BRIGHTON, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CGE Energy (MKBY. MKBY:OTCPink) today delivered their complete and improved WIND•e20® wind turbine design to the engineering team at Burtek Enterprises, CGE Energy’s strategic manufacturing and assembly partner. This collection of intellectual property includes the extensive computer generated data package and complete bill of materials.
With the original turbine concept unveiled on 7/31/12, WIND•e20® is CGE Energy’s exclusive and patented vertical axis wind turbine that is designed for distributed energy generation. Hydraulically collapsing blades, trim-flap braking systems, and an environmentally friendly removable footing pioneer multiple advancements in wind turbine technologies and installation methods.
“The WIND•e20® design we delivered represents our years of design, testing and refinement,” said one of CGE Energy’s design engineers Dennis Azzopardi, “Today was one of those milestone days, like seeing your child off to college. Burtek has been a true partner and aided us in implementing cost saving improvements over the past year.”
Burtek will now spend the next few months re-running the in depth analysis and simulations to verify final material strengths necessary to meet the WIND•e20®’s 20-plus-year operating life, stringent safety requirements and energy production specifications. This final engineering check will prepare the WIND•e20® for cost effective manufacturability and mass production.
