Qr6 Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
Quietrevolution (VWT Power Limited)
The Qr6 is a helical Vertical Axis Wind Turbine designed for urban areas.
The Quietrevolution Qr6 is a vertical axis wind turbine designed specifically for urban environments. The design eliminates downtime from changing wind direction due to vertical axis design, possesses an aerodynamic helical blade design to minimize vibration, and has quiet operation to allow for installation in public places. The Qr6 vertical axis wind turbine is designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom.
Targeted countries include: United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland, France, Belgium

Is it a turbine, kite, etc?
How tall is this system and/or how high above ground does it operate?
The radius of the system as it is turned by the wind
What type of controls are used, remote diagnostics, etc.
• Blades: Carbon fiber
• Generator: Direct drive, mechanically integrated, weather sealed permanent magnet generator
• Power control: Peak power tracking, optimizes turbine output for all sites and windspeeds
• Roof mounting: 6m mast
• Tower mounting: 15m or 18m ground mounted
• Remote monitoring: Event log can be accessed via PC. Remote monitoring stores operation, average wind speeds and kW hours of electricity generated
- 5.5m height, 3.1m diameter, and 16m2 swept area.
- With the mast, the height is either 6m or 18m.
• Weight: Turbine weight is 450kg with a total system weight of 1,650kg
Provided by Quietrevolution.
Has a design life of 30 years +.
QuietRevolution outlines is goals here, included producing energy on the site of consumption and reducing the carbon footprint of urban centers.
Auto- shutdown sensors incorporated into the design to detect any uncharacteristic movement of or impact to the turbine.
The generator is a through bore permanent magnet motor/generator unit directly coupled to the rotor. It is used both as a generator and as a motor to the spin the rotor up in response to initial or sharp increases in wind speed.
A three-phase grid connection is required. Please contact Quiet Revolution if there are requirements for single phase or off grid/battery version.
