The Aerogenerator wind turbine has a vertical axis, rather than horizontal, which means maintenance and repair becomes easier because the parts are more accessible. Plus it can harness the wind from any direction without the blades needing to be constantly positioned.

They will be mounted offshore, are 47o feet tall, and produce three times more energy than a horizontal turbine of similar size.

It’s amazing and gratifying to see how fast renewable energy technology is progressing. Imagine where it will be five years from now!
