New look stackable wind turbine

IceWind, based in Reykjavík, designs and manufactures small vertical axis wind turbines for telecom towers and residential applications such as homes, cabins and farms. The company was founded in 2012 but development goes back to 2008. The IceWind vertical axis wind technology has been designed in response to the growing demand for renewable technologies. It demonstrates that turbines can be an elegant, quiet, durable, cost effective and nearly maintenance free solution for energy production.
 
IceWind also provides installation and maintenace services for the IceWind windturbines and related installed equipment, such as battery checking, solar cell installations and the installment of logging equipment. IceWind is currently a licensed dealer for IC-Meter, specialized in analysis of indoor climate and energy issues.
 
IceWind's small scale vertical axis wind turbines provide 100% green energy in extreme weather conditions as well as low wind areas with virtually no need of maintenance. Currently there are two product lines in production. The IceWind RW turbine is specially designed for generating power for telecom towers and surveillance spots and the IceWind CW is aimed for residential applications, such as homes or cabins - whether connected to the grid or not. All IceWind turbines are hand made in Iceland from the best material available, such as stainless steel, carbon fiber and aircraft grade aluminum. With patent pending solutions IceWind is able to make the turbines produce electricity in very low and very high winds with no need to cut-out. The IceWind turbines are currently in a testing phase and will be available soon on selected locations.
