Japanese Firm to Build World's Largest Power-Generating Wind Tower


Specialists at the Japanese company ZENA Systems are working on a revolutionary wind energy generator.

The hexagonal structure is expected to be 50 meters tall and will play the role of a large scoop that captures wind from all directions, compresses it and then runs the air through a wind tunnel to a chain of turbines that convert it into electricity.

The project not only boasts wind-power system, but also a desalination plant, energy storage and a visitor center.

According to the Japanese firm, the on-site energy storage represents a new energy storage system that gathers power produced by the Wind Tower system.

It would be interesting to note that the system utilizes vanadium concentrated solution that is diluted using nano water and clean water. ZENA Systems looks forward to build its tower in Kurume, Fukuoka, reports Inhabitat.
