We are one of very few small wind energy manufacturers worldwide to make effective use of carbon composites for rotor blades. The rotor blades manufactured by Unitron sport lowest weight / meter length with 300% more strength!!
Development work also taken up using ‘NANO CARBON’ technology to replace physical carbon material in our rotor blades.
Successfully demonstrated and commissioned several “Wind Electric Direct Water Pumping systems” in Africa. These systems directly drive conventional 3 phase submersible / surface pumps without use of inverters and batteries.
Eight villages electrified under UNDP programme for the Kingdom of Malawi ( west Africa ) electrified with 20.5 KW hybrid system comprising of 3XUE42 / 4.2 KW + 7.9KW solar , this system powers 100- 120 rural homes , about 300 street lights and a water pump , community freezer and a Satellite TV.
World’s first “MINI WIND FARM” went on steam during DEC ‘07 . This 0.4 MW ( 48nos X 2 groups of UE42 / 4.2 KW wind generators project demonstrates extracting wind energy at 25% PLF for low average wind speeds (< 5 m/s) which was thought not feasible up till now. According to WORLD BANK, it is only 12 – 15% world’s land mass has potential for multi-megawatt wind farming , 10 – 15% is of no use for wind energy but about 60 – 64% has average winds that is suitable for small turbines.
First Urban 150KW hybrid wind farm will be going on steam by end of FEB ’09 at Suzlon Energy Corporate campus , Pune city , this project is designed comprising of 20 wind generators ( UE42plus ) of 5.1 Kw rating with Roof-Top Photovoltaic panels of 48KW , this is estimated generate about 1,75,000 KWH per annum and will meet about 7.5% of the energy requirement of Suzlon’s campus
