Dumat the Octopus
Increasing wind turbine performance
The Dumat the Octopus project rethinks the basic design of wind turbines, with a new system shaped like an octopus. This system requires less concrete and makes it possible to lower production costs. The wind turbine height is raised by 10 metres, improving the wind take-up of its blades, as well as overall performance of the ensemble. As a result, it makes for lower costs and more renewable energy.
Project developed by EDF group.
- Increased productivity
- 30% less concrete
- More competitive renewable energy
