Wind Power

A clean affordable way of generating power, we supply wind turbines throughout Australia

Wind turbines are now a familiar sight in many parts of Australia.


Several types are available suitable for the production of electricity for remote homes and farms.


Unfortunately, there are relatively few sites in North Queensland that are good wind turbine sites - most sites are only marginal.
This is true for both the very small types similar to those found on yachts as well as for larger units.

Aerogen - LVM wind generators

These well-known wind turbines are manufactured in the UK by LVM.


They are ideal wind generators for cruising yachts people, static and mobile caravans and many land applications with significant power use. They can provide sufficient power for cruising boats with much electrical equipment, even refrigeration. They operates safely and continuously in storms and can produce a maximum of 19 amps at 12 volts and 9.5 amps at 24 V continuously in high winds.

They feature the latest technology, and the expertise and experience gained since 1982. These models are the "third generation" and are being used all over the world for yachts, research institutes, military forces and remote area houses.

Aerogen2 - The ideal small wind generator for weekend yachtsmen, small yachts and low power land applications. Produces 0.5 amps at 12 knots and 1 amp at 19 knots. It can produce up to 4 amps intermittently, and is thermally protected. Mounting for 1" tube only.

 

Aerogen2 - LVM 212 12V 48W wind turbine
British made 12V wind turbine, rated at 12 watts @ 20 knots.
Max output 48 watts.

Output
Weekly output at 12 knots 85Ah
Dimensions
Fan diameter 580 mm
Turning diameter 700 mm
Weight 5.59 kg

1,812.00

Aerogen4 - Produces more power for the cruising yachtsman and static and mobile caravans. It can provide sufficient power for cruising yachts with significant electrical equipment - even refrigeration. Produces 2 amps at 13 knots, 6 amps at 20 knots, and up to 19 amps in 60 knot winds. Safe in storms as it is self limiting. Mounting for 1" or 1.5" tube.

Aerogen - LVM 412 12V 72W wind turbine

Aerogen6 - The powerful Aerogen is the ideal unit for live aboard yachtsmen, long stay caravaners, summer houses and professional applications with relative high power usage. Produces 4 amps at 12 knots and 10 amps at 20 knots. It is optimised to maintain continuous high outputs at higher wind speeds. It operates safely and continuously in 45 knot winds, producing 30 amps, but above that it requires some manual control, and therefore is not suitable for unattended applications.

Aerogen6 - LVM 612 12V 120W wind turbine
British made 12V wind turbine, rated at 120 watts @ 20 knots. Max output 360 watts. Requires 6TB12 regulator or equivalent.
