The design uses a unique adaptation of the torque multiplication technology originally developed by our sister company Trident. Known as Trident Torque Multiplication Technology “TTMT”, it introduces a pairing of bespoke technologies a physical generation system to be housed within the nacelle of wind turbines and a specially developed electronic control module. These two systems will be adaptable to suit any wind turbine available currently or in the future to help accelerate our mission to move to net zero energy.
Another benefit of our design helps overcome an ever-increasing problem in the sensitive issue of wind turbine location. As our turbines create much more electricity than current designs the number of turbines needed to meet the total power output required can be less. The siting of wind turbines on land has always been a controversial subject, with many local residents objecting. Fewer, more efficient turbine installations could help this problem.
We can provide a unique and unprecedented financial opportunity to owners and operators of commercial wind farms. An increase in power generation from each turbine results in less turbines being required. This also means a reduction in maintenance costs due to a lower number of turbines. Initial figures from the University of Strathclyde show capabilities of producing 664% of the expected generation at certain wind speeds from the same turbine, requiring no changes to the blades or superstructure of the turbine.
With a worldwide patent on the design of the NNP turbine we are able to help wind turbine owners and operators directly throughout the world achieve more than ever before. Regardless of your location, our turbine with increase power generation, help reduce costs and maintenance schedules all as part of our mission to accelerate the world to Net Zero and improve energy security globally.
Alongside the ability to start at lower wind speeds, the NNP turbine will operate more efficiently in the current turbine operating window The fitment of an NNP system would generate a potential average of 37% additional electricity above and beyond that expected from a standard turbine. Increasing the generation capacity of every single wind turbine our driveline is installed in, will make a reduction in the total number of wind turbines that would need to be produced. This further accelerating the drive to net neutrality with fewer towers and blades being made to produce the required electricity.
Research studies undertaken by the doctors from the Wind Energy and Control Centre at the University of Strathclyde, it was shown that introducing our innovative driveline system to an existing Vestas V100-1.8MW turbine can provide multiple benefits.
We would be able to expand the operating window down as low as 0.3 meters per second, compared to an existing turbine that only begins operating at 3 meters per second. These studies are soon to be partnered with highly accelerated lifecycle testing (HALT) to be completed at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult test facility in Blythe, England to ensure accurate reliability and generation certification can be obtained.
Alongside the increased revenue generated by increasing the operating window and improving the efficiency throughout the entire operation, we reduce loss of earnings due to downtime and could extend the lifecycle of the wind turbines which can be valued as high as £161,000 for every 6 months of continued operation per 1.8MW turbine.
The documents produced by the WECC at the University of Strathclyde are downloadable below alongside the figures for the generated expected in a 1.8MW Vestas V100 turbine that could be fitted with our system to increase the capacity to 2.2MW and the expected generation for a 5.5MW turbine after the installation of our unique driveline system.
The reports supporting our design theory have been produced independently by the WECC at the University of Strathclyde who are a leading worldwide authority in wind turbine design and operation.
These can be downloaded below together with examples of the increased power generation produced in a simulation of an NNP turbine equipped Vestas 1.8MW V100 turbine which increased power generation to 2.2MW. We also have a simulation of the expected power generation increases in a 5.5MW turbine.
