A new design for a bladeless turbine could eliminate the threat of wind farms to wildlife, and speed the adoption of wind power. Bladeless wind turbines are less efficient than conventional wind turbines, but multiple bladeless wind turbines can be installed in the same. Vortex Bladeless Ltd. is a Spanish tech startup that is developing a multi- patented new kind of wind turbine without blades nor gears or shafts. The Vortex’s wind.

Vortex Bladeless Turbine – Reinventing wind energy!

It has a cylindrical shape that oscillates in the wind, and electricity is generated through a lineal alternator system. What is your estimated price tag of a Tacoma 12 Kg, model and generation power of same at differenttwind speeds?

Bladeless Wind Turbines May Offer More Form Than Function

The more effective the manufacture, the lower the price. Could you provide new answers on the same questions where you stand now, and what the expectations are? Have you advanced in higher output units? No gears or bearings which could break, no oil is required.

Alternators are a well known technology, altough the way Vortex wlnd using it is innovative and patented. One key facet of the Vortex design is that it uses less material than conventional turbines, meaning less maintenance as well as less noise. Is it something you are working on and what is the cost?


How it works? – Vortex Wind Turbine in a Nutshell

Morteza Sardari Posted at Vortex is a vertical, slender and cylinder-shaped device. On this stage Vortex was able to apply for funding from the Horizon for research and innovation programme of the European Commission. Considering the fact that we had to utilize storage batteries for smooth production process during the day time and night time lighting continuity, we installed a W conventional Horizontal Axis Turbine in order to mitigate our battery drains during non-sunny days and rainy season and also to have a diversified energy solution for our day to day needs.

The company further maximizes the output from a given wind speed by modifying the rigidity of its structure.

We believe ours could work the same although it may be not as stable turbihe with regular wind turbines since our oscillation depends on the vortex shedding phenomena that happen around and not because of the wind striking the device itself. Raghav Gupta Posted at Vortex Bladeless is a vortex induced vibration resonant wind generator, a new branch of wind turbines.

If the device is proper callibrated and anchored we have not heard any sound at all during tests. Talking about 6Kw of nominal output, approximately more than 20 meters high! Unfortunately we cannot offer any products yet.


Vortex Bladeless

We are ready to be part of the fun of developmental learning. Chief among them is cost.

Traditional wind turbines — those with blades that rotate around a horizontal axis — typically consist turbune a tower, control system and the blades. I hope you are going to spread your technology far afield — even to Australia. Very interesting technology congrats. Currently, we are working on a power curve and an energy curve for wiind datasheet of Tacoma units, also conducting a research along the Czech Technical University of Prague to estimate cost-effectiveness and feasibility of the technology costs over a long time.

I will follow your progress keenly. On most wind tunnels you cannot perform proper sound measurements since wind is loud and turbulent inside. Unlike regular rotating-based wind power, with the proper calibration and anchoring we expect Vortex technology to be completely noiseless. Vortex bladeless is mainly a solution for distributed energy generation. When wind intensifies, the magnetic force of repulsion goes up.

The degree of flexion grows as long the wind intensifies. The wind flow generates a cyclical pattern of vortices, which can become an engineering challenge for slender structures, such as towers, masts and chimneys.
