Roof ridge windmill development

May 27, 2018

The roof ridge windmill can be made in a horizontal and vertical principle.
Both types are currently in the design / prototype face.
Designing these windmills is an excellent study object.
Pupils of the Technacium of Helen Parkhurst have taken on a part of this project.
They are studying the type of windmill and are working on it.
The windmill will fit into a standard frame.
These standard frames will be determined by the FFABW and will be approximately 90 x 55 x 30 cm.
The frames can be easily coupled.
Fit pieces make it run through the entire roof ridge.
There is also a shield against flying birds.
There is a sloping roof and it connects with the existing roof covering.
In a frame, 1 horizontal or several vertical windmills can turn.
The windmill module is easily exchangeable.
