Wind turbine designed for extreme weather

15 Jan 2019

BarberWind Turbines’ 800kW wind turbine has been specially designed to serve the distributed generation market and is especially interesting to Caribbean island nations because it has a built-in lifting system and can be hinged down in the approach of severe weather or a hurricane. An advantage of the lifting system is the BWT doesn’t need a heavy-use crane to erect it. It is assembled on the ground and then raised into place utilizing its own apparatus. Plus, it ships in standard containers so it doesn’t require special transport or permits.
