· Superior performance augmented by our variable pitch blade control design.
· Annual energy production that exceeds that of competitors.
· Robust and rugged design for reliability and longer life expectancy (30 years +)
· Eliminating bird and bat kills because of shrouded design.
· Minimum maintenance
· Aesthetics of design, with minimum visual impact
The Company Escue Energy ( ESCU ) is a start – up with the rich history thanks to Saeed Quraeshi who is the developer of worlds largest vertical axis wind turbine and now the Chief Technical Officer. Escue Energy team of engineers have the expertise and background to design both Small (KW) and Large (MW) wind turbines which can operate in both high and specially low wind conditions. Escue Energy initial business plan is to focus on Rural Electrification and become the pre eminent supplier of energy for Off Grid market opportunities such as present in the sub continent of India where over 500 mm people have no access to the grid and Africa both target markets for Escue Energy technology.
Escue Energy have made considerable strides in identifying human resources in place in the initial markets which they will launch in and as they move into each of these market places. Escue Energy have sub contracts ready to locally produce under license and to mitigate the cost and time of shipping and to keep cost low to meet the local market demands. In addition, the company has established a effective work force of Electrical Procurement Contractors (EPC) who will be trained to install equipment at the local level.
The expertise in Vertical Axis Wind Turbines is based on the development and the successful execution of project EOLE in the 1980s. Project EOLE was a 4-MW VAWT unit that operated for over 5 years in continuous operation and was the very first multi-megawatt VAWT. EOLE was one of the world’s largest, longest running, and most reliable megawatt-scale wind turbines – either VAWT or HAWT.
In 2003, a H-Type, straight bladed Small (1.5KW) vertical axis wind turbine System was built and installed as a prototype proof-of-concept unit. It was built to demonstrate the patented design features of our new and innovational design of vertical axis wind turbine.
The new line of innovative design in vertical axis wind turbine with shrouds represents the state-of-the-art, patented, H-Type, straight bladed, Vertical Axis Wind Turbines. It is specifically designed to meet the electrical power needs – For Homes, Commercial Buildings, Villages, Farms, and Independent Customers.
With cutting edge in wind turbine technology, we are seeking to fill the global void in availability of reliable, acceptable and affordable small wind turbines.
