Orthios are working with a technology developer for the introduction and deployment of a Modular Aero Compression and Storage (MACS) unit. MACS are unique, small diameter (less than 5 meter) ducted wind turbines utilising advanced aerodynamics to generate higher levels of energy compared to existing wind turbines.
The patented technology utilises a hydraulic drive mechanism which provides multiple benefits:
- significantly more efficient than the nearest equivalent electrical turbine;
- effective in both low and high winds;
- through integrated storage it can provide base-load and peak power and true on-demand energy delivery; and
- provides significant cost savings compared with conventional wind turbines
