Two days ago the Mühlheide Windpower Museum became one more wind turbine richer. This time one of the first Kukate wind turbines from the early 1980s came in.
These are solid, purely mechanically running turbines in the range up to 10kW which can easily be produced by small enterprises or single persons on their own. The Kukate concept is also applicable for developing countries.
This process was made possible by manager Jaeger who personally managed the transport. The owner, Mr. Droste from Diepenau, is an active member of Mühlheide Windpower Museum and quickly agreed on the transportation of the turbine – after it got wrecked by a storm.
