MANUFACTURE OF ARGENTINE DESIGN

A project with government and aid backing has been launched in Indonesia to stimulate widespread manufacture of a small wind energy converter for low and moderate wind speeds. The machine has been designed in Argentina. News of the initiative was broken at last month's South Asia '96 renewables conference by Erico Spinadel of the University of Buenos Aires. He said the 500/1000 W vertical axis unit was rugged, cheap and easy to make and install. It is now to be made by selected local enterprise workshops in Indonesia. "Once the performance tests on different sites are analysed, the final step will be mass-production of units by Indonesian enterprises through joint ventures with Argentine firms for some specific components," he said.
