Vertical-axis wind turbine
2 500 kW
MARIAHs continuing focus on improving existing vertical axis wind turbine technology developed by the companys predecessors has led to a highly efficient system deliverable at lower cost, easier to maintain and less costly to operate than current horizontal axis wind turbines. The newest commercial system is scheduled for introduction in 2012, and is capable of producing up to 2.5 megawatts of power. Like the Mid Range systems, the 2.5 Mw turbine utilizes a new aerodynamic three-blade configuration, mounted on a new, heavy duty, easy to install tower.
The companys proprietary new design significantly improves wind turbine performance and efficiency beyond virtually all current horizontal axis wind turbines, using numerous breakthrough innovations unique to the industry:
