Zero-Blade Turbine Could Revolutionize Wind Power Industry

We have seen many high-tech wind turbines earlier that are considered as one of the main sources of sustainable energy. It’s sad but true that, the rotation of the blades of wind turbines often kill birds. Added to that, the noise and vibration of the wind turbines cause headaches, nausea and insomnia among people living nearby; even scramble radio and TV signals. But, this things may end with a revolutionary design from a Tunisian company, Saphon Energy. Saphon has come up with a non-rotational blade free wind power generation system, called The Saphonian.


Zero Blade Wind Turbine The Saphonion

Saphon Energy was founded in 2009 by a Tunisian banker, Hassine Labaied, and his friend Anis Aouin. The duo teamed up to create a new type of wind energy harvester that doesn’t rely on blades, or moving parts or likes. Inspired by sailboats, the Saphon Energy came up with a new solution rather than improving the current wind turbines’ technology. That’s how The Saphonian came. With the The Saphonian the kinetic energy of the wind can be converted and stored easily into electrical form. The conversion technology is vastly different compared to traditional wind turbines’ wind conversion technology.

The Saphonian system is twice as efficient as conventional wind turbine. And, it’s 45% cheaper to manufacture. As, The Saphonian is silent, so there’ll be no noise, headaches, nausea or insomnia. In addition, birds can fly safely.

    Likely a scam. Deluded principals at best.

    1. Can’t scale. The conical cross-structure combined with the piston-based energy capture system creates a massively cantilevered weight on a weak joint. Fail.

    2. Not backed up by their patent (linked from their website). The device described in their patent isn’t the one described in their website.

    3. Zero numbers or external validation of claims.

    4. Claims of better than Betz Law energy recovery. No one has ever gotten close to Betz Law theoretical limit, never mind two guys with zero wind industry history.

    5. Two guys with zero wind industry history or credibility.

    I can’t believe this thing is still getting press.

    Have you ever figured out how a speaker works? This is a huge speaker being vibrated by the wind which in turn the skin is attached to hydraulic pistons moving fluid into a accumulator(balloon to be used later) or pushing a hydraulic generator to create electricity. Think of the hydraulic fluid as working like a hydro generator.
