Contract: W15P7T-11-C-A627
Award Amount: $729,993.00
 

Abstract:

Pine Ridge Products, LLC will introduce a tactical wind turbine that is highly efficient, robust, easy to use, maintain and transport. The Army is requesting a renewable energy system to reduce the amount of fuel used for small power loads. A vehicle mounted wind turbine system would improve self sufficiency on site by decreasing the need for fossil fuels. This will increase reliability of communication and intelligence systems. Our turbine is designed with a large rotor and low RPM. This PMG will deliver superior results compared to high speed, high RPM turbines. Our design team has years of experience in small wind turbines and renewable energy power electronics design and manufacturing. In addition to the military application, this turbine would fill a gap in the commercial market for a rugged, reliable, low speed wind turbine for use in telecom power, SCADA, and other remote small power applications
