Latest news about wind energy technology
EOCYCLE TECHNOLOGIES SIGNS A COOPERATION AND SUPPLY AGREEMENT WITH MITA-TEKNIK FOR WIND TURBINE CONTROL SYSTEMS. Eocycle Technologies Inc., designer and manufacturer of the EOCYCLE 25 direct-drive wind turbine, has entered into a long-term agreement with Mita-Teknik A/S of Denmark for the supply of wind turbine controls.
In a presentation made last June at the Small Wind Conference held at Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Eocycle stressed the importance for clients to seek small wind turbines that are highly reliable and require minimal maintenance. Unlike large wind turbines which generally benefit from the constant attention of technician crews, small wind turbines must operate reliably and require minimal interventions to achieve availability levels that will deliver the expected financial returns and payback periods.
After a full year of uninterrupted operation at the test site of the Wind Energy Institute of Canada (WEICan), Eocycle Technologies is pleased to announce the successful completion of tests validating the power curve and sound power levels of the EOCYCLE 25 wind turbine.
Eocycle Technologies is pleased to announce the installation of an EOCYCLE 25 wind turbine inKotzebue, Alaska, a community located approximately 50 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. With its hassle-free operation under the extreme conditions characteristic of this region, the simplified, crane-less installation of this EOCYCLE 25 marks an important milestone for Eocycle Technologies, as it is concrete testimony to the vision of the company to become a leading provider of renewable energy solutions for small remote communities seeking to reduce their dependence on costly and polluting fossil fuels.
Eocycle Technologies is proud to publish its very first news flash and at the same time invite you to join us in this fantastic venture. Over the next few months, we will be sharing with you the great excitement that surrounds our company and the challenges we will be facing on a daily basis as we offer you products which focus on quality and performance
