Wolt / Wind Energy in Vineyards

Wolt
Wolt

'WOLT' makes an efficient dual exploitation of modern vineyards possible, by enabling both wind AND electricity to be harvested. Working on the principle of the 'Windbelt Technology', it generates electricity by means of a wind-oscillated band instead of using a conventional rotor. The electricity yield exceeds the energy requirements for the wine production and ensures an equable balance of energy within ecological wine-growing. /Low-priced robust construction / recyclable / low-tech / computer-monitored / low-maintenance / functions even during low wind / output per element ca. 3W / as an integrated system 'WOLT' generates over 3 kwh per ha
