Primo Wind Update - Summer 2016

Spring has sprung!

Things have been really busy for Primo Wind since I returned from the Maui Energy Conference in mid-March. Bill was off with our blade designer working with a new motor/generator company to design, engineer and build a proprietary line of generators. The generator we now use works well but the new design will increase efficiency and output significantly.

ON THE ROAD... Recently, I have been on the road in the SF bay area to work with a production fabricator, the city of Pittsburg, and an engineering firm to design a proprietary smartphone data monitoring system. I also had the pleasure of visiting Omaha - my first visit there. Of course, anyone that knows about my passion for the ocean knows that Omaha is about as far from the sea as I ever want to be. However, Omaha was a great city with beautiful countryside (it may be different in winter), a world class zoo where I spoke with the head of ornithology to verify that our turbines won’t harm birds, an amazing music hall where I enjoyed the Omaha symphony, and I had a nice tour of the Peter Kiewit Institute at the University of Nebraska and the Durham School of Architecture, Engineering & Construction.
Then it was off to HDR for a presentation – the “D” of HDR is Durham of the school above. HDR was great with many people attending the presentation including several people from outside HDR including the head of the engineering department at Creighton University. He is interested in replacing the non-working VAWT on the campus with our turbines and we might develop a student project with an EnergiPlant.
Finally, we have been through a complete review with the Arctic Submarine Laboratory a division of the US Navy about how our system worked in the harsh conditions of the Arctic. The Navy was very pleased with the performance of our systems. We now have installed a second turbine for them at their San Diego headquarters and built a micro grid which will allow them to further test renewable energy solutions for the Navy.
Things have been moving at a fast pace for Primo and I look forward to a fun summer too!
