and campus personnel to get the turbine up and running!
Clarkson University has officially agreed to purchase a DTI 3.0 unit from us for their campus! Always nice to see a public announcement from a buyer so we figured we might as well share their Facebook post.
Our first customer, Clarkson University, has committed to purchasing a turbine for their campus! Needless to say, we are thrilled and will be updating as installation begins with Turbine 1.
Combined Energies of Latham, NY, has announced they will collaborate with DTI to develop the power electronics associated with their new ducted turbine unit. Their greater than 95% patented conversion efficiency DC-DC converter topology, is a low cost, high efficiency, passively cooled platform that will significantly improve the economics and performance of the turbine installations.
The first quarter section for the duct has been produced! Very happy with our partner Empire Fiberglass!
A mock-up/assembly area for the turbine install is complete!
Once the duct fab is finished, installation set-up and fixture location can be completed here before being installed outside at the test sites with the actual blades.
The molds have been pulled and after final finishing they are ready for fab!
The mold being built by Empire Fiberglass for the duct quarter section is complete! Backside with supports is shown below and if you look close you can see the finish surface underneath. Looks like we may have the first 1/4 section fabbed in a week!
The plug for the duct is finished! Looks terrific. Next up: Gel coating!
