SMI developed part for a new wind power project

Yesterday on Dutch television students of the TU in Delft told about their innovative project in wind power, with a kite. As sponsor SMI worked on a part of this system.

The students work with a kite of 25m2, a strong cable and a winch. This is what they need to turn on wind in to energy. The wind has influence on the movement of the winch, which produces energy because of the motion.
