SheerWind’s Wind Towers Won’t Harm Eagles

Dec 9 2013, 7:46am CST | by PR.com

Industry-changing INVELOX technology— a promising alternative to traditional wind harvesting— is friendly to humans, animals, and feathered friends.

Minneapolis, MN, December 09, 2013 --(PR.com )-- SheerWind, Inc., (sheerwind.com) innovator in high-performance, cost-efficient wind energy, has created INVELOX, a better way to harvest wind energy. The company’s patented INVELOX system takes the spinning blades of a turbine out of the sky and puts them safely at or below ground level, eliminating the risk for harming eagles or any wildlife. Not only does it eliminate the immediate issue of birds flying into the blades, it also puts an end to the issues from low frequency airborne vibration from the large turbine blades that have a negative influence on humans, wildlife, and livestock.

“This technology with no rotating blades at the top of a tower, will not harm eagles or any feathered friends,” says Cyndi Lesher, SheerWind’s Executive VP & Chief Administrative Officer and former president and CEO, NSP an Excel Energy Company. “By concentrating and accelerating wind, we create a similar effect to the natural wind corridors used by traditional wind towers. We can also install in low wind conditions, and close to human populations—safely out of the range of eagle flight patterns and nesting sights. With careful design and planning, who knows the eagles may find an INVELOX tower the perfect place to build a new nest.”

INVELOX technology has been reviewed and validated by a technical advisory board, a team of experts from major research universities and agencies. Prototypes were tested under controlled laboratory conditions, and test results were used to build and validate full-scale computational fluid dynamic models. Field data collected to date has validated results.

The technology requires no subsidies, is price competitive with traditional energy, and has far less environmental impact than turbine-topped towers.

“This is just the beginning,” says Lesher. “INVELOX is a deep rethinking of wind harvesting and will change the course of power generation.”
