Israeli Leviathan Energy has developed a new kind of quiet and environmentally friendly turbines, particularly suitable for installation in urban areas. The wind turbine “Tulip”, has its name due to the resemblance to flower, which the petals are two blades that rotate around a vertical axis.

The system is 4.2 meters tall, and 2.5 meters wide, while its weight is 350 kg. The blade diameter is 2.75 meters. According to the information provided by the manufacturer, due to the small size and lack of vibration, the system is sufficient for two persons installation on the roof without the need for a crane.

This original design reduces the environmental impact from a number of other points of view. As Daniel Farb said, founder and CEO of Leviathan: “Wind Tulip is aesthetically pleasing, and does not represent any danger for humans and birds in particular.”

The first prototypes are already installed in Dimona in southern Israel, and the company prepares for product launch beyond Israeli borders, particularly in the U.S. market, which is currently the most promising market. The estimated life-cycle of the turbine is 20 years and the return on investment varies from 3 – 8 years.

The company has recently won another award for innovative ideas on the IDEAS Cleantech Open, swelling which is designed to promote new projects in energy and environmental protection in the United States.
