O - Wind Turbine

O – Wind Turbine, a truly-omnidirectional, single-axis wind turbine especially suitable for apartment buildings in urban environments.

The turbine is of a spherical shape with a single axis of rotation going through it. It makes use of Bernoulli’s principle for its mechanical motion.



O-Wind takes advantage of horizontal and vertical winds without requiring steering.

O - Wind Turbine

Our concept was originally developed as a way of taking advantage of cross-winds to make an exploratory vehicle travelling in a pre-set direction. A prototype proven in the Atacama Desert showed that it works, travelling more than 7km in straight line. The concept was recently redeveloped as a wind turbine by taking advantage of its capacity of making use of omnidirectional winds to achieve rotation over a single axis. This capacity allows it to face changing winds in urban environments.
