Haakon - Eolic energy for polar stations

Eolic energy for polar stations
Haakon pays tribute to the name Roald Amundsen (norwegian explorer, the first man to reach the south pole) chose to baptize the big polar plain in 1911: Haakon VII's Vidde (King Haakon the 7th).
This concept is an horizontal axis eolic generator for polar stations, capable to create up to 730W in average south pole wing speeds of 5,5m/s. Enough power to provide heating and lighting to a 4 to 6 people camp.
It's a robust design with components that can resist very low temperatures and high wind speeds.
