Wind turbines convert the energy from the wind into mechanical energy. This kinetic energy is then used to drive a generator that converts this energy into electricity.

The wind generator embodies long established high efficiency generator principles, combined with turbine airflow expertise. Low inertia of the carefully balanced all-aluminium rotor assembly enables maximum advantage to be taken of the average weather conditions. The turbine drive of the permanent magnet generator is widely acknowledged to be the most efficient design. When mounted vertically, it takes advantage of wind from any direction. All electrical components are encapsulated and the unit is virtually maintenance free. There are no slip rings to cause interference against electrical equipment. The outlet supply cable to the battery cannot become entangled. There are no separate blades and the unit is vibration free and silent in operation.
The Forgen 500 is designed as a trickle charger and may be permanently connected to the battery. This turbine has a new generator developed in conjunction with The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bristol University. The new model now produces 50% more output than the earlier machine. The Forgen VaWT provides: Vibration & Noise Free operation, People-safe for pushpit mount, Sail-safe for mast mount, Pole monting.Forgen 1000: Starting from € 880 ex vat.The Forgen 1000 gives a much higher charge and has been designed for larger multiple battery installations usually associated with boats over 35ft. in length or for wall mounting such as the end of a building. The use of a Forgen ensures easy start up after overnight or week long mooring of sailing craft. Both machines can produce in an average 15 knot wind speed either 12 or 23 amp in a 24 hour period (depending on battery condition.) In extreme wind conditions, the turbine is self-regulating.
The electronic circuitry is also internally protected against overload, neither machine requiring a regulator to be fitted. Parked caravans, electric fence units, sea buoys or other remotely situated electronic equipment are also typical uses for the Forgen. Features – Low wind speed vertical axis changer – Easy fixing to masts, rails and other surfaces – Safe and silent in operation – Non blade design for user safety – No twisting of connected cable – No maintenance required – Sealed Bearings – Corrosion resistant external components – Electrical circuit fully protected, solid state rectifier We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Artic Air Conditioning as its Forgen agents to cover the Midlands region.
Artic specialises in fitting mobile air conditioning to caravans and mobile homes Self Sustaining Obstruction/Warning Light A high visibility all round light for marking aviation obstructions, nautical navigation features or danger zones which requires little attention or maintenance. This light uses either wind or solar power, or both, to provide electricity for light beacons for aviation or sea navigation, and for marking danger.
