In Saudi Arabia, will start to produce electricity with the help of

The Research team at Queen's University of science and technology on behalf of king Abdullah proposed a new method for the production of wind power. To do this, engineers positioning of the turbine is not near the Ground and in the air, fixing them on some sort of kites.

Exploring the effectiveness of wind turbines under the leadership of George Stenchikov, engineers of the University came to the conclusion that the air flow near the Ground is extremely unstable and there's nothing you can do about it. But, after studying the received information from NASA about the strength of the wind at different heights, they were able to calculate the most good points and the height to secure aeroturbine new type and began testing.

Strong winds that constantly blow at high altitude, can help to solve the problem of efficiency of wind turbines, so the engineers came to the conclusion that kites-turbine connected to the ground cables is a great replacement for traditional wind turbines.

If necessary, they will be able to rise above or go down while at the height of from two to three kilometers. Stenchikov team working on the implementation of the plan Kingdom''s Vision 2030, under which the Kingdom would have to begin a smooth transition to renewable energy sources.
