Vortex Creates Bladeless Wind Energy
Vortex Bladeless developed a wind turbine with no blades that efficiently capture the mechanical energy resulted from the vortex shedding effect that occurs when the wind hits the mast of the turbine, and transform it into electricity. The feasibility of their technology has been demonstrated by computational simulations (CFD), wind tunnel assays (aerodynamic performance measurements) and field tests (Ávila Demonstration Plant).
