SheerWind announced a pilot project to be commissioned at Dubai Aluminium PJSC (“DUBAL”), which operates one of the world’s largest aluminum smelting facilities and has a power generating capacity of nearly 2,400 MW. SheerWind’s relationship with DUBAL will begin with a 250 kW INVELOX wind power generation pilot project. DUBAL’s interest in SheerWind’s technology is to reduce DUBAL’s carbon footprint and its operations’ impact on the environment.
SheerWind’s INVELOX technology provides high-performance, cost-efficient wind energy:
- Operating at wind speeds as low as 1 mile per hour.
- Reducing installation capital cost to less that $750 per kW.
- 90% less land use than traditional wind power generation utilities.
- Increasing energy production capacity to 72%.
- No harm to humans, animals, or flying creatures.
“This installation is very exciting for SheerWind. We see this as the beginning of a great partnership with a
company that is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and finding ways to make a difference globally,”
said Steve Hill, COO of SheerWind. “This partnership will assist in SheerWind’s mission to provide affordable,
clean, electrical energy to anyone anywhere.”
“We are very pleased to be the pioneer in this innovative pilot project in the GCC, especially as the project
will contribute measurably to environmental conservation,” said DUBAL’sTayeb Al Awadhi. “As a responsible
corporate citizen, we are committed to sustainable principles. Moreover, the project is closely aligned with
our corporate emphasis on continuous improvement through innovation.”
