Within the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014-2020, Measure 1.1: R&D projects of enterprises, Sub-measure1.1.1 Industrial research and development work implemented by enterprises, Green Vertical Turbine Limited liability company is implementing the project, entitled: “Development and analysis of GVT-G6 Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT), in demonstration scale ”.
The main objective of this project implementation is to develop and test the final product of the project, namely, the innovative GVT-G6 Vertical Axis Wind Turbine with rotating air supply equipment of configurable power capacity, made in two different types of materials, that is to say, steel and aluminum. Another objective of the project is to prepare for its commercialization by obtaining the necessary certificates.
Large capacity range of the turbine (from 20 kW with a recommended minimum of two segmental construction up to 0.5 MW) and two types of construction materials provide a wide range of applications, such as classic wind turbines in the configuration of free-standing towers or power columns on land and sea and double segments located on private, industrial areas or marine vessels.
Development activities will be carried out within the project with the participation of a highly-qualified team of experts. Their main responsibility will be to develop two construction options for the GVT-G6 turbine as well as to integrate key electrical components of the turbine. Another goal will be to build test facilities in operational conditions reflecting the key application areas where certification tests and trials will be carried out.
Eligible costs for the project: PLN 10 575 664.50
Contribution of the EU Funds PLN 6 345 398.70
Green Vertical Turbine Company was founded in 2015 in order to develop and commercialize innovative technology of wind turbines. Within its business activity, Green Vertical Turbine conducts development operations regarding innovative technology of vertical wind turbines for prosumer and power engineering purposes. The results of this technology improvement have been implemented since 2010. Consequently, the 5th generation GVT-G5 vertical wind turbines has been created. Furthermore, the company deals with complimentary design and construction of wind farms.
Green Vertical Turbine Ltd. is currently the only Polish entity conducting works on vertical wind turbines technology of a total power capacity of 20 kW to 300 kW. The company has a team of wind turbines construction specialists, engineers, designers, technicians and qualified technical workers from the field of electronics and mechanics.
