We are making progress on the new duct for the 3m rotor thanks to the great efforts of Tom and his team at Empire Fiberglass Products Inc.! Thanks folks! Looking good!
This is the core plug for the mold. Once the surfaces finished they will then create the mold from which the ducts will be made.
DTI is happy to announce a collaboration with Vistex Composites (http://www.vistexcomposites.com ) out of Schenectady, NY to develop and manufacture a composite rotor blade and hub system for us! Vistex is a manufacturing innovation company that has developed disruptive technology for the manufacture of advanced thermoset and thermoplastic composite products. Their patented Pressure Focusing Layer™ (PFL) process, reduces energy consumption and CapEx/OpEx by at least an order of magnitude.
Thanks to Empire Fiberglass Products Inc. for bringing up a prototype section of the new duct. Looking forward to seeing the full size unit and how we integrate it into the turbine itself!
We are happy to announce a development partnership with Empire Fibreglass Products Inc. out of Little Falls, NY. The owner, Thomas Baum, has agreed to work with us in developing the duct for our turbines and it is also great to be working with an alumni from the Class of ’69!
We will be presenting our recent results at the Wind Energy Science Conference at the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby Campus June 26-29, 2017. Looking forward to interacting with the world experts on ducted turbines at the special Mini-Symposia that is being organized.
Many thanks to Clarkson University for publishing an article about our turbine project in their latest President’s report! You can read all about about it online right here.
DTI is happy to announce that licensing arrangements with Clarkson University were completed and signed off today. DTI is the now the exclusive licensee of the ducted turbine technology developed at Clarkson. Another significant step as we move forward to commercialization!
Interest in our turbines isn’t the only thing growing….so is our duct size! So I thought I’d post a sketch of the 4 meter unit as compared to our 2.5 meter turbine. Blade design is still in the works.
Thanks to Clarkson University for a little PR video yesterday on our efforts towards making this turbine a reality!
