30 kW Wind Turbines
Wenvor Technologies Inc. was formed in 1992 and was primarily focused on solar power in the early years. In 1995 we embarked on designing and manufacturing a rugged wind turbine that could withstand the rigors of the extremes in the Canadian climate. 1996 brought about the first installation at what is now called the Wind Energy Institute of Canada at North Cape, PEI.
We have made many design changes to that original concept. We now manufacture both a single phase and a three phase unit producing 30kW. The original fibreglass blades have been replaced by an optional carbon composite design providing lighter weight and increased rigidity. The main frame strength was improved for our cold weather conditions by using high quality ductile cast iron. Recent upgrades involved the addition of soft start controls and optional power factor correction.
We have other R&D projects underway with several universities including the University of New Brunswick, University of Guelph and the University of Waterloo. Tests have been recently run utilizing a new blade design that looks promising to be able to increase power production from lighter wind speeds.
A new series of 3 phase generators manufactured for us by Baldor has just been released for sale as well as new state of the art wind turbine controls manufactured by GE Digital Energy.
