Company to produce small 10 kW turbines

Daiwa House Industry Company, a building firm based in Osaka, has teamed up with manufacturing company Nikko to produce 10 kW wind turbines made from fibreglass-reinforced plastic. The NWG-10K turbine will generate 25,000 kWh a year in an average wind speed of 6 m/s, sufficient to satisfy the annual electricity needs of five households. Costing ยด15 million ($130.7m), the machine is expected to be used to generate electricity for factories, office premises and large-scale commercial buildings such as car parks, as well providing power to remote communities in mountainous areas and for mobile phone masts in hard to reach locations. The 11 metre tall machines have been nicknamed Kazenagasukujira, which literally translates into "the whale that lets the wind flow."
