To keep the system (SCEE) always facing into the wind and allow it to pivot on the mast (1), it can be orientated by a tail vane (K) which is fixed, via a support, to the nacelle (J).
Therefore, the turbine comprises four vanes, which are planar over the entire length thereof, which, in the top part thereof are provided with a kite-like element with a view to positioning said vanes into the wind.
The generator and the rainwater collector are mounted to pivot with respect to the support, and fins cause the wind turbine blades to face into the wind.
The upper end face (2201), the lower end face (2202), the windward surface (2203), the wind receiving surface (2204), and the support beam (2205) inside the cylindrical body are made of honeycomb boards.
It makes the effective wind receiving area of the vertical blades (3, 11, 22) in tailwind direction greater than that in upwind direction so as to increase the generating efficiency.
The cylindrical wall section that faces the wind covers an angle of less than 90°, which makes it possible to form the wind entrance opening with larger dimensions than the wind exit opening.
Doing so, increases efficiency of a wind turbine located in the wake by transferring energy to the wake that was lost when the wind passed through the upwind turbine.
As the masthead bends when facing the wind due to the wind pressure, the air flow in the higher region of the sail can not be discontinued.
Such enhanced horizontal components enable sufficient torque to be developed between the vessel (10) and the turret (20) so that the vessel may weathervane due to environmental forces such as wind and current.
The two power harvesting devices move under the influence of incoming wind to orient themselves such that the apex of its 'V'-shape structure always faces the incoming wind.
With the apex of the 'V' facing the wind, the blades are oriented to intercept this wind and to cause movement of the conveyor drive to which they are attached.
