Construction to Start on Rotating Wind-Power Tower


Remember way back last May when we talked about the twirling tower that seemed, well, off the wall? Surprise, surprise, it is set to viagra online canada start construction in Dubai this month.

Each of viagra buying online the buy generic ultram online 59 floors of the tower will be able to rotate independently of each other, and in between them will be wind turbines to generate all the power needed to run the tower, plus, apparently, several others. The tower is expected to generate 10 times the power it needs through solar panels on the roof and http://www.sinai.org.il/canadian-healthcare 48 wind turbines, each of which are expected to generate as much as 0.3 megawatts of electricity, creating an estimated 1,200,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually. These are some seriously big numbers…and we’ll see how they pan out.

As for the construction, the floors will be made of 12 individual units all created in a factory and spit out fully complete, with plumbing, electrical, air conditioning and everything else in place. The floors will then be fitted to a concrete tower core According to architect David Fisher, designer of levitra without prescriptions the building, this construction will make it highly earthquake resistant, as well as just plain neat to fda approves levitra watch as folks push the button that makes their floor spin.

 

An international press conference is set for June 24 in New York. We’ll keep tabs.

Where is this set to be constructed? It is difficult to take this article seriously and believe that it is legitimate when the ojalafilms.com author cannot even provide the most basic information, such as where is this being built, and by whom?

1) Clayton, try reading the whole article, not just the title.

2) I'm betting that the mexico levitra individual floors would have enough mass to move only very slowly, so BPV maaay not be an issue. At the very least, you shouldn't be able to feel the centri-petal/fugal (depending on your reference frame) force. I would think the turbines themselves would move much faster than the floors. It would just be an utterly impractical design otherwise.

I don't buy it
written by Py Bedgoo, June 16, 2008
The only reason the floors rotate is the novelty of changing your view. I applaud the buy branded cialis idea that this thing generates more power than it uses, but I will be VERY impressed if it can achieve anything close to that!

How would it affect the people living in the building from all the EMF that's getting emitted from whatever units that generate and transport the electricity. Not even mentioning how it will affect other electrical and household units.

"...to start construction in Dubai this month." and since the article date is set in June, that would be June. Please READ a little....just a little. Everytime you don't read an angel loses it's wings.

I can't see this having any more of a negative health effect then siting beside your cars alternator. Electromagnetic radiation emitted by generators is in the low frequency AC ranges, and has no negative health effects (due to http://www.accessibleadventuresvt.org/best-online-viagra it's low penetration depth in skin.

noise?
written by wh, June 16, 2008
How much noise is produced when rotating your floor or your neighbor above you? Is there a 10PM curfew so if you try to rotate your view in the middle of the night, the system won't let you? Are the wind turbines noisy?
The best part about this is the concept of building most of tramadol from mexico it in a factory then assembling the www.bsd-berlin.de pieces on site.

Wait to see! : In response to your comment. The people won't have to worry about anything because EMF has never been shown to hurt anyone anyway. So why don't you recede into your eco-wave and be eco-friendly and not use non-eco devices like your computer so we won't ever have to eco-hear from you again smilies/grin.gif

EMF not hurt anyone? / plumbing
written by Paranor, June 16, 2008
Dude.. there have been several studies done on the effects of EMF radiation and potential harm on the human physiology. Studies have shown there is a marked increase in mental disorders to people living in close proximity to power sub-stations and high-voltage power lines (running at 60Hz anyway). So don't say EMF doesn't do anything, we don't have all the info yet, but it's sure not looking good.

As for the plumbing, i think it would all be put within the floor section, then attacted to look there best price levitra online an "O-Ring" system which allows the connections from the floor to move independant, but sealed within this ring. At least that's the 1st logical method I can come up with smilies/cheesy.gif

Possibly inaccurate wind power calculati
written by jp, June 16, 2008
The linked article refers to "horizontal" wind turbines. Conventional wind energy vernacular takes that to mean "horizontal axis" systems, which are not illustrated. Instead, vertical axis Savonious-style blades are illustrated, which are never as efficient as propeller-style blades. Even giving them the benefit of several doubts, and assuming 70m diameter and overnight cialis 3m tall (scale being hard to judge), it might take a 50 mph wind to coax half the power they claim out of one of those turbines. 4000 hours of 50 mph winds is problematic itself. Double the visionwidget.com diameter or height of a blade to cut the windspeed in half.

Sounds impressive, but the generating power works out to www.aldentheatre.org 137 kW average. Just the air-conditioning energy demand will be way higher. The Dubaians will leave behind the most interesting ruins once the oil stops.

As an American in Dubai, I have to disagree with you Axiom. There is nothing in Dubai that is not equally and as easily available in the US. I guess they like to build more impressive buildings than the US, but thats about it.

Axel - It seems very likely doesn't it... As an architecture student I've discussed the cheap viagra on line developments in Dubai in a few classes; some professors say the Dubaians may become international leaders in sustainable design, or at least they could foot the bill. Personally, I think they're more interested in building large aw-striking towers, and oh yea, they spin and generate electricity so it's good for the environment. Right... Once they've spent who knows how many billions, maybe trillions of levitra canada dollars from oil revenue, we'll see if they can sustain their city on tourism...

You certainly don't know Dubai
written by Hyder Alamgir, June 28, 2008
All those who think that this project is not feasible have no idea of what Dubai is... the world's tallest building is being built in Dubai. It's already the tallest and still in construction. A taller building than the one under construction is already being planned. It's speculated to order discount cialis online be around 1.4 KM tall. The current one is expected to rise to 800m. Dubai's building the world' largest metro and the world's largest airport... in fact, an airport city. Dubai already has the world's only 7-star hotel, the world's only undersea hotel, the world's largest indoor ski resort... and plenty more... need sources, lookup google... Dubai is everywhere!

I'm deeply skeptical about the energy production of the building which is overstimated of around 50 times. But the design is quiet good and the technical problems for plumbing, electricity etc in my opinion are resoluble. For the plumbing i would make two tanks one for fresh water and one for stained water on the moving part of the house, i would put eight or sixteeen columns with fresh water/dark waters in the concrete core. The tanks will be provided with a computerized valve and www.fluestertuete.de a flexible pipe only a few meters long that will connect to the nearest water column when the movement of http://www.jubileecampaign.nl/cialis-sales-in-canada the floor ends. For electricity i's only a problem of electromagnetic coupling and induction, two halves of a little transformer can be holded few millimeters apart, one half on the moving part of the house, the other half on the fixed part of the house. This system will have only a few more losses than a solid transformer. For electical supply you can use in a simpliest way brush contacts. For internet: wireless. No gas, only induction cooking devices.

I enjoy building things too especially new stuff. I remember when we were building the World Trade Center. My co-workers said there was not way the towers could ever be knocked down. I said just wait till one floor falls and see what happens. They laughed. What's going to happen when someone decides to fly a plane in the side of this thing?
Stranger things have happened.
Country and proud of it.
