At Bogey Venlo we are designing wind turbines for greater altitudes.
A paradigm shift in the approach to wind turbine design is needed.

  • Dec. 2013: He has a rough draft of "Four steps program"  which you may ask him about.
  • January 2014   The AWE community lost a star: Dr. Beaujean.      See: Notice.

Editor's note: For some mindset behind his move toward huge AWES, meditate over his spiral for transport of large prefabricated pipes and complex cables, etc.  Floating Spiral Method.  http://www.eurospiraal.com/articles/OPT+pic1.pdf

UpperWindpower editorial: Consider a complex spiraled hull holding water turbines; tug it out to sea and fly traction kites to pull the full device broadside while making electricity and manufacturing chemicals including hydrogen. Products could be stored in another spiraled complex and towed to ports for release of the products.

  • "anything up to 1,350 m" for diameter of the turbine. Hence, scaling from toy to power station seems to be accepted in his vision.   ~JoeF
  • He recognizes that the fundamental concept of flygens that fly themselves for launch and landing and counter-rotating turbine blades for generating electricity aloft is not novel; however, his entire scheme seems to be worked out with proprietary aspects.  ~JoeF
