The Front Cover

Most wind farms are located in open, lightning-prone areas and have turbines reaching many tens of metres into the sky, lightning safety is a major concern for wind farm operators. The article on page 7 will provide insight into practices that are currently being used by many leading wind farm power companies to enhance operational efficiencies and ensure employee safety.

                    <p>The image on the cover shows the WindWing which incorporates a  horizontal wing configuration instead of a propeller. The technology  which was covered in more detail in the March 2008 issue of Windtech  International is not solely dedicated to producing electricity. Now two  years later the WindWing is in the final stages of development and the  company will be entering the market soon. In the article on page 7 Gene  Kelley gives an update about the WindWing/WaterWing project and his view  on the industry in general.</p>
