More about this turbine

Thousands of Passaats have found their way across the world in the last decades. These small wind turbines can be found in the Sahara desert, as well as in the Himalaya. Nowadays the Passaat is most often used for power saving at private homes, water pumping in remote locations and for empowering satellite communication systems e.g. in Murmansk.
