A lot has been going on over the course of the year here at Headwind Technologies Ltd. We have been designing and testing our Wind Shark turbines for a variety of applications and exploring various methods of manufacturing while trying to come up with the best combinations of hardware to go along with them.
So we wanted to give you a bit of a recap of what's been happening, what are latest plans are, and where we are going in the future with the Wind Shark's development.
We've had great success with the 3D printed versions of our Wind Shark 20 and learned a great deal about the features and benefits of the design. (20" dimension turbine with a 200watt generator) we have been exploring the scalability of the wind shark to better suit the needs of each application.
What do the numbers on the windshark mean?
The numbers indicate the height of the turbine blades in inches. ex. Windshark 20 = 20".
WS20 -Reef Shark
The 20" tall Reef Shark was designed to best suit 12v applications such as marine, RV use, and street lights. It's 20" height fits easily through the door of most RV's.
WS30 - Mako Shark
The 30" Mako Shark is currently being tested with a 1kW generator. This version is better suited for 24v - 48v systems. These are for use on tiny homes, cottages, or in telecommunication.
WS40 - Tiger Shark
The 40" Tiger Shark will be developed for residential uses.
WS60 - Great White Shark
The 60" Great White Shark will be used for light industrial such as greenhouses.
WS120 - Megaledon
The 120" Megaledon will be designed for disaster relief where much power is required.
Like all other businesses on the planet, we were severely affected by the the Covid 19 pandemic. Our mass manufacturer became too busy producing PPE and we were unable to get components from other parts of the world.
We were able to use some of that time to continue R&D on the 30" Mako Shark.
Now that the WS30 R&D phase has ended and some borders are opening up we are back into production of the 3D printed Wind Shark 20 line.
Currently sales of the WS20s have been limited to our early investors and to supplying our partners at Aurora (now E2sE) for their commercial lighting trailers but we will be taking pre orders for the Wind Shark 20s from the general public for delivery in 2021 very soon.
