“An international consortium has filed an application with the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 measure to develop a Mammout 10+MW onshore and offshore wind turbine. The total cost of the project is approximately 38 million euros. In case of a positive financing decision, development of the turbine will be carried out by the international consortium and subcontractors in 2018-2022,” Jonatan Karjus, spokesman for AS Eleon and Meta Advisory Group, told BNS.

Companies that have partnered up to form the consortium include Windnovation Energineering Solutions GmbH, Windrad Engineering GmbH and P.E. Concepts GmbH from Germany. Of Estonian companies Eleon AS, Civitta Eesti AS and Meta Advisory Group OU are involved in the project.

The project is based on Eleon’s patent for a direct-drive wind turbine that is protected in 150 countries. “A three-megawatt prototype wind turbine developed by Eleon and operating in Saaremaa has proved itself technologically and created a basis of trust, which is demonstrated also by the strong network of international partners that wish to take part in this project,” Karjus said.
