Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Kawpi is a new ecuadorian small company created to develop and manufacture small wind turbines using wood locally produced in order to not only produce clean energy but also a beautiful eco-friendly product. We are targeting mainly the touristic sector specifically hotels, resorts and lodges located at the beach and highlands.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a design for a small wind turbine using wood. the aesthetics are really important. We need to find a light wind turbine design but beautiful at the same time. Something that you would love to see at the side of your home.
Restrictions: blades design: This elements will be developed by me because this is strictly an engineering design. But the blades design will not be really different from normal small wind turbines. Blades length: 1.5 m
Alternator: the alternator generator is not part of the design. Size and dimensions you can see them from the pcitures
Tail: The tail has to be present for turbine direction system but its design is at your free will
To take into account: The wood parts will be carved from wood panels and for this reason parts cannot be too complex.
Feel free to add elements just for aesthetics. The generator need a support base to keep it fix to the mast. So here you may have an opportunity to make your imagination go wild. In the prototype I used a metallic support but now I want it wood made.
The nose in the prototype will change radically so dont take it as a reference for the design.
For this project I will use two types of wood depending on its function. One is balsa wood, which is a really light material but strong in comparison with its weight; the second is another local wood called laurel which is stronger and heavier, its properties are similar to those of pine wood.
For the final design please check out the new attachements. Your design parts must be able to be fitted in the main base which can be seen in the new photos.
