Umbra Applied Technologies Group Inc. (OTCMKTS: UATG) has announced that its advanced wind turbine will start field testing in the next 90-120 days.
New Helix Turbines manufactured from 75% recycled material.
The Helix Turbine, dubbed V-HET, has been built of carbon fiber, aluminum, steel, and composite materials, making each unit strong to endure the elements. However, it is light to enable it to harness maximum wind power. The tech employs a helix-shaped wind capturing design that enhances the ability of the unit to collect more wind power. Also, the Helix blades use an electromagnetic field in floating the blades to minimize mechanical resistance and energy loss associated with friction that modern systems face. Therefore this enables the unit to create power even at low wind speeds, usually possible for smaller units while at the same time producing considerable energy.
The Vertical Helix Turbine Power Station harnesses power from solar, wind, ground telluric current, and ambient temperature differentiation. The test will include the V-HETp variant. This is a massive step in producing true clean energy utilizing over 75% recycled products for each unit. According to the company, the cost of production for each unit is a fraction of current platforms.
New Helix turbines can cut carbon up to 2 million pounds yearly
UAT CEO Alex Umbra said, “Units have been under development for several years and represent a paradigm shift in current wind harnessing technology. I am optimistic that once delivered, this platform will represent a significant leap forward in the clean energy segment.”
The company expects the tech to cut carbon emission of a ten-storied building by almost 2 million pounds per year, equivalent to 44,000 gasoline gallons yearly.
