Hey does anyone know whether there are any Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) electricity generators that have been developed for use aboard? I have seen some pretty small units and they look pretty efficient on paper... Cheers!

Hello Folks. That address above is my amateur attempt at providing you with a link to a vertical axis wind genny called a Forgen. Quite popular up this part of the world with people who find them easier to fit where the propellor type genny would require too much space. If you look at "power management on the Seateach website you'll see Forgen listed. regards Saxon
