In recent developments, Mass Megawatts reports that it is nearing project completion for a wind augmentation system installed in
, Massachusetts. In addition, work has begun at a separate site to demonstrate an enhanced version of the augmentation system. The latest advances will better harness changing wind directions while also increasing the wind speed directed toward the turbine blades.
The Mass Megawatts' wind augmentation system utilizes a less complicated and inexpensive wind-focusing technique to increase the wind velocity directed at the turbine by an average of 70%. This accelerated wind speed, in turn, results in a significant, three-fold increase in the electrical power generated by the turbine.
The Company's augmentation system eliminates the need for turbine structures to exceed a height of 80 feet to realize adequate wind velocity. This reduces material and installation costs while expediting zoning approval in many locations. Additionally, the augmenter technology makes it possible for turbines to operate profitably in lower wind-speed locations.
Using horizontal or propeller type turbine blades, the cost per rated kilowatt is projected to be less than
and anticipated to approach
in mass production. This compares very favorably with traditional wind power systems that realize a cost of
$1500 to $2000
per rated kilowatt.
With its patented, wind augmentation system, and very little debt, Mass Megawatts believes it is well positioned to ramp-up production of its new augmentation units in the shorter term while expanding its infrastructure to support mass-production goals in the longer term.
