'FIDU' rotor

'FIDU' rotor

We all remember the charming little blow up chair ‘Plopp’, which uses a production process invented by the Faculty of Computer-Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) at the ETH Zurich under Dr. Ludger Hovestadt. Last week, Oskar Zieta, designer of ‘Plopp’ and collaborater at the ETH Zürich, presented together with ETH students a new rather advanced design of a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT), which was developed using the same ‘FIDU’ technology. These small but efficient turbines are designed for individual use. “We calculated that two turbines can supply an avarage 4 persons family household”, Zieta mentioned. The low weight, minimal material consumption and the low cost of production are a big step in the development of the generation of renewable energy.
