Wind Turbines Evaluated by DOST-NCR

Ret.BGen Victor Corpus developed the Nautilus Wind Turbine 

It is a matter of fact that we have to be weaned away from generating energy by using fossil fuels. The environmental and health costs of fossil fuels are still to be used are just too high because of Climate Change, Environmental degradation and population pressure needing more energy generation.

Renewable sources of energy are now being focused on my many industrialized and developed nations and these have been subject to international agreements and covenants reducing carbon emissions.

The Department of Science and Technology – National Capital Region (DOST-NCR) under its Regional Director (RD) Jose B. Patalinjug III led efforts in evaluating a wind turbine machine in Pasay City.

The experts convened by the DOST-NCR RD evaluated the Nautilus Wind Turbine designed by retired BGen. Victor Corpus.

The technical evaluation team was composed of department engineers from the DOST Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST – MIRDC), Industrial Technology and Development Institute (DOST-ITDI), Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST - PCIEERD), Philippine National Oil Company – Renewable Corporation (PNOC-RC),  and the Renewable Energy Management Bureau of the Department of Energy(DOE-REMB). These were also joined by engineering faculty from the De La Salle University, Rizal Technological University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines and Technological University of the Philippines.

The aim of the evaluation is to determine the feasibility of the Nautilus Wind Turbine with regards to its commercialization.  If it's determined to be feasible, eventual assistance can be provided by DOST to further its research and development with regards to commercial production and installation of the wind turbine for electric generation purposes.
