A Flexible Wind Turbine
~From a TV Antenna Pole to a wind powered system 


This wind turbine is made to be adapted on a standard TV Antenna Pole. It’s blades are designed as an alternative to the increasing use of injected plastic and composite materials involved in the mass production of personnal wind turbines. Instead, this model of turbine uses a simple system of blade made by an aluminium frame which can be covered by a fabric of any kind, as long as this fabric is not elastical. 
In this way, the wind turbine can be partly crafted by a tailor and the farbics he is used to work with.

This one has been made using econd hand polyester fabric from a boat center. By using this simple and flexible process of manufacturing, this structure can be transformed according to the exposure it needs.

Blades are connected to the rotor using standard aluminium extrusion. They are modified in order to propose several blade position according to the geography and the specificity of the wind exposure.
