Design Philosophy

Orenda’s Skye™ wind turbine solution delivers unrivaled safety, reliability and up-time through the following:
 

  • 6 Stage speed control design – Used to control the wind turbine as wind-speed increases, which ultimately brings the turbine to a controlled stop
  • Safety management – Fail-safe braking systems, and 7 levels of redundancy
  • Over-sized rotor – Captures maximum available wind even in low and moderate wind regimes
  • Patented hydraulic tower – Safe and quick maintenance/installation done on ground level (approximately 20 mins, one operator and a wrench is required to lower or raise the wind turbine) U.S. Pat: 8,371,074
  • IEC 61400-1 Class II design standards
