Latest news about wind energy technology
On Thursday, October 20th, Eocycle was awarded 1st place in the Innovation category at the Inventing the World of Tomorrow competition.
Eocycle has achieved an important milestone in the launch of its next generation turbines. The EO25 wind turbine has obtained a certified power curve in accordance with the IEC 61400-12-1:2005 standard. The results are impressive. The new wind turbine provides a 65% increase in energy production over the similar model from the previous generation. No other small wind turbine in the market can match its efficiency. At 6 m/s, the turbine has a certified capacity factor of 44%, resulting in an annual production of more than 87,000 kWh.
Eocycle Technologies Inc., designer and manufacturer of the innovative EOCYCLE 25 wind turbine, successfully completed its first installation in Denmark/Europe last September. The innovative Eocycle wind turbine is the only one of its size providing direct-drive and variable-speed technology, thereby making it possible to modulate the energy yield according to local requirements.
Iroquois, Ontario, Canada Wednesday 1st April 2015 – Orenda Energy Solutions, the Iroquois-based turbine manufacturer for the global medium distributed wind industry, has announced that it has licensed its proprietary ‘tilting tower’ technology to a fellow Montreal–based wind turbine company, Eocycle Technologies Inc.
Last October Eocycle Technologies participated in a trade mission to China directed by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard. This visit will enable Eocycle to expand its relationship with domestic businesses in order to diversify and reinforce the quality of its international supply chain, in addition to initiating discussions with a number of partners for the transfer of patented technologies in the country.
Eocycle Obtains Prototype Certification for EOCYCLE 25 in Denmark. Eocycle Technologies Inc., designer and manufacturer of the innovative EOCYCLE 25 wind turbine, received last September 29 a prototype certification for its ground-breaking direct-drive wind turbine.
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.
