Designed to keep boat batteries charged, the GIGA wind turbine starts generating power from 2m/s of wind and is capable of producing up to 30w for a single unit and 60w for a double unit

A quiet and efficient wind generated power source has been developed by the team at GIGA Turbines on the Isle of Wight, UK. 

Designed to keep boat batteries charged, the GIGA wind turbine starts generating power from 2m/s of wind and is capable of producing up to 30w for a single unit and 60w for a double unit at wind speeds of 13m/s. The GIGA turbine comes with integral electronic braking meaning that there is no upper limit to the wind speed in which the turbine can generate power.

The GIGA 275 is available in 12V and 24V models, and is suitable for use with all types of leisure battery, providing trickle charging and power whenever the wind is blowing. This is a single turbine, but it also comes with a double turbine option as in the top image

The GIGA 275 is available in 12V and 24V models, and is suitable for use with all types of leisure battery, providing trickle charging and power whenever the wind is blowing. The unique pole fixing design allows removal of the turbine when necessary, making it suitable for motor cruisers and other craft which require batteries to stay charged.

Made from injection moulded UV stable ASA plastic, the sleek design of the GIGA Turbine also mak es it lightweight, durable and fully weatherproof. With an outer casing measuring only 325mm in diameter, the single turbine is the smallest wind turbine for leisure battery charging on the market.

According to Steve McLoughlin, CEO, “Being a ble to offer a wind turbine that can be easily removed and stowed on board, allows all boat owners the security of having fully charged batteries at all times without relying on solar power.”
