A new turbine. That is what the officials at Terra Moya Aqua Inc. have unveiled, claiming the design to have already had attracted interest from both domestic and foreign buyers. But, what is the USP that led to its steep rise in demand curve? Company officials said traditional propeller-driven turbines are able to convert 25 percent to 40 percent of wind power into transmittable energy. But TMA’s design is 43 percent to 45 percent efficient, creating up to 80 percent more power from the same wind. The blades of the new turbine move slower than on traditional propeller models. But, the company claims that it still can generate power, which means the turbines are less noisy and less dangerous to the flying creatures, specially the birds. They stand no taller than 96 feet, and hence the turbines can be used in industrial areas where taller propeller-driven models are not allowed.
