Qr6 rotor can use wind from all directions, unlike traditional HAWTs which need to track the wind – therefore maximising efficiency
A VAWT for the same swept area has a smaller plan area than a HAWT, making it more space efficient. An important consideration when siting on or close to buildings
The helical swept blades help distribute loads evenly, resulting in minimal vibration making the Qr6 a better option for roof mounts.
The aerodynamic helical blade design results in smooth, quiet operation.
Due to the vertical axis geometry of the rotor, the blade tips are close to the axis of rotation and travel a shorter distance per revolution. This results in a lower blade tip speed further
reducing noise levels.
Revolutionary blade tip designed to shed noise.
Unique aero-elastic blades design captures turbulent wind and absorbs vibration.
Operating wind speeds
The Qr6 Turbine has a cut in speed of 1.5 m/s (3.35 mph) and will function making a
positive contribution down to 1.1 m/s (2.5 mph)
The Qr6 cuts out to protect itself at 20 m/s (45mph).
Most calm days in the UK can be considered to still have 6mph to 10mph wind speeds on the
ground which increases rapidly on a mast at 15m.
The turbine is supported by a powerful industrial
programmable logic controller which can easily be configured to comply with grid codes around the world.
A three phase grid connection is required. Please contact us if you have requirements for single phase or off grid/battery version.
