Sharjah engineering students create wind turbine

on .

Three engineering students from the University of Sharjah have created an airborne wind turbine suitable for tropical climates.

The students prepared a design concept for countries such as the UAE with low average wind speed where conventional wind turbines do not work efficiently.They analysed wind speed data for the past five years.

The students, Noha Diab, Somaya Esmat and Yusra Ba Matraf, worked under the supervision of Dr Salih Akour.

A prototype will later be manufactured.
