Bladeless Turbine Harvests Wind Energy 2.3X More Efficiently Than Bladed Turbines

We have more than enough wind energy to power the whole world. But conventional wind turbines don’t do that great of a job of harnessing it.

Saphon Energy introduced a radical innovation in wind technology that just brought a much-needed breath of fresh air to the industry. The Tunisian company created a bladeless wind turbine which draws inspiration from the design of a ship’s sails.

Bet that would also solve the bird massacre problem ...but now I foresee a problem with bees being killed when attracted to fields of these giant flowers!

Brilliant in it's simplicity. beercheer.gif

Fantastic idea! Reading through the comments I found this...

A quick search will reveal that it is a hoax. Or rather it is terribly inefficient and nowhere close the efficiency of a traditional turbine.

  • Is half the cost of a typical wind turbine
  • Is quieter than traditional models
  • Harnesses the power without hurting birds
  • Harvests about 80 percent of the available wind energy, which is 2.3 times more efficient than a traditional bladed turbine.
  • Reduces the amount of energy lost through poor aerodynamics and discards unnecessary structural elements such as the blades, hub and gear box.

:)

Too much of an industry built around the current models... we will likely never see full scale implementation of this ...and how well do these things handle high winds? ...more efficient design needs to also be able to handle an "overload" of wind. Maybe if the dish itself is relatively inexpensive to replace? and designed to collapse before tearing apart other components? maybe it's better at handling and harvesting high winds then something that spins? I know they will sometimes lock blades to protect propeller models.

oh

well, so much for that.

Didn't even think this was something worthy of hoaxing to check!

SAPHONIAN DIED on 29th of April 2013!

I am a Tunisian expert in the innovation field. The evaluation of any innovation is the [backbone of my] job. Evaluation on 3 aspects: Scientific/Technical, Industrial/Technological and Commercial is needed to achieve any transfer.
The SAPHONIAN didn’t need all these effort to achieve a tragic conclusion: It’s a joke, a large scale joke!
I use smooth words like Joke instead of scam or any other accusing adjective. It’s not my job.

The jury is still out. The skeptics don't have evidence of their skepticism and the proponents don't appear to have proof of their claims either. It could be an investment hustle or the real thing.
