The 6kW qr5 triple-helix-shaped wind turbines are five metres high and just over three metres wide. The turbines are vertical in orientation and generate electric power by turning around their own axis. They are especially suited for local energy production in built-up areas and can be installed either on buildings or as a standalone turbine. Around 30 qr5 turbines to date have been produced and installed at clients' sites around the UK, and a further 45 have been sold and are at the manufacturing and installation stages.
