Kitemill has unveiled designs for its first commercial scale airborne wind energy system. The new KM2 system has been in development for more than two years.
Twice the size of the KM1 prototype, with a 16-metre wingspan, it features four propellers for vertical take-off and landing. The device is capable of generating an average power cycle of 100kW. Projections from Kitewill show that Kitemill’s KM2 system could be scaled up further reaching a 40 m wingspan, generating 3000 kW power cycles.
