A newly developed Dutch Delta Junior wind powered water pump turbine, manufactured by Dutch Industries of Regina, was on display at the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) conference in Quebec in October. The turbine features 24 radial blades, allowing high torque at low wind speeds, eliminating the need for a gear box. Isaak Cruson of Dutch Industries says 100 of the turbines have been sold in the last eight months, mostly to Canadian and US markets. "This smaller model is better suited to the end user," he says. Dutch Industries also says it plans further installations of Dutch Lagerwey turbines throughout Canada.
