Hercules is a vertical axis micro wind turbine that converts kinetic wind energy into clean electricity. Its proportion is inspired by the Golden Ratio, its design is the result of specialized wind engineering studies and every single part of it is created by the skilful hands of expert craftsmen. No compromise between beauty and technology. This is our vision.
Statement of the jury
This beautiful-looking wind turbine is notable for its vertical, sculptural, tree-like design, thus enabling the product to blend seamlessly into its environs. The fact that the specially formed, hand-crafted wooden rotor blades rotate around a vertical rod makes the product far more compact than conventional wind turbines with their radiating blades – and also result in a far more aesthetically pleasing product.
