CGE Energy (CGEI) Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent for the Innovative Installation Process for their WIND-e20 Wind Turbine
BRIGHTON, Mich., June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGE Energy, Inc. (OTCPink:CGEI) announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 9,970,410 to the Company, entitled, “Installation and erection assembly for an elongated structure.” This patent covers the proprietary equipment used for the easy delivery and crane-less installation of CGE Energy’s WIND•e20® vertical axis wind turbine.
CGE’s newly issued patent covers a hydraulic installation frame, devised to support their WIND•e20® turbine (or other wind turbines or elongated structures) in a folded arrangement for transportation on a trailer, and to support assembly and erection of the turbine. This transport frame enables the turbine to be delivered on a flatbed truck and can lie flat for maintenance without the need of a crane. This diverges from the way traditional horizontal wind turbines are assembled after delivery, which typically require costly cranes for installation and repair.
"This unique patented technology offers easy turbine transportation using a single truck and trailer," said Bryan Zaplitny, President and CEO of CGE Energy, as well as, one of the solution's inventors. "The expansion of our intellectual property portfolio is an integral aspect of CGE Energy's turbine development and commercialization strategy aimed at positioning the WIND•e20® as a first-in-class onsite energy generator.”
This patent adds to the list of other key patents that are owned by CGE, including having a fluid driven turbine that generates power from wind blowing from any direction, its generator and primary components located in the base of the turbine, and hydraulic locking joints within the turbine’s segmented blades, which allow them to collapse flat against the rotor.
CGE Energy’s strategic manufacturing partner for WIND•e20® is Roush, headquartered in Livonia, Michigan. CGE Energy is also working with Roush’s team to patent innovations that will make WIND•e20® an integral part of the community, bringing positive impact to communications, life safety, homeland security and emergency response.
