Bentu, la turbina eolica portatile.

Our innovative wind turbine Bentu opens up new scenarios in the Portable Renewable Energy Market using materials typical of windsurfing applications, The turbine we will exhibit has a 1.6m diameter, producing a power of 400W at the design wind speed of 12.5 m/s with an overall weight of 10 kg including carbon fibre pole, generator and batteries. The project was initiated by Daniele Valentini’s idea, and developed in collaboration with the Department of Industrial Engineering atf the University of Rome Tor Vergata, with the participation of Prof. Vincenzo Mulone and BEng. Leonardo Mascarino.
