Generator testing set to begin this week

We are pleased to announce that our prototype direct-drive generator has been set in place for testing at the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) in Colorado, USA. The permanent-magnet generator is over 6m in diameter, with a 500kW capacity, and includes Columbia Power’s novel air-gap control system.

Testing will begin this week at the NWTC, which is operated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The project is co-sponsored by Columbia Power and the US Department of Energy and is an important risk-reduction step prior to deployment of a full-scale StingRAY wave power device at the US Navy’s Wave Energy Test Site in Hawaii, USA.
