By reading the file, you could have learned that there were 34 Calorius manufactured:
* " The performance of one of Denmark's first small heat-producing wind turbines was officially tested
. [Built in series,] lhe Calorius type 37 – 9 meters high and equipped with a 5 meter diameter rotor – produced 3,5 kilowatts of heat for a wind speed of 11 m/s (strong breeze, Beaufort 6). This is comparable to the heat produced by smaller boilers used for space heating. Between 1993 and 2000, the Danish company Westrup built a total of 34 wind turbines, 17 of which were still in operation in 2012.

Always the same link that leads to nothing.
I asked bing:
Search for “Calorius type 37”
Message received. I found information about Calorius type 37 on the web page wind-turbine-models.com. The wind turbine type 37 is a production of Calorius, a manufacturer from Denmark. Since year 1993, Calorius is no longer active. The rated power of Calorius type 37 is **3,50 kW**. The rotor diameter of the Calorius type 37 is **5 m**. The rotor area amounts to **19,6 m²**. The wind turbine is equipped with **2 rotor blades**.
And on the site there is nothing about the production of heat ...
Another question :
Search for “wind turbine calorius heat production”
I couldn't find any information about the heat output of the Calorius type 37 wind turbine. However, I found an article on the lowtechmagazine.com site that explains how a mechanical wind turbine with an oversized braking system can be an economical, efficient and sustainable1 heating solution. The article explains that renewable energy is almost entirely devoted to generating electricity. However, the energy we use the most is in the form of heat, which can only be produced indirectly by photovoltaic panels or wind turbines with a fairly low yield. A solar thermal collector makes it possible to avoid the stage of conversion into electricity and thus provides renewable thermal energy in a direct and more efficient way. Moreover, it is much less known that a “mechanical” wind turbine can perform the same function in a windy climate: by oversizing its braking system, a wind turbine can generate a significant amount of direct heat by friction. It is also possible to couple a mechanical wind turbine to a heat pump, which can be less expensive than using a gas boiler or an electric heat pump powered by a wind turbine (wind turbine dedicated to the production of electricity ).1l
The link still broken.
Are you leading us on or what?
