VQ Wind Turbines

VQ WindJet™ - How it Works

VQ WindJet components are engineered to perform seamlessly for maximum results. All components are manufactured to the strictest quality control. Below is how they work together.

Turbine converts wind power to rotational power

Turbine -Converts wind power to rotational power

  • Innovative design to achieve high turbine efficiency
  • Simplified mechanical structure to improve efficiency and enhance stability
  • Slow rotor speed for low noise, increase in turbine life, and no avian problems
  • Gearbox (4.2:1 Hypoid Bevel), 200,000 hr lifetime, 95% efficiency.
  • Simple maintenance and ease of repair

 

Generator -Converts rotational power to electrical power

Generator -Converts rotational power to electrical power
