Urban Flow / turbine, wind power generator

Urban Flow
Urban Flow

The wind turbine Honeycomb with its outstanding provocative design gives an offensive example how to contribute to the ideal of a green, sustainable and wealthy metropolis: hidden resources on windy roofs are explored to create new resources for the cities inhabitants. The hexagonal shroud around the rotor allows individual “comb”-arrangements to meet any electricity need. In the aerodynamic point of view winds are accelerated and canalized through the nozzle-diffusor shaped inside of the shroud. Consisting out of only 47 different parts, which fit all into an elevator, the turbine is cheap in production and installation.
