Lead America: Mass Megawatts Wind Power has delivered a larger wind-powered,
water pump system in Colorado.
said Mass Megawatts water pump system provides a low-cost solution for water
delivery applications commonly needed on farms.
preliminary findings, the system is delivering water at an accelerated rate
that is substantially larger than other water pumping systems in the area. A
more detailed analysis will be conducted over the coming weeks to further
validate these findings.
wind-powered unit is developed by Mass Megawatts. It provides a lower-cost
solution when compared to more traditional water pumping systems, including
those powered by diesel generators.
wind-powered, water pump leverages the wind augmenter technology to increase
the wind velocity directed at the wind turbine. This results in a significant
increase in power output which provides considerable torque for mechanical
wind-powered system is designed to operate efficiently without high towers or
complicated, expensive technologies. The system utilizes off-the-shelf parts,
is capable of operating in lower wind-speed locations, and with reduced
maintenance costs. Production of additional wind power units is underway at the
company’s manufacturing facility located in Morrison, Colorado.
