On a like for like basis the Forgen Ventus 70 is the best performing vertical axis wind turbine in the world.
Forgen Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) technology is used in many different applications all over the world including government scientific research institutions, on sailing boats, and increasingly in many varied commercial applications where small scale remote power is required.
The sophisticated technology behind the turbines enables the maximum advantage to be taken of even the most average weather conditions. However, Forgen turbines really come into their own when faced with extreme environments such as those found in the Arctic and Antarctic as well as offshore marine applications.
The Forgen Ventus 70 is the larger scale vertical axis machine in our range and measures just 300 mm in diameter in plan dimensions and just over 465 mm tall. This unit is designed for multiple battery bank installations up to 450Ah of battery.
There are also two models offered in the Forgen Ventus 70 series range, the normal temperature model (NT) and the low temperature model (LT). The Forgen Ventus 70 NT is suitable for temperatures down to -20 degrees Celsius, whereas the low temperature models are designed to continue operating in temperatures down to -50 degrees Celsius. Like the Forgen Ventus 30 model, during high speed wind tunnel tests the Forgen Ventus 70 model was still spinning and delivering output in 100mph winds, which is often seen as a challenge for many horizontal axis machines.
This product comes complete with standard wedge mount and bracket. Alternative mounting options cost extra. Please refer to our Accessories section.
(Please note the Forgen Ventus 70 standard model is only suitable for 12V systems. If you require a 24V system, please contact us to order. Technical data will remain the same, except current which will differ slightly).
