The Rutland Windcharger is a brilliantly designed wind turbine designed with the extreme conditions of the ocean in mind. Capable of delivering power in the most diverse array of conditions, from a gentle breeze to a roaring gale, the Rutland turbine series offer practicality and resilience to the discerning boat owner.

With sleek and elegant design lines, slim profile and futuristic looks, the Rutland series of turbines offers great service to a variety of ocean going applications. The system can be coupled with an onboard solar system to provide continuous charge to batteries, allowing the sailor a peace of mind, knowing that there is always some spare electricity to be had.

Available in 12V or 24V configurations, the operation of most maritime equipment is facilitated with ease. When coupled with a solar panel these turbines are able to provide year round power generation in any environment, from the Marina to the Mediterranean. No boat owner should leave the harbor without a Rutland wind turbine set up on board.

The self furling design prevents the system from experiencing catastrophic failure in high winds, allowing for the blades to furl and reduce their profile in relation to the force applied by the wind. This helps to reduce overspin, excessive turbine speeds and overcharging of the batteries due to excessive current. Smart design allows for excessive power to be directed into a resistive coil, providing heating to the cabin.

Available at a competitive cost, the Rutland turbines offer extreme performance in adverse conditions which adds significant value to the pleasure craft. By maximizing the range of the yacht and decreasing its reliance on stored resources the craft becomes an even more useful tool.

A range of appliances can be operated with the turbine and if an inverter is used a multitude of 230V devices can be plugged in and powered on. This diversity of applications makes the Rutland series a desirable choice for any boat owner.

The majority of applications for the turbine will be as power generation for yacht owners. The extreme resilience and strength of the turbines makes them ideal for maritime applications. Beyond this, the turbine can be removed and reconnected on land, allowing for the sustainable generation of electricity and reduced reliance on external generation. This is great for those who want to be able to check their email while at their private lodge off the coast of Guyana, or if there is a need for power to the water pump, to refill the onboard water supply from a land based source.

The use of a controller to limit the charge of batteries, in order to prevent overcharging and possible damage to the system in event of extreme winds is advised by the manufacturer. Suitable controllers are available from suppliers of the Rutland turbines and the yacht owner should know their electricity requirements and choose the appropriately sized turbine for their application. Selection of the right turbine will lead to the most efficient on board electricity generation, at the best possible price.
