WHAT MICROGRIDS HAVE BEEN NEEDING IN A WIND TURBINE

  • A Revolution in Quiet. Utilizing ultra-low friction technology, AMW’s new technology wind turbine produces a minimal noise footprint in the 30-40 dB range at a distance of 25 meters making it ideal for virtually any environment be it high-density city use, suburban applications, or rural settings
  • Compact and Aesthetic. The sleek, modern design of our new wind turbine allows for easy integration into a variety of applications. Its compact and low profile features ensure minimal impact on the aesthetics of the surrounding area while delivering powerful energy output.
  • Scalability. While perfect for the emerging microgrid market, AMW’s wind turbine is scalable to a broad spectrum of sizes and applications giving way to future expansion of this technology.
  • Third Party Tested. Global engineering consultant Maya HTT utilized Siemens Digital Industries Software to analyze and run simulations on AMW’s new wind turbine technology. They found it offers innovative aerodynamic design that can boast industry-leading efficiency by capturing more wind energy through its airfoil designs, circumferential shroud and two-stage contra-rotating rotors to generate electricity with remarkable effectiveness.
  • Reliability and Durability. Built to withstand the harshest weather conditions, AMW’s wind turbine is engineered with robust and durable materials such as carbon fiber, titanium, and stainless steel.
  • No gearbox. No power generation module. Unlike traditional wind turbines, AMW’s design technology does not require a gearbox or power generation module. The low friction design of our wind turbine ensures longevity and consistent performance and its low maintenance costs are enabled by the absence of a gearbox and traditional power generation module often found in legacy wind turbines. Its air-washed design eliminates the need for oil-based lubricants and coolant systems compared with massive legacy wind turbines that often hold 400-700 gallons of oil that require scheduled replacement.
  • Smart Grid Integration. AMW’s new wind turbine comes standard with advanced smart grid digital AI technology in accordance with the International Energy Agency’s (IAE) Smart Grid initiative. This global initiative introduces sustainable economic development, energy security and ensures seamless integration into existing energy infrastructures to improve grid stability at the local level. This easily networked technology enables ready expansion of renewable energy sources.
  • Sustainable Manufacturing. Airborne Motorworks is committed to sustainability throughout the product lifecycle. AMW’s wind turbine is manufactured using eco-friendly recyclable materials and processes reducing its total carbon footprint, and is planned to be the first product manufactured at our new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

The AMW wind turbine is soon to enter the final stages of its durability testing and is expected to be ready for production manufacturing in early 2025.
