Helix Wind S594 turbine withstands 80 mph storm in Alaska

San Diego, October 27, 2009 – Helix Wind Corp., a renewable energy company, reported that its S594 wind turbine installation in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, performed well during a major winter storm, withstanding winds in excess of 80 mph, according to its owners, Joshua Williams and Lilia Howard of Dutch Harbor.

“We’d like to thank everyone at Helix,” said Williams. “The turbine was up and running just in time for our first winter storm, during which the S594 took wind gusts of greater than 80 mph like a champ.”

“I have lived and worked here for all of my adult life, sometimes dreading the cold, windy and wet winters,” Williams said. “After this last storm, as I watched our new wind turbine generate the sea winds back at us, it felt good to get even!”

Ian Gardner, Helix Wind’s CEO, said, “The entire Helix team is delighted with Mr. Williams’ testimonial and the news of the S594’s performance.”

The S594 turbine was installed in Dutch Harbor in June. With about 250 rain days per year, Dutch Harbor’s weather is considered among the worst in the world.

Helix Wind Corp. is engaged in the design, manufacturing and sale of small wind vertical axis turbine designed to generate 300 W, 1 kW, 2 kW, 2.5 kW, 4.5 kW, 10 kW and 50 kW of renewable electricity.
