X-Wind Power, manufacturer of vertical axis wind turbines, shows for the first time the potential of its technology, with the setting-up of a demonstration project with UK’s Network Rail.
The DECC part-funded project aims at reducing the carbon footprint of electrified railways by up to 70% using wind energy generators adjacent to tracks. The XW-80 has been designed for sites with restricted access and limited space. XW-80 can be installed at a density of 1MW per kilometre on long linear sites such as sea defences, road and rail corridors or in small numbers to suit community or businesses.
