BRIGHTON, Mich, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGE Energy, Inc. (OTCPink: CGEI) is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 10,808,677 to the Company, entitled, “Fluid driven vertical axis turbine.” This patent relates to a fluid driven vertical axis turbine and its remote-controlled blades that fold up and lay flat against the rotor in dangerous, high-wind situations. The patent also covers the manner in which the turbine’s segmented blade joints hydraulically lock together to make a strong, rigid blade, both in the open and closed position.
“The issuance of this sixth patent enhances the strength of our intellectual property protection around our vertical axis wind turbine,” said Bryan Zaplitny, President and CEO of CGE Energy. “This patent further supports our ongoing R&D efforts in bringing unique off-grid power solutions to markets where power availability is an issue.”
To date, CGE Energy has received five U.S. patents as well as one European patent for the technology. These independent patents cover many aspects of the technology, 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, as well as the turbine’s easy delivery transport method.
In recent months, CGE Energy has expanded its management team that oversees the technology division of CGE Energy and its subsidiaries, as well as expanded its strategic partners to bring this technology to market.
