This wind turbine produces electricity, hydrogen and charges electric vehicles

A US startup has developed a wind turbine significantly different from others on the market. The Kohilo Cyclone is a multi-purpose system that generates renewable energy.

The technology was developed by US startup Kohilo Wind and is distributed in Europe by Belgian company Wingardium Energy.

The wind turbine is a vertical axis turbine and can produce electricity as well as hydrogen even when there is no wind. What’s more, the system works as a charging station for electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles.

This is not a concept system. Kohilo turbines are already operating in Israel, the Philippines, Brazil and the US, and an 8 MW turbine will be built this year in the Netherlands.

A large turbine of this size costs €20-30 million (includes installation costs), but has a life of 40-45 years and is made from recycled materials.

The standard unit has a capacity of 1.6 MW, weighs 126 tonnes and is 74 metres high. For maximum performance, the turbine must be installed in the middle of a 39-acre area of land on which there are no obstructions.

The Kohilo Cyclone has no moving outer parts so it poses no danger to birds and bats. The system produces electricity at winds between 1.6 and 56 m/s.
