The best power to weight = the best scalability
Kites inflate their turbine rings up, out and around.
This pulls the lines and transmits torque to ground.
This technology has huge potential benfits in our climate crisis
We need you onboard, We can do great things working together.
A kite turbine has less line drag than any other airborne wind turbine. Especially when it is stacked. More kites up a line = Less line drag per kite.
Kite turbines can fly under 30m above ground - making them the only CAA ANO CAP393 compliant airborne wind energy system.
Every part of a Kite Turbine is networked with multiple connections, so nothing can fly free.
Our multiline torque transmission system is incredibly lightweight and capable
The dynamics were first described by Ollie during his PhD in Strathclyde
The Kite Turbine fits in the boot of an electric car.
We used it to remotely part charge our e-nv200 van.
Next is a mission to a remote location with nothing but Kite power to bring us back.
There's a lot of study going on right now. Windswept and Interesting are very grateful for the help of the Airborne Wind Energy Community. Especially researchers in University of Strathclyde
We are building collaborations across industry and preparing to develop an automated 10kW system to investigate scaling & offshore deployment potential.
This is going to be fun.
