EcoWhisper, the world’s first silent turbine

Upstream

The ‘eco whisper’ silent wind turbine is an innovative wind turbine that generates

virtually no noise pollution. The device’s automatic slew drive system changes the direction of the turbine to face into the wind, generating electricity even from relatively light breezes.

‘EcoWhisper’ is rated for the production of 20kW of electricity. standing 21.1-meters tall and 6.5-meters in diameter, the turbine comprises 30 blades fanning out from a central hub, with both components made from aluminum.

The design reduces the probability of harm to birdlife, as well as offers a lower start-up speed and increased ability to collect wind. These attributes, in addition to its lack of noise, make the device suitable for a greater range of locations on and off the grid, including in urban environments.

A hinged pole design enables the turbine to be easily lowered for maintenance or during extreme weather, to prevent damage.
